Default Early Renewal Question

I am on a 2 year contract that expires 8 March 2007. The Verizon Website
says that I am eligible for an upgrade on 8 Jan 2007 which is 22
months into my contract.

Does anyone know if they will be able to pull that date forward a couple
of days to like ... 5 Jan 2007? A family member is going back to school
on and I want to get her a new phone to replace one giving her trouble
before she goes back.

How much discretion does the Verizon company store have in these matters?

Tim

money in hand..Nope..Clerk said system would not allow the
transaction. I did not push any farther to see if it was ********.
Good Luck

In article <VETkh.1280$cI.515@trnddc05>, Tim took the hamburger meat,
threw it on the grill, and I said "Oh Wow"...

Very little. It's pretty firm for NE2. Of course it's in your best
interest to wait for your NE2 date, then you get the one or two year
contract price + NE2 discount, usually $100. If you can't wait that
long, you may want to look into an early upgrade which would be sign a
contract for one or two years, get the phone at the one or two year
contract price. Usually, it's about 1/2 off for a 2 year contract. Your
other options are 25% off full retail price, which locks you into
another contract, or just buying a phone on your dime, which doesn't
result in any kind of contract extension/agreement.

Some. Two years ago I persuaded the Verizon store at 101 Arch St to let me
renew a day early. (I believe there was a two-fer sale that was going to
expire that day.) I know this contradicts two other responses you've received,
but there it is.

One thing you could try is to get them to let you renew early but date the
contract from the 8th. Another would be to call the Verizon store in the town
where the school is and arrange the renewal so that she could pick up her new
phone when she gets there. Yet another would be to go on-line and re-jigger
the numbers so that you end up with the crappy phone, which you would then
trade in on the 8th. Several people have asserted that this kind of
transaction is free if you do it yourself.

But the simplest solution may be to renew on the 8th, lock the new phone with
a passcode, and mail it to your daughter at school. Of course the drawback is
that she'll lose service until her new phone arrives.

Thanks to all....

I will wait till the 8th, have them activate the phone in the Company
store, then reactivate her old one and send it down to her, insured for
$300.
When she receives it, I will go on line and activate the new one.
I have done this before when she was not around the last time her phone
broke.
