Ok you guys. My official upgrade date is on Nov. 4, 2012. On Friday my mom called Verizin to see if we could upgrade because some of our phones weren't working at all and they granted us updates but only if we order over the phone. So my mother and I want to order our phones from Radioshack. (I'm getting the Razr HDfor $150.) But we're not sure if we can just order the phones from Radioshack now and then just call Verizon to activate them. Also, the Verizon rep said the earliest we order from an actual Verizon store is on the 29th, a week before the official upgrade date. So if we can't order the phones now, do you think it's possible to order the phones from Radioshack on the 29th? or do we have to wait to the official date? b/c my dad and sister just got their smartphones (b/c they bought theirs over the phone) and now im so anxious to get my phone! So if anyone has any experience in ordering a phone from Radioshack or any second-hand stores.. plz post them or even iif you have any type of information on this process.. plz comment!! thx!
