    You're not the only for sure Dave. I asked about the early upgrade and they looked at me like I was smoking crack. VZW customer service said they had no idea either and would have to wait until I was eligible for an upgrade.

    There are quite a few "Verizon" stores here in Albuquerque, but the card that I received in the mail only list a few of them. Since most VZW stores are franchises, they may not be involved in the upgrade deal; rather just those that are official VZW stores.

    I got the flyer in the mail the other day but it is for my wifes line, and she has a Curve not a Storm. She is the primary line not sure if that is why. Her NE2 is in march so I think I'm just going to wait until then and if she still doesn't want a new phone then I will take her discount, my line is due in September so she can have that upgrade.

    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,

    This is a very interesting and useful bit of information. I hope I can give it a try and have the same sucessful results you did. Thank you for the clarification! and I know it is a little late, but Welcome to ! The best Blackberry Site on the internet!

    It is my understanding that the flyer was a select customer marketing campaign. I bet that anyone told if you have a storm 1 you are eligible for a storm 2 is part of that flagged accounts. I have talked to CS twice and I have 2 Storm 1, 1 at 11 months, 1 at 8 months and neither is eligible for squat aside from my main line yearly which is June of 10. I honestly don't know how some of you are getting these upgrades, but it's sweet that you are!
    They did tell me pretty much all I can do is hope for the flyer as well... lol
    Oh well, I am not paying retail anyways, so hopefully the new Droid whatever they call it will be out by June!

    wouldn't want an upgrade to storm 2 - we (storm 1 users) are getting OS upgrades much faster )

    Wouldn't want the S2 either - hate the S1 - so why would I get another phone that I will hate also. Just too many bugs and runs out of memory every day. Why should I have to reboot the phone daily just to use it :aargh4:
    I am waiting for the New Pearl - cause the first one was awesome just couldn't get a "new" one when mine died.
