    A bit of clarification on the story (minimal) I didn't physically walk into a V*rizon store...I had an issue with my Storm 1 and was talking with a rep on the phone. I mentioned that I was extremely unhappy with the performance of my Storm & asked if there was anything that he could do to "help me out" with an upgrade to the Storm2. He asked for me to hold on a second as he pulled up my account, I mentioned to him that I was not eligable at this point in time for an upgrade (as I had checked on that with MyV*erizon and the date was sometime off in 2011). He said "thats not a problem, if you got a Storm1 you are eligable for an upgrade to a Storm2" and you can take advantage of a $100.00 rebate.......etc etc. I am not going to get into how much I spent and yes I did have to indenture myself for another 2 years (but what the hell, I am ok with V*rizon and we have numerous lines with them - both personal & biz). Got my Storm2 2 days later via Fed-Ex and I have to tell you that it has been years since I have actually been excited about owning a new phone. The 2 years & x number of dollars that I spent is well worth it.

    Thats the long & the short of the story all. I'm not sure if I scored with a cool sales rep or karma was coming my way that morning but I say call them & gently push to see if we can pull one over on the big V (with their veiled threats of up to $175.00 cancellation fees)

    Peace out,
    thm
    They told me same thing. P can get the storm two for the 175. With the rebate. That's what they said but I said no. I have has ten replacements. So they told me a rep will call me Monday.

    Must be nice. I went to a store and was turned down so I called and they turned me down as well. Even a Manager said I have to wait. So I'll just stick with my Storm and not worry about it.

    I asked my buddy today who is a VZW rep as well, and he said that of course that COULD happen in certain instances, but obviously it's the exception and not the rule. Point being if you deserve the upgrade after having to replace 10 Storm 1's, it makes sense that they up you to the Storm 2. If you someone like me who has only had ONE Storm replaced and are trying to scam the system to save $175/or retail price, then unless you get lucky this will not work for you. Im gonna wait until something happens with my storm or an actual vzw deal is offered.

    As for Beachbunnimom being spectacular....these comments are worthless without pics! hehe

    Now back to the Panthers v Cardinals, go Panthers, despite Delhomme!

    I didn't join this morning to one up anyone or feed any kind of frenzy. I was doing a favor for a pretty girl (stir stir) who is a friend of mine. The title of the thread was V*rizon upgrading Storms. From my perspective this rumor has been confirmed (upgrade you inside or outside your "due date"). The title wasn't "Walk in to V*rizon store & they will hand you a Storm2", but I understand that the internet/forums breed online cynics & I can appreciate that. On another note, the Storm2 came out on October 28 @ $279.00 & they are now offering it on their website @ $179.00. As stated above in a post I noticed, there is def. something going on with Ma V.
    Back to sunday football. Peace out.

    Incorrect. They are still going for $279 online with an instant $100 discount which is the same as going to the store and getting the $100 MIR.

    If this is true, I wonder if my friend who works for VZW can hook me up. Right when I was thinking of going Droid
