I am sure they got many calls from angry storm 1 owners since storm2 launch so they are probably developing an emergency plan

So if you have a s1 replaced 3 times in 90 days (or multi fru) and think about this.. you want a large screen, touch, not winmo, push email... no physical keyboard.. what does that leave? Storm 2. With that said dont expect this just because you have a S1 but if you have a S1 that you have had replaced quite a bit it is worth a try. Just remember be nice, tell them why you got the storm1 what I just said, and dont throw a fit. THe nicer you are to CS the more they will want to do to help you.
I honestly do not see them doing this. They may work out something with a rebate of some sort, and maybe you would have to trade in your storm 1 to RIM through their trade in program. That may get you a little closer to the 179.99 deal, but there is no way VZW is just going to give them for that price just because you own a storm 1. Just my opinion.
I just picked up the Storm 2 on Wednesday and there was not mention of this; yesterday we went to Verizon to upgrade my girlfriends Storm and there was no deal (at this time) - even after explaining all the challanges with the phone. They did offer to swap her existing Storm for the same one .
We'll have to wait and see what happens, but I doubt that they will be discontinuing the Storm (1) anytime soon - so no discounted upgrade/trade in
they have already discontinued the storm 1, they are just now depleting the stock of it.

So, my friend said he paid less than $100 for the upgrade. I still didn't get exact details, but I'll send him the thread so he can chime in. Oh, and he did say he used a rebate.
Woo Hoo! Going to Verizon today!!
