hey guys normally when i go to verizons website it says that i'm eligable for an upgrade. then when i click upgrade my device all the phone are 5-6 hundred dollars and it says this "Upgrade at Discounted PriceEligible for New Every Two on 04/24/2012. "

but today I go and do the same thing. it still says "Upgrade at Discounted Price
Eligible for New Every Two on 04/24/2012. " but all the phones are priced @ 200 dollars except for the bionic which is @ 300.

are they allowing me to upgrade early? this is my my 2nd year with verizon so I don't know about this new every 2 thing. can someone shed some light?

"New-every-2" is the program (soon to go away) that allows you to get a new phone at the promotional price that a new customer would pay. They typically allow you to upgrade at about 18 months into your current contract.

The prices you're quoting are accurate.

Yeah that's what I thought, so It's saying I'm not eligable till april but they are offering me the prices right now. Is there a reason? Only thing I can think of is they want me to use it now before the new line up of phones comes out.

Unless you've hit 18 months, IDK why they'd be offering you reduced prices.

I was @ the store paying my bill and asked them. they said it's a deal with "the smartphone plan" you are on. you gotta pay 20 bucks to get the phones for 200 or wait till april and get them for 200 -30...so wait 6 more months and save 50 bucks?
