There are some people who refuse to be under a contract - and full retail gives them that

You can't as a customer service business generically state "All customers" not add any exclusions, set a very odd time for ordering at 3AM, have those customers you sent the invitation to arrive on time, and then let a portion of them know when all was said and done they are not eligible, sorry, the invitation wasn't meant for you
In regards to the the same questions being answered in such various opposite ways, are these reps just not paying attention in these meetings? Do they not have this written ANYWHERE? I am curious if the powers that be at Verizon pay attenton to any of this, or know it's going on? I definitely don't believe it is intentional, I think it is just ignorance from the top to the bottom, and a concerning lack of paying attention to detail
As they say, to each his own.
But the merits of a contract aren't the source of confusion. The million dollar question is whether you need a line that's eligible for an upgrade to pre-order, whether you pay contract pricing or FRP.

Right above that?
A button that says "Upgrade Now"
Click that button and it brings you to a page to select your line to Upgrade, and says "Upgrade at Full Price"
From there, it brings you to your phone selection, showing Month to Month (Full Retail) pricing.
So, technically, by VZW terms, we are ALL upgrading.

Well I got my 2 lines ready for upgrade today. Took back the free phones I got from VZW when I started service last week. Added my 2 old flip phones, got my upgrade date reset and I'm good to go. I really didn't want to deal with standing in line on the 10th to start new service. So now I'm good and ready to order. Only downside is I know have to use this crappy flip for a little over a week. Man I remember the days when having a flip phone was something everyone wanted. Couldn't wait for the next best one. Now with this little behind screen and crappy Internet (not sure you can even call it Internet) it's just brutal. A small price to pay to not have to spend my entire morning waiting in line.

Edit to add... the Feb 10th date is the target date to have pre orders delivered, not when they start

Geez, I go for a surgery consultation for a couple hours and you guys rack up five pages in a new thread! I think we're getting crazier as the date nears us. I still can't decide if I should add that extra line because I'll probably have to pay activation and everything, but I probably will just to be on the safe side.
