    I bought my storms last march and haven't gotten any offer from them. Both storms have been replaced once each. But, I just found this link via dealswoot that will let you buy the droid for $119.99 + 35 activation fee with only a 2 year contract extension. I'm thinking about it.

    I saw that last week. I think you are better of selling your storm on ebay.

    I think I'm gonna take a stab at this one this morning, been mulling it over for a few weeks. What's the worst that could happen right? No?

    New Droid should be in Friday!
    Okay strike 1 for me, called regular VZW CS and was told to call the number on the flier. The flier I have (from the photo at the start of this thread) has no number on it. Anyone have that number so I can give them a call? Or should I just call VZW CS back and keep trying to get a rep 'in the know'?

    Thanks for the tip Rel. Was there anything specific you told them? i.e. received this email/snail mail, want to take advantage of it and upgrade, of course being as nice as possible without sounding fake. I'm always nice to CS reps even when they piss me off, since when I started out in banking 11 years ago I was on the phones and know what that is like being on their end of it. Any other pointers before I try back? I do know that I'm marked as a VIP in their systems thanks to my buddy who I got my Verizon acct through, a guy I graduated HS with.

    Okay so I just had an 'ah ha' moment here....if this can be done in the store as previously stated....and I've got a best friend who works for VZW as a sales rep in the store....who listed me as a vip in their systems....Isn't there a chance HE could do it for me if I took this flier into the store? Since apparently it's up to the reps discretion anyway right? I know there are some who aren't eligible who have gotten it, so its obviously up to the rep.....I'm gonna try to call him now, I might have been banging my head against the wall for no reason. (when IS a good reason to bang your head against a wall though?)

    Jnespa....any idea on that since I think you work for VZW as well?

    If he is nothing more than a sales rep then the chances are low unless he is in good with the manager. The sales rep's do not have the power or codes to change that. So its going to be a toss up if he can get you anymore than where the next rep would. Dont hold it against him if he cant
