My NE2 upgrade wasn't until next friday, the 16th. However I called customer care and asked if there was any way I could use my upgrade today. The lady on the phone said yes, the only thing is I will loose the $50 credit, but that's totally okay with me. Getting my Bolt sent in the mail! So excited! Got my Seidio case in the mail today too. Woot!
Yeah...I was a good 2 months away from my NE2 and upgraded with no problem. A lot of people didn't seem to realize that your "upgrade eligibility" date and "NE2" date (which provided an additional discount) were different.
Of course, NE2 is over now, so I guess the point is moot.
Well all i can say is that i HAD to pay full retail for the Tbolt i had no available upgrades. I love every penny spent on it (coming from BB).
I did however upgrade to a 4G mifi hotspot WAY early on my contract. I had called about having trouble on my older model mifi and tier2 tech offered me the 4G hotspot. SO i upgrade way before i was eligible. SO early that it only added 3 months from when my contract was originally going to end. SO i think they are trying to get people switched over?
