    So yesterday I called verizon and asked the lady if they could change my upgrade date. She said "no, its in 2012...." I said "well I really want the iphone, ive been with verizon for years, and att can give it to me faster." she put me on hold...came back and said "my supervisor is currently changing your upgrade date to THIS july" which is nice because of the iphone 5.

    My question is, do they mark that in the account as a manual change? I am tempted to call verizon again and be like "my upgrade is in july...is there anything you can do?"

    I dont know though. I want the iphone.

    I am sure they make notes in the account as well as changing the upgrade date. According to my rep, that is called a manager override which shows up differently in their system.

    Wow.. Dude, I wouldn't push it. Even if apple booms out in July, you can still jump on IP4.

    There definitely are notes on your account stating what they did and when.

    So because you're not eligible for an upgrade you are going to whine about it? This is why companies frequently change their upgrade terms because people always want to get over on the system to get what they want. We are lucky that we don't live in a place where they don't offer phone subsidies and have to pay full retail for everything. You want an iPhone, PAY FULL PRICE. Period.

    Thanks guys. I'll just wait to july. Like JSerr1 said, even if iphone 5 doesnt happen in july i can jump on iphone4.

    Another reason why I wanted it now though is some people think their unlimited plan is going out soon.

    I am on my second droid x, that constantly locks up and freezes, and i dont want to keep a phone that keeps freezing when i want to use it. first one wasnt too bad but they gave me another second one is worse. even with no applications put on it, its sucky.

    Can always call back and try again. It's going to simply depend on who you speak with.

    Sorry, I wouldn't recommend you try again since yours was moved up already. I was speaking to the person who did not have the luck you did.

    We had 2 phones that were due an upgrade in April, and my mom (business account manager) called our rep and she said he was happy to move our upgrades up for the preorder.

    This is about 12 hours after i was told they werent doing early upgrades for the ip4, so it really does deend on who you talk to.

    It depends on who you talk to for sure. I however haven't been successful with getting mine moved up from 2/17. I'm trying to figure out how some people have a $100 NE2 credit and my NE2 credit is only for $50....
