    I bought Spiegan Tough Armor case,Tech Armor Ballistic protector, but Verizon refused to let me order a new IPhone as I am one month away from end of contract ! I even offered them my perfect IPhone 5 free -no dice. I am in a clinical state of depression 😉
    Any bright ideas on a new strategy ?Thanks

    Buy the phone through their Edge program. You can do that at any time.

    The edge program sucks for me. I am a 74 year old guy who does not
    get or need a new phone every year.Also, I have $300 in Best Buy gift cards I want
    To use.I wonder if I call a retention service rep at Verizon HQ
    and tell then T-Mibile or Sprint will pay my termination fee of I switch
    , if that may cause hem to give me a break ?

    Wait until you're eligible? Seems pretty cut and dry.

    That or buy one outright at Best Buy if they'll let you.

    I think it's better to wait based on how much you would have to pay outright versus buying it off contract...

    If you are only one month away, then I would. Some people are still waiting 6 weeks after ordering.

    Perhaps after a month you maybe able to walk into a store get the phone of your choice right away.

    Thanks guys I guess I am stuck! I think being a long-term customer of Verizon would merit me some consideration, but I guess that's business.

    You lived most of your life without any of this tech so just chill.

    Jk, 1 month goes fast and plus you won't need to wait for stock probably.

    Saw your post and had to respond --
    I am 75 and just received my iPhone 6plus last Friday after waiting a 48 day period after pre-ordering on the first day from AT&T. I have to say it really sucked when I saw other individuals that ordered weeks after I did were getting delivery on their units. 😡 I thought about putting my order info in my will, so I could leave it to a favorite relatives. 😋
    But I digress- you will love the phone.
    There are new features you will especially love. In setup make sure you use ZOOM for View. and say yes to BOLD Text.
    You can also adjust type size. (Put away your reading glasses)
    See below:

    I just wish more individuals in our age group were more tech savvy. It keeps your brain cells active.
    I use my iPhone for almost all the features available on the latest IOS.

    I think you will agree, it is worth the wait time.
