    Has anyone heard the price of the blackberry storm? Verizon sent me a text message saying I could upgrade early with a new 2 year agreement and get a reduced price. The storm is the only device that I might consider an upgrade. Thanks.

    Nope. You'll have to wait until the device is released to find out.

    Release dates and prices that are given out now are just speculation and rumor.

    Did the text specifically mention the Storm as an upgrade option?

    If so, I'd bug customer service for the answer to your question - and if they can't provide one, tell them to stop teasing you...

    If not, it's entirely possible that they might limit the phone models eligible for an early upgrade, due to the anticipated level of demand for the phone at launch time.

    mgm is right. that is a standardized text sent out to many ne2 customers by vzw. pricing has not been given to reps yet and is commonly recieved 2 weeks before launch. I'm sure we will flood crackberry with official pricing and dates once we have them. any poking around you find now is just speculation.

    i asked them about that and the rep seemed to think it would be covered unless the offer had an expiration date before the storm comes out. She looked for a date but did not see one, then went on to explain how even if it was expired by then they could put it on my other line and then move it to my current line so i would still be eligible for the prorated price.
