    Saw this on Droid Life. Wonder exactly what group will be eligible for the upgrade.

    Well, according to the statement, there are "high risk" and "high value" customer groups.

    "High Risk" screams customer retention to me.

    "High value"? Not sure about that one. Maybe that's the guy who bought every ridiculously overpriced and proprietary accessory in the store for their current phone, and would probably do do the same thing for the new phone they get (in other words, one of those types who's "born every second")

    I wonder if Verizon is afraid of customers defecting to Sprint for the EVO. The timing does fit.

    I need to find out about the "Excludes customers who used special promotions in the last 12 months" I got an email the beginning of April about upgrading early and used it....but I dont know if it was a special promotion....

    I don't see a good shot of them upgrading you a month after they just upgraded you. It's still worth a shot though.

    I wonder if this means there will be no new high-end VZW phones until July:(
    All this talk about the Shadow has me excited.

    I believe that "High Value" means a customer with a voice/text plan of 69.99 or higher.

    I'd almost take advantage of this, but I'm eligible for an upgrade Sept 6th anyways. I don't think anything out there tops my Droid enough to make it worth losing the potential for a big upgrade in 4 or 5 months.

    I hope they would let you too and if it was about being nice I'm sure they would :)

    But, it's business and they are only gaining one month of loyalty by shelling out roughly $300 bucks for you. I don't see how it makes business sense for them.

    Also, they are backordered about 3 weeks on the Droid Incredible they aren't worried about sales numbers.

    With that said, I'd still try....you never know what you can get. Good luck!

    this could prove either verizon is not getting the iphone which could slag down their network because why have a big promotion close to the release of the rumored droid2/xtreme/shadow whateever phone they are going to throw out at us. Apple will be announcing the iphone 4th gen very soon and when that drops customers are either going to pass or go the android way. Or verizon may be doing this because they do not want everyone flocking to the iphone ( if they get it ) because it could possibly slow their network down. That is also why they want to lock you in to NOT upgrading for 12 months after you use this promotion. i know this may sound dumb but it actually would make the network slowly be able to handle the mass users that could come to verizon. Thats just my two cents i hope verizon gets the iphone cause i would buy it as a second line but i am android all the way and hopefully they dont get it because it could slag down our wonderful network so we can wait till lte is a major go just my thoughts i know alot of people are not ganna agree but

    Hope this works. Gonna try to upgrade everyone one on my family plan. I was thinking of going with Sprint but don't want to give up my loyalty years with Verizon. Plus, I get better service when we visit family out in the middle of nowhere.:heart:

    I personally think it is because they want to get people locked in for another two years that are nearing the end of their contract within the next 6-8 months. And also put a new gadget in their hands. That keeps them from possibly jumping ship to the iPhone 4g, Evo, or HD2.

    I had an Incredible in hand today and was about ready to add a line and buy. The transaction before me was taking a really long time so I was browsing and came across this on Droid Life. Decided to wait the three days on the off chance that I may be eligible. Saves me from adding a line.

    Keep this thread alive should anyone upgrade who was not previously eligible for upgrade. I purchased the droid in November, but would use this promotion (if possible) to grab the incredible.

    I'd say this is Verizon's way of prepping for iPhone battle, but I don't think the dates line up all the way. I thought the rumored iPhone 4g was to be announced at Apple's WWDC June 7th. Wouldn't the phone be available sometime, a few weeks or months, after the announcement? By that time, the promotion would have expired.

    Only thing that I can imagine would lead VZW to try and lock people in with a promotion would be the new iPhone on AT&T.. whether the dates lineup correctly or not. Every potential smartphone buyer they lock in is one more customer that will not jump ship.

    Very true and with the new advance phone cancellation fee, people will not be able to jump ship without paying a pretty penny.

    My wife just informed that her coworkers boyfriend is a manager at a local Verizon store. She said he might be able to upgrade with this promotion and gives a bigger monthly discount on our phone bill.:icon_eek:

    Will post update on Saturday.

    We need a verizon rep to explain what this all means. Especially what makes a person eligible for that NBA (Next Best Activity) business.... seems to all hinge on that.
