    My contract does not end until 11/24/14. I would like to upgrade to an iphone 6 and take advantage of the $200 trade-in offer, but I cannot upgrade until 11/24. I read somewhere that I can add a line and get the 6 on that line, then when the phone arrives to switch? how does this work? Has anybody here done this? What additional charges will I be paying if I did this?

    Thanks for any input on this.

    Verizon has begun offering two month early upgrades... try calling customer service and see if they'll "wave a magic wand" and bump your upgrade.

    EDIT: To expand on this, they may let you upgrade early if you pay them a little extra. My husband's last "dumb phone" died a few years back and we were able to do an early upgrade to an iPhone on his line (he ended up taking my upcoming upgrade). They charged us an extra $30 to do it.

    All upgrades have a $30 upgrade fee now. That just started last year.

    Nooooooo!!!. Jeezus, do not offer to pay Verizon more money. Just tell them "I'm a loyal customer and I'd like to get an early upgrade". And also ask them to waive the $30 activation fee.

    Oh I know...not thrilled about it. Just relaying what happened for us a couple of years back.

    I was able to get the upgrade fees waived on my three lines a few months ago. I just asked for it. I do it every time.

    I'm trying to prevent someone from giving their hard earned money to a big corporation.
    Yours was not great advice, so sheesh yourself.

    Verizon just announced that they will allow those who normally would have had to wait until November, to upgrade early.

    Where did you end up hearing that. Not being offensive, just curious.

    The upgrade fee and the activation fee are two completely different things.

    I asked this in another thread but I don't believe I was very clear with my question. My upgrade isn't up until 11/15. However, I've read on a few links that Verizon will give me $300 trade in for my 5s and a $200 Verizon gift card. Not sure how this works. Will I be able to use the $200 gift card toward the purchase of an iPhone 6+?

    Thanks for posting. Who would have thought Verizon could do something nice. You don't even HAVE to use it for an iPhone. Crazy.
    I thought the same thing!!!

    I'm not sure about the money for the trade but if you original upgrade date is Nov. 15 or before, you can upgrade now to any device.

    What I should have typed is my upgrade is due 11/2015. I guess I'm out of luck.
