    Not yet. Mandy has a company loaner I believe. Those who pre-ordered should be getting theirs around 5/30.

    Okay I have a question...I am eligible for an upgrade today and went through the preorder process and when it came to the payment part I always select the one that lets me add it to my next Verizon bill...it did not have that option is that because the phone is a preorder or does Verizon no longer have the add to bill option when purchasing a new phone? Hope this is clear...thank you in advance.

    I don't believe you can pay through your bill with pre-orders. Only credit card.

    Sometimes customer service able to offer an early upgrade over the phone. There is no hard-set time frame for an early upgrade. It depends on payment history, length of time as a customer, etc. I have seen early upgrades as much as 2-3 months early. Now then, when you do an early upgrade you are NOT restarting your contract. Additionally, early upgrades are not eligible for pre-order devices. Only currently fully stocked phones (non back order) are eligible. Also iPhones cannot be offered for early upgrade. Hope this answers your question.

    Hey Mandy, Thanks for the great info. Couple of quick questions if you don't mind while I wait eagerly (impatiently) for my new phone. Does VZW put any less pre-installed software on this phone than others, given the fact apps can't be moved to the SD card? I think I read that's a JB thing, though. How much branding has Verizon done to the phone and do you consider it unattractive or unobrusive? Got a lot of questions on how useful the new "tricks" are in your opinion, but I don't want to overask my welcome. :)

    THANKS

    To be clear here, there are two different types of "early upgrades" mentioned in this thread. I'm sure you're correct about the one you're speaking of - where you call in and customer service obliges. However, a lot of customers still have an "early upgrade" at the 20 month mark of their contract. Those types do work on pre-orders and iPhones. Of course, once the remaining crop of people with contracts expiring before January 2014 disappear, those will all be a thing of the past. Perhaps "early upgrade" isn't the term for that anymore, but I know it used to be.

    You are correct, the ability to freeze apps are part of Jelly Bean now. I would say it has about the usual amount of VZW bloat, but has a decent amount of Samsung bloat as well. Its nothing that cant be removed with root.

    I think my favorite feature is the hover. Basically, I can eat cheetos and read text messages without getting my screen cheesy! Do love that.
