    If your new every 2 is June 29 you should be able to upgrade, or be really close to an upgrade. Click upgrade online, and see what it tells you. Side note. From what I hear the battery on the thunderbolt is HORRIBLE. good luck though.

    Evo 4g and inspire 4g both had crap battery life. Considering they share a lot in common yeah it's more or less a given... HTC does not give 2 craps about battery life.

    And I can probably find 100 of these easily...

    actually spoke to VZW on a similar situation (my company is taking over my line, so I am looking to upgrade my device at the same time...) and the VZW rep told me you could do the 'early upgrade' exclusively at a Verizon Wireless Store (not a Best Buy or other re-seller) one month earlier than the official upgrade date.
