I always wonder this question and someone on this forum may know. When i got my Bionic i signed a 2 year contract. But after 1 year I can upgrade to a new phone, correct? But the kicker is that you do not get the discount for the phone like you do when you sign a 2 year contract. Is this also correct? I think having the same phone for 2 years can be pretty dumb and although I like my Bionic i wouldnt mind upgrading after a year. Any help on this would be great without having to call verizon or actually going in. Thanks!
