    I got an early upgrade but only at the 1 year promotion price. I hope they will credit those that bought early.

    I'm not quite seeing how an early upgrade for $279 - $100 rebate, and a contract renewal is a "DEAL"! For almost the identical phone as the one I have! With the new OS .328 my Storm 9530 runs great and does everything I need it to do, and fast! I don't think I'll be rushing in for this "DEAL"! I think I'll wait and read the reviews, and see what else comes out between now and August!

    ok... I just spent some time on the phone with VZW and here is the skinny I got... the rep I talked to said that there is no plan that he knew for VZW to give away early phone upgrades... but... he told me that if the plan on the phone (phone+data pack) was $49.99 or higher that we were eligible for upgrade after 1 year at the two year price of 179.99... so, on the anniversary of the Storm, 11/21/09, which is when I got mine, I can get the Storm 2 for 179.99 or I can wait for my NE2 and get it for 79.99...

    I know I won't be running to get an S2. I went and tried on release day but they said they couldn't do anything even CS said no until my actual 1 year date(12/17/2009). I'll just sit on my S1 and continue to use it as I have for the past 10 months.

    I am with you also...I think I'll use the money more wisely...say spending it on my wife and kids and doing something together. Isn't that what life is really about? If my S1 actually DOES go bad, I will pursue it.

    On another note, I encourage others not to make up a story just to get a new S2 after having an S1. I have been hearing many talking of this. I am a high school teacher and I hear kids talking about lying and scheming every day, just to 'get things'. We need not model such practices here. Remember, popular culture does not determine ethics and morals and neither do politicians!!

    We all bought an S1 knowing that a newer model would roll out sometime in the near future, that does not entitle us to the newer one. We certainly do not insist on such a ideal when we purchase a car or new clothes. Why a phone?

    Sorry...I hope I don't trip and fall off of my soap box as I step off!
