    Updated: 5:46PM EST: Information Updated!

    We just received a tip that Verizon Wireless will be extending its Next Best Activity (NBA) program. The NBA program originally launched to allow any Verizon Wireless customers with an upgrade by December 31st, to be able to upgrade to the Droid X early. Now the word is the program is being extended to "select high-value and high-risk" customers. These customers will be notified with promotion details via mail around July 15th. Also, presumably, you will be able to call up Verizon on July 15th to see if you are on the "NBA List."

    Gah, that may hurt supplies. Only 25,000 units available tomorrow. I hope I get one. I'm so tired of AT&T.

    If this applies to me, I may consider returning my Droid Incredible and picking up the X at the upgrade price.

    From what a ;) ;) friend told me... this will be extended to include "high value and high risk" customers. You will have to go into a store or call 611 to see if you qualify. :D

    Since their phone calls are more then likely recorded, they will deny it until tomorrow.

    VZW just recently had a smartphone upgrade promotion for "high value, high risk customers". I didn't qualify then, so I probably won't qualify for this promo either.

    When I worked for VZW, I prided myself in the fact we were given advanced information about upcoming products and promotions. Everyone who works for VZW signs a NDA agreement saying we will not open our pie holes about anything. Taking pictures from their Infomanager and leaking this information is just plain wrong and I'm disappointed there are people in there doing this sort of stuff. I hope they are caught and immediately walked to the door. And, any rep who does what they're supposed to do, and check for updates on the site at work know this already and would also be fired if they concurred with something that was not public knowledge yet. So, yea, the rep may or may not be playing dumb at this point, and some actually care about their job and careers.

    wow you really take yourself way too seriously. it's a picture of a promotion dude not nuclear secrets. verizon knows this stuff is going to leak, it's free advertising for them. i can only imagine what a treat it is being around you in real life. i guess that's why you're a mod.

    also how do you then feel about froyo being leaked? a huge part of the reason people come to this site is to get leaked information.

    My point is as a VZW employee, I signed disclosures that I would not talk about these things.

    As for your other post about Froyo, same as when I was a Blackberry user, of course I installed the leaks. I don't have any idea where they originate from, could be a VZW employee, could be a beta tester picked for one reason or another. It doesn't make it right. I was on a highway doing 75 in a 65 mph zone too. Was it right? No, did I get caught, no. Could I have faced penalty, yes.
