    I recently bought my wife a Droid Eris. A few days later the announcement drops that the Droid Incredible was releasing on the April 29th. DOH! Anywho, I purchased the Eris on Amazon Wireless. Her phone has been activated for about 2 weeks. Funny thing is, Verizon Wireless is still showing her line as eligible for an upgrade. Not sure if the system just hasn't updated yet or what. I'm thinking about returning her Eris to Amazon and preordering the Incredible.

    Yes, if you buy it straight from Verizon, you have to sign the two year contract also. The only way you won't have to pay full price is with NE2 and signing a two year contract.

    what if I already had a contract with the droid? I would need another 2 year contract on top of that?

    Correct. In this case, you'll have to be with Verizon for at least a year to qualify for an annual upgrade. If you don't have at least a year in, you're probably going to get shot down on ANY discount. Basically, if you've finished one year of two on your initial contract, you would sign another two year contract to lock you in again.

    Three, actually. You would have been through one and the one remaining would become two remaining. But if you just got the phone in December, you won't be valid for the upgrade discount until December of this year. Have to have one year down. Like the other poster said, your cheapest option if you really wanted the Incredible would be to add a second line. For you to get the Incredible now, since you aren't at a year, you will have to pay full price for it.
