    A single data point (your experience) does not define a trend.
    If you're gonna go through a forum and nitpick everything people say for faults and flaws in logic, you might want to get it right. The OP had multiple visits to Verizon where this happened, so it's more than one data point.

    ANYWAY

    Yes, I've had this and it's annoying. Back in what, October or November of last year I think it was? A bunch of iPhone rumors for Verizon came out, and I got in a fairly heated argument with a VZW guy about whether or not Verizon would get the iPhone. He said "Why on earth would we get that crappy phone, we have Android. We don't need it." Which is like, the number one defensive, pointless reason given for hating pretty much anything that threatens one's beliefs, haha.

    I don't know why they do it, but they should stop. If I go to Verizon to get screen protectors (why are they like, the only place that sells clear protectors?! aaanyway...) and they try to sell me an Android one more time, I might just blow up. Taking the Android phone section with me.

    I was shocked today when myself and my girlfriend went to the corporate Verizon store and was looking to get a case for my iPhone 4 and told the rep that we were going to use an upgrade for her to get the 4S. He said very good choice. I was shocked then when I got a case the other rep asked her do you know the difference between the 4 and 4S? She said no and he said then you should get the 4 I told him its going to be her Christmas present and she is getting the 4S.

    Yeah I told her that she will really like the camera and it will be supported longer than the 4. I think the reason they told her that was it looks like they still have a stock of 16, and 32GB iPhone 4's in stock. So my guess is that they are trying to get rid of the stock they have. Also told her we are not using an upgrade for the 4 when the 4S is not much more than the 4"s they are trying to get rid of.

    This last time, I ordered mine (from Verizon) by phone since I needed them to move my upgrade up a couple of weeks to make it here in time for Christmas, but I very rarely have a good experience going in to the Verizon company stores. I typically find I know more about the phone I'm asking about than the reps do. I'm sure it's not all stores and all reps, but I've had more luck online or on the phone also.

    I only had about 2 weeks to go, but you can always try. The worst they can do is say no. :-) (Maybe wait another month or so and say you want to make sure to get them in time for Valentine's Day!)
