    So...

    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!

    Anyone can push an upgrade a week early, we do it at my store and were a retailer. But you should've used the credit, because there will be no more NE2 credits

    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.

    Money isn't a problem for me so $50 isn't too much a big deal.

    So why do you have to wait to upgrade? Why not just pay full price like a baller.

    I wasn't. I just decided today I was definitely getting the bolt. I was between the iPhone and the Thunderbolt.

    Lol @ the baller comment. Anyway, money is an issue with me. VZW moved my upgrade and NE2 up a month for me! They've always been cool with me.

    Enjoy your new Tbolt! Love mine.

    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?

    I've seen 'em do up to a month a time or two. But never more than a month. At least, not for a normal consumer account.

    Wait a minute...

    You moved up your upgrade date by a week, got screwed out of 50 bucks, and you're.... happy?

    Huh?

    You can get new equipment every 15 months (or is it 17) so long as you get a new 2 year contract. The NE2 was a good marketing term.

    I thought of "Superbad" when I read this

    "Why the f*** would it be between that and the iPhone???"

    You can upgrade now (since Annual and NE2 are gone) every 20 months.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but outside of maybe 2-4 weeks before 20 months are up, there is no way Verizon will bump your upgrade date any earlier?

    Sigh... I used my last annual upgrade on my TBolt 2 weeks ago. 19.5 months for my next upgrade... eh, that's what eBay and Criagslist are for I suppose.
