OK so I have the new every two plan. I am not eligible for an upgrade discount till April. I want to buy the Droid on Friday. Will I still be able to get this phone at the $199.99 price as long as I extend my contract 2 yrs?
Not likely as your NE2 upgrade for a discounted price is not until April... However, if you have to have it and cannot wait... Go into a VZW communications store and see if they'll work with you. The Store Manager has some wiggle-room, but it will depend on his/her decision.
OK so I went to myVerizon and signed in. It showed my ne2 was in April but I still selected upgrade phone. When I did that it took me back to the page of phones and they were all at the new 2 yr contract price. So in other words I could get the Rouge for like 80 bucks and some phones were free. So it looks like I get the discount at this point for a new 2 yr contract and the Droid should be $199.99 for me. I think in April I would get another amount off also from that but as long as I don't have to pay retail (aka 600 droid or whatever)
Consider this. Buy the Droid at promo price as an addiitonal family-share line. Swap the numbers to get your phone number on the Droid. Let a friend or family member use your other line to ride out the contract.
I have the New Every Two feature that isn't eligible for upgrade until January.. I'm willing to begin a new 2-year contract. Does anyone know how much the Droid will be on the 6th without the New Every Two upgrade?
I don't think Verizon has published the retail price, but Best Buy has it for $599. Your NE2 is a $50 discount off of 2 year contract prices. You're likely eligible for 2 year contract prices even though your NE2 date is still a few months out. You'll just not get the additional $50 discount. If you can go online and upgrade now and it shows 2 year contract prices, then you're good to go. You'll be able to get the Droid for $199 (after rebate).
Thought most people received $100.00 for the NE2 and another $50.00 for V.I.P. Perk, for a total of $150.00 toward the new phones... That's how its always been here.... Just went through the routine.... Again..........

If you are past the 1 year point in your 2 year contract, you may upgrade at the 2 year price without a problem... but will extend your contract out by 2 years.
You won't get the extra 30, 50 or 100 off for the NE2 discount.
Some Verizon managers in store will act like they are doing you a favor. They really are not, they are doing what they are allowed to do. (I heard one in the store today telling a customer that because he was a manager, he could probably get him an upgrade... I bit my toungue and walked out of the store, cause I knew he was not doing a favor.) I will be driving further next Friday to get my phone, as I do not like people that lie.
If you have a problem next Friday getting the phone in the store, order it online for $199. You will save the tax, not have to deal with the rebate and will get the phone quickly.
What is the new every two price for the droid likely to be?
My wife is due for new every two the day the droid comes out. How would I go about switching the phone numbers if she gets it for me?
