    I'm not eligible for the New Every 2 yet, but I've called a couple of times and I've been told I could early upgrade for a $20 fee.

    Anyone know if I could upgrade using the wirefly pricing, Welcome to our Wireless World with an early upgrade?

    Thanks

    edit: after reading over the description in that link, is that only available if i were going to be a "new" verizon customer? not current?

    That's for a new account, from playing around with it, the price is a good bit higher if you're just adding a line to an existing account. Plus you have to be careful with the fine print:
    DEACTIVATING THIS PHONE OR DOWNGRADING FEATURES OR THE RATE PLAN MAY LEAD TO ADDITIONAL CHARGES
    Our goal is to provide you with the very best purchasing experience possible, including huge savings vs. buying in a retail store. Your phone purchase price was reduced by an Equipment Discount of $200 ($300 for PDA’s/smart phones). By accepting this price reduction, you agreed to repay this discount if, during the 181 days after your new equipment is activated, you:

    Fail to pay your balance due to your carrier each month
    Disconnect this line of service
    Transfer this equipment to another line of service
    Change your carrier service rate plan to a lower monthly service rate plan
    Deactivate the email/data feature if one was required at the point of purchase
    Transfer/port an existing phone number from another account if this is a new line of service
    Replace an existing account with this account if this is a new line of service
    Return or exchange your phone and it is not in its original, new condition with no more than 30 minutes of usage
    If you break any of these contract provisions, except as a result of a documented service quality issue related to the carrier service, you authorize us to charge your credit card in repayment of the Equipment Discount.
