Quick question: I've been a verizon customer for about 18 months, my contract expires in 06/04... my business situation is such that I'm in dire need of a blackberry type device right away. Is there anyway that I can avoid having to pay full retail for a new phone if I get it b/f my contract expires? Don't know if it matters, but my monthly bill is about $150 to $200 -- always paid on time.
There is an early upgrade policy that states if you have had the phone for 12 months and are on a plan of 49.99 or higher you can upgrade early. Call Customer service and they will be able to help you out.
