    New question about Verizon. Do they let you get the full benefit of subsidizing with a two year contract when you are only 12 months into an existing contract?

    I've heard that most carriers do this - allow someone to enter a new 24 month contract (and get a phone discounted) even though the original contract is only half complete. Has anyone done this on Verizon?

    yes.. I bought a family plan in sept. 2010. Earlier this month I already upgraded both lines to iphone 4's.. the secondary line cost me a 20 dollar early upgrade fee but since I was never told I was going to have that charge incur, they just added a 20 dollar credit to my account a few days ago after I called. (gotta love the customer service on Verizon). I exchanged the Iphone4's almost instantly (anyone who uses an iphone is a complete imbecile and has no taste whatsoever.. sorry but thats just how I feel) and I got the secondary line swapped to the HTC Rhyme, and left the primary line alone.

    (this cost me 70 dollars in restocking fees btw, but oh well)

    I went back to the store the next day and it turns out for some reason my original line's upgrade date never reset.. So we called verizon tech support from the store, and within a few minutes they reset my date and I can check on verizon.com / amazonwireless.com / wirefly.com and in store now and they all show me as eligible for an upgrade.

    Sorry that got sorta long.. but the basic point I'm making is Im only halfway into my original 24month contract and already eligible for an upgrade.

    The primary account holder used to get annual upgrades on two year contracts but not anymore.

    If you are already in a contract from before they made the change then you may have one annual upgrade left.

    I've never had any problems with Verizon. At the 18 month mark of my contract I'll be able to upgrade. It would be better if I could have it annually, but I can live with it.

    I have been with verizon for four and a half years so far. I have nothing bad to say about them, I have had no problems with service, I have always had a constant bill with no weird charges. I cannot say anything about their customers service because I have never had to deal with them.

    Since Verizon will finally have a Nexus device. It's now safe to say they will have the best phones to choose from with the best coverage, customer service and fastest 4g...
