    Wont hurt to ask. I would call up CS and speak with them first. You can also check online if you are signed up with MyVerizon. In terms of a non-BB device, you can not go wrong with LG devices, but if you are eligible for an upgrade then I would get the Tour if the discount price is n your price range

    You shouldn't have to pay full retail either way......... Your NE2 date is 4 months before your contract end dates

    Austin, are you on a one or two year contract? If a one year, you will need to wait a bit longer to upgrade. If two, you should be close.

    Also, is December your contract end or is it your upgrade eligibility date? I've seen a lot of folks confuse the two.

    To elaborate on what I said last night, Verizon has a policy (I believe its still valid) that if you break/lose a phone, don't have insurance, and aren't eligible for any kind of upgrade, they will sell you a new phone, sans contract, for the one year contract price..........

    The other thing, is that if you are the primary line on the account, you can pay an extra 20 dollars and upgrade one year into your contract st discount pricing, as long as you sign a new 2 year agreement.
