    Default Those of us on VzW already going to feel iphone pain on Jan. 16

    Verizon, evidently due to the high cost involved in getting the iphone on the network, is dropping the option in a few days for "new every two" and early upgrades.

    Yep.

    Thanks. Nice customer service there.

    they should take a page from the Netflix playbook. Netflix does a far better job with customer relations and customer service. Or Bed, Bath and Beyond. Or even Kohl's.

    I think Verizon execs went to the same screw-the-customer seminars that Best Buy shirts attended.

    Only applies for new customers (read AT&T-ites going for the VZ iPhone). Existing VZW customers are grandfathered in.

    However, Storm2 owners will only receive $.02 for their upgrade when it comes time for a new phone.

    I don't see where the pain comes in. I interpret this change like the norm. If you were already on NE2, you don't lose your upgrade. For instance i'm in month 23, even though I just got a new S2 back in Nov. If anything you're bound to that device in months 13 -20 like it says. That's how it should be. Its not NE2 if you're trying to upgrade after a year. New customers can't miss what they never had, so whats the problem here, and old customers will either switch or live with it.

    *giggle*

    That made me smile.

    Seriously, though, I think I will pass on the iPhone and just wait till the Droid Bionic drops. It looks uber-sexy.

    I have to remind myself I'm upgrade eligible in August. But, I also have to remind myself to check if Oregon has that dubious law like California where I'll be taxed for the full retail price of the phone.
    I will never understand these "help me to decide" threads. Grow a pair, or put on your big girl panties (whichever applies), and make the decision that works best for you. - AmazinglyGraceless.
