    So oddly enough, a weird thing just happened. I tweeted about how I was going to be jealous of everyone getting a Tour on Sunday, and then I recieved a promotional text message from VZW saying I could upgrade one of my lines at the 2 year promotional agreement price, which would only extend my current contract 3 months. AKA I'm super happy Going to call and order shortly.

    Don't know if you can pre-order by phone and get the best price. On MyVZW it's $199 - $100 instant rebate = $99 out the door price. I had heard they'll charge more if you order by phone (sorry, can't remember where I read that).

    I'll wait until Sunday and got get one at the store.

    Are you talkinjg about the 10mo upgrade??? Im confused its sounds like you got your storm 3 months ago since your only extending your contract 3mo. Are they doing this for all storm owners?

    Yeah, I got a text back on Monday. I laughed because I guess it didn't turn out that I needed to contact CS about upgrading early. But oh well I already have, and will continue working with the CS member to get my phone ordered.

    My "special and private offer" ends on the 12th according to the text. Anyone else's expire that day as well?

    that sucks! I want that too! Is that something that if you went to the store that your account would indicate you were included in the "private sale"?

    If you go to the store on Sunday and call CS, they'll gladly move it up for you. Just be charming
