Checked Your Verizon Account Lately? You May Have an Earlier Than Expected Upgrade Date

First, you may want to check your Verizon account to see what the status is on your upgrade date. The middle account of mine above previously had a much later, like 2012 date and is now showing as December 29. And I’m not the only one seeing this change. A reader tipped us to his account that has now been switched to 12/19, yet he bought the DROID Bionic on the 2nd day it was out back in September.

I’d say Big Red wants to make a big end of the year push to get you into one of their new top tier phones like the Rezound (review), RAZR (review) or Galaxy Nexus (whenever it comes out).

And second, ignore the “Samsung SCH-a950.” I use that as a placeholder while I swap out phones and have nothing better to put there. 🙂

Cheers Matt!

    Mine still says the original date in August of 2012 but states I can upgrade now at the discounted price.  Just upgraded last December and both lines have smartphones.

    seriously contemplating the nexus now…

    just checked my account… i’m eligible for upgrade 4/09/10, while my wife’s line isn’t until 8/22/12… 
    funny thing is we both upgraded for Christmas last year…

  • Davros

    Just realized I have 3 updates available on my family plan. Helllooo Nexus 🙂

  • Michael Martin

    🙁 I am still a year away, got the tbolt say of release and my upgrade says 11/17/12…….guess I need to wait for a quad core, oh well

  • Michael Tollon

    Mine wasn’t changed but it showed the 2 ye upgrade prices….made no sense

  • they’re moving up dates on dumb phones to get rid of them.. like T-Mobile did a while back.

    I upgraded by using my wife’s line back in June. That line is still showing upgrade date of 2/19/13. Was kind of excited that it could bumped up so I could get her a new phone… her’s is starting to crap out.

  • I bought the D2 at launch, still only seeing the same slightly earlier than original upgrade date of 4/12/12. I’m in no big rush to upgrade, so I don’t care.

  • Stangerdude

    Yay 12/29 for me too on a T-Bolt

    Mine isn’t and I have it in January.

  • It was weird how i found this, but wish it was this week not the 19th 🙁 I want a nexus NOW, my Bionics headphone jack annoys me.

  • Jose Guitian

    i got my D3 in august. brand new customer and my date still says 2013. i really want the nexus but im adding a line anyways so id take an upgrade to the D4. i guess im not that lucky.

  • Loubernocco91

    nothing new for me, still showing 8/12

  • Nealbakewell

    No luv for me either……

  • Mine got pushed up a few months earlier than before, but still too far off.  I will be taking my wife’s upgrade for the GNex and giving her my Bionic.  Then I will have to wait 17 months for the next big thing, which will no doubt be delayed by Verizon until month # 20.

  • Anonymous

    I have an early upgrade for my D2, but they also say I can get an additional discount if I wait till my actual date, which is in April I think. Not sure what they mean by this though :s

    • Anonymous

      Sounds like my situation… in my case it is b/c I still have one “New Every Two” upgrade available. Under the old plan the primary line could upgrade every year at the new contract price or wait the two years (technically a few months less than two years) and get an extra discount. Since I still have one NET upgrade left, I can upgrade now at new contract price or wait until April to get additional savings.

      Perhaps this is what’s happening for yours too?

  • JT

    Like Kellex, my upgrade date moved up.
    Also, like Kellex, it says I can upgrade at FULL PRICE…

    DOH!!

    I call bull. I got the Droid X the first day it came out and I still have to wait till 3/12 for a full discount.

    Looks like someone wants to boost their q4 earnings reports. Someone high up at Verizon must be planning on selling off a ton of stocks in the next 3 months, this has “boost the value asap” written all over it.

    Yearly Upgrades FTW!!!

  • KMLN

    I noticed my upgrade when I got the 4s< my early upgrade was for march and i was able to pick up the 4s all randomly.  i had one for june lets see if its available now.// just checked and it still says june/ 2012

  • George Fayad

    Still early 2013 here on both lines. Both D3 upgrades.

  • Rsims26

    No love here.  I guess having 5 lines through Verizon doesn’t help.  I’m still showing 10/12 and the other 4 lines are 2/13.  By the time I can upgrade the Nexus 7 will be out.

  • rob

    Mine is 12/20 as well and my rooted og droid is trying to die before then. No early upgrade, and I am getting pretty antsly trying to decide between the razr and the Gnex. Had moto for years….but this is getting tough.

  • Ericmarkwilliams

    The only “dumb” phone on my family plan has had it’s date moved up to this Dec 28th.

  • J Dub

    Same as it has been the last 2 years.

    Gonna wait till 12/20 then both lines are due. Here’s to hoping for a BOGO with the G-Nex included. Then my wife and I can each get what we want.

    Not that it is relevant really, but I noticed my ATT account is eligible about 15 days earlier then it should be.

  • Brian

    I had that phone and loved it “Samsung SCH-a950.”

    • Was one of the first decent MP3 phones. Classic phone.

  • Stephen D

    Dates are the same. They should at least give us D3 owners early upgrades with the Droid 4 coming out in 2 days. Probably gonna be no ads like the 3. 

    • Tyler

      Droid 4 is probabally not coming out this week. While its possible its not as likely. Last paragraph of on this page talks about it. http://www.droid-life.com/2011/12/06/two-new-galaxy-nexus-dates-echo-our-previously-reported-december-9-launch/#more-54937

    • Stephen

      I am still 5 months away from my 2 year upgrade from my Droid 2, I don’t think you have any room to ask for an upgrade just yet…

  • nuffin fo me 🙁

  • It’s good to see I’m not the only one with placeholder phones. The wife and I both have 2 LG Dares we keep as placeholders for upgrading but we were both so happy with our Droid Incredibles that neither of us upgraded this past year so now all 4 of our lines are able to upgrade.

    • Anonymous

      how does this work?

      • If no good phones are out that you want on a added family line, you can essentially drop the data package off and throw on a feature phone to hold its place. Only costs you $10 rather than $40 or almost $50 with taxes.

        If you don’t have a feature phone handy, I’ve had VZW CSRs throw on a dummy phone that they had available to hold the spot.

        • Anonymous

          is this so that you can get upgrades more frequently?

        • Anonymous

          i have a single line on my account, no family plan.  but speaking hypothetically, can i go to VZW on g-nex launch day, add a line, add the nexus (at a new line cost?  or upgrade cost?), flip the nexus to my original line, and then add a feature phone (my wife’s old flip-phone) to the second line and drop the data?  all at the cost of a new phone (discounted pricing?) and a $10/month placeholder???

          • Willis

            Yep!

          • Dan Letsch

            Yes and no – if you already had a family plan, then yes this would work, but to add a line, you need to have a family plan.  It may work out being just 10$ different, but you may want to check.  I was considering this to order one through Amazon had the GN actually come out for the cheap deals on the week of black friday.

          • Anonymous

            Absolutely. I do it ALL the time. In fact, I just added a RAZR when Amazon was selling it for $0.01 – went into Verizon a couple days later and had that device switched to my primary line and a dummy placeholder was added by the rep to the line that was activated for the new phone. I really don’t think they care – they are still making money off of you.

          • Anonymous

            Plus it probably looks better on the quarterly report to have non-data lines then cancellations.

          • Anonymous

            Only problem with this is that you can’t get unlimited data on any new lines. Right?

          • Anonymous

            New lines, no. However, my primary line is unlimited. I can keep doing this until the cows come home, basically, and keep my unlimited data with new devices. Unless of course Verizon changes that process.

          • Anonymous

            So in theory, if you time it right, you can have a new phone every year for $10 x 12months = $120(placeholder), Plus cost of the phone?

          • Anonymous

            Yes, in theory. The $120 over a year is a small price to pay to keep getting a new device more than once every 2 years or more. The downside is paying an ETF for older lines when I don’t want to pay the $10 anymore. Crazy sacrifices for fun toys :d

          • I would be very careful with that. I work at a dealer and have seen plenty of people do just that. What they don’t realize is that they sign a contract on the plan and not the line. I’ve seen plenty of people get charged a $175 disconnection fee for dropping the data plan.

        • Anonymous

          I have had them do this as well – in fact we recently had them do this with 2 netbooks on our account that are still on-contract.  They essentially took the dataplan off and assigned it to our account as a ‘Test Device’.  Still keeps the contract so we don’t pay the ETF but reduces the cost to $9.99/mo before taxes and whatnot.

        • Just so I understand this correctly. I have my Dx on Family plan (not eligible for upgrade), so I can go ahead and purchase a smartphone – say Razr and next day go to Verizon and ask them to switch the phone with my Primary account and cancel the data on the NEW line and place a different feature phone on that line? 

          What about the data plan on the new line? Will they allow me to drop off the data plan from my new line? Is it necessary to add a new line from Verizon website? or I can do that from any online retailer?

          I knw many have already answered the question, but just wanted to make sure because it seems too good to be true and I don’t want to incur additional $40.. per month on the phone I will not use at all.

          • Anonymous

            Understandable. 🙂

            I order a phone online for $10/month using a family plan “add a line” (NOT individual line). I then charge the device to my account, unless I hav e money. Once the device comes in, I activate it directly onto my primary line and activate a junk KRZR on the new line. When you drop a smartphone the data package is automatically dropped as well. The only charge outside of the $10 you will see are any partial charges for the time you had those features activated. I had a extra step when I got my RAZR. Since its sim based, the number for the new line was already activated on the card. I had to go Into a retail store to have a new sim issued for my primary line to use the device. The upside to this, the rep added a dummy device to my account, so I don’t need my KRZR anymore. Just a side note, I’ve been doing this for 2 years and have actually gotten 2 phones for free out of it. Somehow directly activating the line on my main line instead of e news one tripped out the system and failed to charge me for the devices. Maybe you will have this luck too!

    • All about the placeholders.

    • Anonymous

      So, you kept two placeholder phones for a year?  Wouldn’t that cost about as much as you’d “save” in the upgrade?  2 phones x 12 months x $10 = $240…

      • It would if I was only upgrading 1 phone off-contract, but the wife and I both change phones everytime one really peaks our interests so in the end it’s much less than buying 2 phones off-contract

        • Anonymous

          Cool.  Sounds like a good option, then.  Plus you get the extra phones if you needed them for backup or lending I suppose.

  • Ive noticed that it is usually to the primary account holder. For example my primary account holder is eligible for an upgrade on 8/4/12 but it says upgrade at a discounted price now!

    • HuskerHog

      The primary is usually elegible sooner than the other lines as I am now.  I will, however, receive and extra $100 on my usual upgrade date.

    • Usually the case, but the line of mine that was changed is a secondary line.

    • boy get back to studying

  • HuskerHog

    No change on my account.  Upon calling Verizon, I was able to verify that i will receive my $100 New Every Two incentive towards my new phone (Galaxy Nexus).

    • In looking at my account it only shows $50 incentive online, is it different if you call or go into a VZW store?

  • Yes I have the upgrade option since last month even though I qualify for upgrade in July 2012

    I got an early upgrade last month and I had bought the dinc2 on release day. Verizon loves me cause I love their droid phones. Now it’s galaxy time.

    yes it shows upgrade price (i wasnt supposed to be eligible until sometime in 2012, not sure exactly) this is news for me! i hope this will hold for friday am when i get my GN

  • Mustangjoe302

    I’m eligible close to 8 months early! galaxy nexus here I come!!

    • Why take it though? Chances are you have a decent phone right now and who knows what they’ll come out with in the next 8 months. I’d hold out, early adopting has its downsides

      • Jared Kirk

        I don’t understand the concept of the term “early adopter”… if he gets a Galaxy Nexus now he’ll be an “early adopter” for that phone, but if he waits 8 months and buys whatever comes out then, he’ll be an “early adopter” for that too.  The only way you aren’t an early adopter is if you buy something months after it comes out, which is just shooting yourself in the foot even worse than if you were an early adopter because you’re buying outdated tech.

        • What if he didn’t wait 8 months and only waited another 3 or 4? Until they no doubt will release another handset and any bugs ICS has initially might get worked out

          • Jared Kirk

            My point was, no matter how long you wait, if you buy what ever the current phone is at the time then you are an “early adopter” for that phone.  If you’re talking about ICS, then that is another story.

  • Anonymous

    Wow, that’s awesome! Hopefully I, too, will have an earlier than expected upgrade. Currently, my early upgrade is set to Mar. 2012, and if I buy the Galaxy Nexus when it gets released, before Mar. 2012, obviously I’ll have to pay full price, but if my early-early upgrade is set for sometime this month, All I’ll be able to say is…WUNDERBAR!!

  • toasty

    My wifes phone (fascinate) shows 06/14/2012 upgrade date, but shows “Upgrade at discounted Price” then gives me all the same pricing and selection as my line which has been eligible for months

    • Me too. If i can get the Nexus for 299 im pulling the trigger

      • mine too, can anyone confirm this is legit? I dont want to walk into the store and get shot down

  • Mark

    My wife and I got our OG Droids in Feb 2010, so it would stand to reason that our upgrade would be available Feb 2012 (I haven’t really checked). I looked on our account and it says both of our devices were upgradable as of Sept 2011

    • I believe it’s normally 18 months, on a 2-yr contract for the upgrade.

  • Ive been fighting w/ Verizon the past 2 weeks to let me upgrade early… instead they want me to wait til March for my upgrade. Doesn’t. Make. Sense.

    • Haven’t been fighting with them, but I also have received no upgrade love when I called them, in spite of being eligible in Jan!?

      • I was nice the first couple times, but then I just got annoyed w/ their responses. By the time my eligibility time comes the phone will be less and they’ll lose money on the deal. I just don’t get it…

        I’ve eligible for phones on two lines on Jan. 6 and have been arguing with customer service for weeks to please just move it up two weeks so I can give my kids new phones for Christmas. No budging. I’m considering buying at full retail to give at Christmas, then when Jan 6 comes around get the same phones at reduced price and send back the “rentals.” I even explained this to customer service, that it would be a hassle for me and leave them with two used phones to sell, but still won’t move eligibility day the lousy two weeks.

  • I bought the T Bolt a few weeks after it came out but I have been given an early upgrade as well. Though the upgrade date says I am not due, but if I click on upgrade it lets me buy at the new contract price. Check it out. It may not make a difference what the upgrade date says.Come on Friday!

  • Anonymous

    Mine is unchanged at April 13th.

  • I’m not due for my Upgrade until March but for the past 3 months or so I’ve been able to upgrade and get the discounted new contract price. I’ve held out.

  • Wow. They reduced both my lines by 4 months. Too bad that still puts them in mid 2013.

  • Don’t always rely on what the online account says. Go to a Verizon Wireless Retailer (not a corporate location) and have them check your account. A lot of times there is an upgrade available that customer service and corporate locations will not tell you about, but Verizon Wireless Retailers are more than happy to show you. Many times for whatever reason these upgrades don’t show up on your MyVerizon account. Hope that helps someone out

      That doesn’t make sense. Launch day for the DX was in July 2010. That would put you at a 26 month renewal. They generally put the 2 year contract at 18 months as it is. You should be available for a Mar/April renewal by default.

  • clarkbsharp

    Not me :(, I chatted with the online rep, and she said to call customer service and ask to change my upgrade date….

  • Tblain

    I looked at my account a few months ago because I couldn’t remember when my contract was up exactly. I knew it wouldn’t be until next year, but wanted to see the month and date. Low and behold it told me I was already eligible to upgrade (with a new two year contract of course), but that I would get a further reduced “loyalty discount” price if I actually hold off until the anniversary. It seems to only be about a $50 discount though, so I will go ahead and forgo that in the interest of picking up the GN on release day.

    I got an early upgrade on my account a couple months ago (shortly after getting the Bionic). Been saving it for the Galaxy Nexus ever since.

        If you pay your bills on time and have a problem with your phone you can usually get an early upgrade. This latest upgrade just came out of nowhere though. 

        Maybe they felt bad about selling me the Bionic then releasing a bunch of better phones a couple months later. j/k

  • dates all the same here, nothing moved up

    I have an upgrade waiting… now I just need a worthy phone to blow it on. And no, it will not be a Nexus!

    • Waiting on that 12 core uberphone?? Must do some serious gaming/processing

      • FortitudineVincimus

        Nope…

        I am waiting on – in no order – (1) more premium materials (2) a better than laughable 5mp camera (3) better battery (4) quad core which is proven to be better at not just speed of course, but battery life given it’s “5th companion core” (5) thinner/lighter. These exist on phones already, except #4, just need them combined into 1 and that will happen in early 2012.

        The Nexus? It is just about ICS and nothing worthy in the actual phone hardware.

          You realize the more mps doesn’t mean a better camera. A 5mp camera with a good sensor and good software will take far better pictures than a 8mp without. Although I do agree about the nexus not having anything else noteworthy hardware-wise.

  • Not for my account…… WTF? Not fair, they would only have to bump me up 3 months so I could apply it to the G-Nex!

      email them a very nice email asking that they bump up your upgrade date.  tell them how excited you are etc about the phone.  that’s what i did.  and it worked, i got like 2 months shaved off the end of my contract.  may not be much, but it worked.

      If you are the primary line on the account, they will pretty much always give you a free upgrade (after 1 year) if you call and do it over the phone.  I have done this pretty much every year.  I just call and say my phone busted and I need a replacement, and they give me a new one at the new 2yr price.
