"I'm sorry, the stores aren't getting them until the 15th and with the push for the, they will more then likely be backordered. " Is what a VZW person told through chat...is this accurate?

My email does go to the VZW website and allows me to go all the way to "submit order." I didn't submit yet, just wanted to see what happens. My price is $249 (not sure why) and I get a $100 gift card for VZW, good on accessories or to pay my bill. That brings my price down to $149, assuming my old 1gen Droid is probably worthless for resale anyway. This is much closer to the Costco deal and I'm surely tempted.

The $100 rebate/card/etc... I swear has some 'fine details' that say with a NEW contract, not a renewal. Not sure 100% on this, but I thought I saw that when I clicked 'more information' as the e-mail VZW sent to everyone about 30 min ago mentions that $100 for turning in your old phone but then I started clicking through it and found that blurb.

I got the email.
I have the annual upgrade one last time and my account shows I'm eligible but I can't order at discounted prices. Store in the morning.

It may depend on your contract status. I'm eligible for a 20 month upgrade and I was allowed to keep my same unlimited data plan. As I said, I got all the way to the submit order page. Nothing looked out of the ordinary.

This is what is in the e-mail when you click on learn more. It appears to me that if you have a smartphone already and you are just looking for a new device you are NOT ELIGIBLE.

1) New Customers
2) Upgrading from basic phone to smartphone
3) Adding a new line


New Customers!
For a limited time, activate a new line of Smartphone service with Verizon Wireless, and receive a Verizon Wireless gift card worth at least $100, when you trade in an old phone.
Already a Verizon Wireless customer?

Upgrade
Need to Upgrade? Upgrade to a Smartphone today and you'll be eligible to receive a Verizon Wireless gift card worth $100 when you trade in your old Verizon Wireless basic phone.

Add a Line
Ready to Add a Line? Activate a new line of service with a Smartphone today and you'll be eligible to receive a Verizon Wireless gift card worth at least $100 when you trade in an old phone.

Someone please prove me wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm... I didn't see that. That's kind of sneaky if you ask me. Of course, I also didn't read the part about it being good at Verizon Wireless owned stores only, and you can't use it to pay your bill if you are a ONE-BILL customer either. I'm still going to try. I have tons of old phones laying around, and already have $60 in credits lined up. I was going to try and get $100 for a BB Pearl that used to be my wife's (current trade-in value $1).

You are right about that. Her is some more fine print.
