Possible Early Upgrade
I currently have the first Blackberry Storm. I am looking into upgrading to the Droid 2 as soon as I can.
Purchased Storm: 1/17/2009
New Every Two Eligible: 9/17/2010
Contract Ends: 1/17/2011
I (for the heck of it) was looking at the pricing for an early upgrade online at Verizon. It told me that I would have to pay full price for the phone, but when I looked at the list of phones it gave me the discounted price. I went on and went forward all the way until I had to submit changes to my account. The order summary still gave me a cost of 199.99 for the upgrade.
I read that there is an early upgrade offer through the end of the month, but your contract had to be ending by 12/31/10 where mine is 17 days later.
Has anyone else seen this and tried? And if so, did it work?

Looks like they're allowing an early upgrade, but it doesn't appear that you had any New Every Two discount. That may be the difference, i.e., they're allowing the early upgrade, but not the additional discount that you'd get on 9/17. Are you the primary line on your account?

I am the primary line, and in fact the only line on the account. I only heard that I can only save $50 with the new every two. That doesn't matter to me. I would like to get it now. My Blackberry is now acting real slow and I am getting fed up with it. I have been itching to move to a Droid for the past three months. I can't wait another 35 days...
I guess I will either do it soon, or think about it over the weekend...

I went through this with a csr the other day too. As of aug 18th, i will have had my tour for 1 year, at which point i am eligible for an early upgrade. If i order online, i can have a DX/D2 in my hands for $219. No promo involved. They charge you a $20 fee for early upgrade.

Switch from BB Storm 1
I switched from the BB Storm 1 to the D2 two weeks ago. Am I ever glad I did. Wow, I am SO much happier with my phone now. It was also nice that the $199 did not mean having to send in for a $100 rebate. It was an instant rebate.
