    If you have access to the My Verizon account online it gives an exact date. I think they let up to three months early but you wont get the 50$ off till the actual date of upgrade. Or something like that.

    And always remember to read, read, read, and read some more!

    Verizon shows my date as 5/25/2012 but I can update with a discount now (12/2/2011). Not all of the four phones on my plan are eligible for an early update though.

    Verizon called me about a promo they are running that gives me $150 off the price of my phone as long as I upgrade to a 4g phone, and I am nowhere near my upgrade time. One Rep told me it's probably because 4g will be coming to my area soon and they want most people to already have their handsets before the switch.

    Must be nice. We're still not on the 4G map yet.

    If I could get $150, I might consider the RAZR...or grab the Nexus, whenever it arrives.

    I was told by a verizon rep that I was eligible for an upgrade after a year into my contract. But that rather than getting $50 off I had to pay $20 more. So if I wanted a $300 phone I would have to pay $320 instead of $250. I would be eligible for the $250 price after the 20 months into my contract. At least that's how he explained it to me…don't quote me on it though. It seems like you get a different story every time you call.

    Might even vary between corporate stores and authorized resellers.
