I just have to ask this question to any of the VZW moderators. Will Verizon offer the original Storm owners any type of discounted price to upgrade to the new Storm? A lot of us have gone through hell and high water with our originals and have stuck through it because they are good phones, at least mine has been with some minor issues. The new Storm will be out approximately one year after the release of the first one. Many upgrades and a better more stable system. Don't let this turn out to be the same customer dissatisfaction issue AT&T had when the new I-phone was released. Customer satisfaction is what VZW has been about keep it that way besides the great network.
What do you think the answer to this question is? If you have had a lot of problems they can probably get you in a new phone at the one year price if you are VIP.
There are a few criteria that must be met. Basically if you have a BASE plan of 79.99 or higher and have paid your bill on time for a full year.
I was recently told by customer service on the 800# and by reps in the store that the VIP program had been discontinued earlier this year. I also was told that the best time to get a deal is toward the end of the month in the store, especially if they are short of meeting sales quotas.
NO its not discontinued what I believe they meant was that people are chosen for it once a year and that is around Feb. You just cant switch to a 1400 min plan and be VIP. You have to have the plan and good standing for a calender year starting in Feb and ending in Feb.
LOL Why would verizon want to buy back a Storm 1? They are trying to unload them for 49.99 right now. Its stinks being an early adopter on a phone. How would you like to be a tester and have to deal with all the early problems. I dont see how the Storm would even been able to dial a number at first.
