For those of you going from Curve to Storm...
I'm sure many others on here, like me, purchased their Curve in May and signed another 2 year agreement...and now the Storm is coming out next month. Is there any way around having to pay full price for the Storm?

i have a hookup at vzw. so i will pay whatever someone with a new contract will pay. and ill sell my curve on ebay for prob 250-300 it will go for with all the accesories i got for it. heres a tip buy a car charger, extra skins, screen protector, extra travel charger, and a few batts, you can get them on ebay for under 20 for all of that.
but yea, i had a friend take a broken phone in and told the vzw sales person heres 50 cash for your pocket, how can i get around paying the full retal price, they said no problem. so there are ways. be creative. and shop on ebay for accessories. bundle them in with the phone ur selling.

You guys might not be wanting to be spreading that around...if that info makes it to the wrong person the your "vzw hook-ups" will be canned so fast they won't know what happened.
BTW, there is no "manager pricing option"...a manager can choose to make a exception to the policy and give you something that you don't qualify for...but they do have to be a justified good business decision. Managers have been let go in my region recently for shady practices and there are a few more that are on the hotseat currently.
So, my advice, keep your "connections" quiet if you don't want them to go away.

I know someone who wants to switch to Verizon, but just wants a basic phone (was looking at the Juke). I told him I'd give him a brand new LG VX-8100 I have laying around if he gets the Storm when he signs up. Basically, I'd pay for him to buy the Storm, give him the 8100, switch the phones on the accounts, and I have a brand new Storm!
That is, of course, if I really want the Storm. I had an iPhone for a while, but the entire time, I missed having a physical keyboard.

if you are already on a family share plan, the easiest way is to just add a line for 9.99 and get it at the 2 year price, switch it to the line that you actually use, and keep it as an iwannaupgrademyphonebecauseimimpatient line .
if you are not on a family share plan, i would recommend taking a look at youre usage and creating one? this would then give your primary line (if not already) definite annual upgrades, youll be an upgrading maniac.
this is all under the assumption that you would like to keep your mtn and you like verizon that much. i know people who use 1 phone and have 5 lines
