  • No. Under normal circumstances, they just chop off what was left of your last agreement, and just say you have another 2 years of that agreement from this day forward. Sprint does it, AT&T does it, and your local cellphone offshoot chain should do it this way too.

    My 2yr contract ends this Nov. I was able to early upgrade to any phone as of July 20th. Holding out to see what will happen w/ the 2Ghz phone first. And still qualify for 1yr or 2yr discount.(incase anyone was wondering) Currently have an LG Voyager w/ no data plan. @BeeJay- when you log into “myverizonwireless” your upgrade status is just to the left of the “your usage ” box on the home screen. It should show your phone with a timeline when you can upgrade. That's what I have anyway.
