For Those Upgrading At Full Retail: Trust Twitter Or Trust The Other Reps?
Just catching up on everything this morning after getting home from the ER. I've been having unbearable pain lately and last night it felt like a fish hook wedged deep in my stomach tissue that someone was reeling in. It hurt like hell and come to find out, it's because I have a ONE INCH kidney stone (I have 26 total) blocking my kidney from functioning. So I know it's completely off topic, but I brought it up because I have to have emergency surgery at some point this week and the only thing keeping me sane was knowing that I would have my beautiful new iPhone 4 on the way. Then come to find out, once I was home I read what Verizon wrote on Twitter! It makes me so mad but I need to be prepared either way. So what I'm going to do is activate my old Versa without a contract and if I need to use that upgrade and pay the ETF, I will. However, I'm going to try to upgrade as full retail first. What's everyone else going to do?
And sorry about all the off topic info, it's just what's really on my mind and it helped me explain why I was so immensely saddened and disappointed by the news.

One would think that those reps who represent Verizon on Twitter would be the most informed, best trained, and the most in the know in order to set the proper expectations.
Verizon has been, I think, less than adequate with some of their handling of PR, and addressing FAQs - we've come up with questions here that I don't think they've dreamed of answering, but should - pre-order shipping being the biggest.

I am trusting the email I received, and will be holding the representative on the phone that I will be calling accountable for that email if for some reason I cannot reserve mine at 3AM.
Good luck with that surgery Jakes, feel better!

As for the topic at hand, sorry, but it 100% could go either way. This is one of the most "everything is up in the air, no one knows what is going on, keeping everything a secret, not having their sh(^( in one sock" launches I have ever seen.

I wouldnt see why you wouldnt be able to when there is always an option for full retail purchase and twitter isnt always accurate not to mention alot of the things verizon people tell you. Since they sent out an email to me and I am not due for an upgrade until July I cant see why you wouldnt be able to

Anyway, it doesn't much matter to me what Twitter says. Thank GOD I have a line eligible for upgrade!
If I didn't, I would DEFINITELY add a line with an old phone on it so I'd have a line ready to upgrade.
