    Much better than the $250 - $300 we keep hearing about.

    Pretty annoying, says I'm not eligible for an upgrade since it's my annual upgrade. Argh. Guess I have to go through Verizon no matter what.

    When did it tell you that you were ineligible? I have 3 months left but it let me order.

    There's a link that says "Am I eligible" or something. It said I wasn't eligible until 9/29 (the date of my next NE2). But on vzw.com it says I am eligible (annual upgrade).

    Hmm, I didn't use that link but I did type in my cell number and acct number when I ordered. I got a confirmation email and that's it so far.

    I read something that says if you buy from wirefly, you can not change anything with Verizon for the first 6 months. (Even a larger or smaller text plan, minutes, etc.)
    If you do, it's considered a breach of contract and you get tagged with a bill (also read to be around $300).
    Can someone verify this please?

    Actually you can always upgrade your plan, it is if you were to downgrade your plan in any way, or change the number that will cause the carrier to report that as a deactivation to us and take away our commission.

    That is why our purchase terms clearly explain this. You can read them in detail here: www.wirefly.com/about/purchaseterms/

    and here they are as well:

    Wirefly promises you savings in the form of instant discounts with no rebates or gimmicks when you sign up for wireless carrier service on a 2 year agreement. Delivering on this promise means that you must agree to maintain your agreement for a minimum of 6 months after activation. Deactivating your phone, or downgrading features or the rate plan, may lead to additional charges. To provide you with significant savings vs. buying in a retail store, the price you paid for your device includes an Instant Savings Discount from Wirefly.
    By accepting this Instant Savings Discount, you agree to repay $200 of this discount ($300 for smartphones and netbooks) and authorize us to charge your credit card in repayment of this amount if, you signed up for a 2 year agreement and during the 181 days after your new equipment is activated, your wireless carrier notifies us that the services you purchased have been suspended, disconnected, or deactivated, or if you return your purchase outside of the return and exchange provisions of our 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee.

    If there is anything else that I can do to be of assistance to you or answer any other questions, please let me know. I am happy to help.:)

    Ahh, nice to see you guys are on here. I love how the terms are written in plain English and not a bunch of legalese.

    Just put my pre-order in with you guys. :)

    will you be sending the phones overnight on the 17th or standard ground shipping?

    So if I have a family plan and one of the lines is eligible for an upgrade and I use that upgrade and then change the phone to my line is that seen as a breach of contract?

    So grab the $200 deal if you're not going to do anything for 6 months. If you've got a real NE2, not just eligibility to select a new phone on contract price, and you currently have a smartphone, then the $149 price that results will beat this.

    If you call 611, use option 2/2 to get your upgrade eligibility. If it says you are eligible for an upgrade, that means you're only beyond your contract obligation. If it says you are entitled to a free phone worth up to $100 or a $100 discount toward a more expensive device, then you have a true NE2 offer.

    As far as I know, wirefly cannot redeem NE2s, although if they can I'm sure their rep will comment here. If they can't then their deal is great for people moving over from other carriers and for people in contract eligibility. It also ties the price for NE2 customers who are currently using a dumb phone because those only provide a $50 NE2. The only way to beat the wirefly offer is with a smartphone NE2 offer from Verizon. That happens to be my case, so I've looked into the NE2 situation specifically.

    That will depend entirely on the shipping method you selected. If you selected overnight, then it will ship overnight. If you selected standard free shipping you should get it in 3-5 business days. If you have an order number and want me to review your order and shipping method, PM it to me and I will be happy to review and help out.

    It is possible that the carrier will report that as a deactivation. If you have an order number, PM it to me and I can review your order and see if we can do something to avoid the carrier from reporting that as a deactivation to us.

    If you have a problem with your phone do you have to send it to wirefly or can you send it to Verizon or a Verizon store to get it fixed?
