I have never known of Verizon buying a phone back..ever. If you have seen this please share.

I agree that phone should be free. By the way I have had one(Storm) and I am not a "Fan" of the Tour actually the Curve is probably the best overall BB. I will buy a 8530 as soon as VZ releases that Curve for my wife and I will probably upgrade to the Essex early next year and leave the Tour behind unless the Blawkhawk turns out to be what its suppose to be.:smileywink:

There is no buy back program on VZW, they have is something called Hopeline or something like that where you DONATE your old or unused phone for victims of disasters, etc.  If ya think VZW will offer some sort of discount to old Storm owners you are dreaming, best bet is sell it online or something where you can get more money for it.

Ok so let's stop beating around the bush and get it out there...........................Hopefully an ADMIN or a REP from Verizon can help us with this one question...

 

 

WILL STORM USERS GET A FREE UPGRADE TOWARDS STORM2 OR SOME SORT OF DISCOUNT?

 

I have been hearing a lot of people saying that they go into verizon stores to ask if verizon will do such a thing.......

and the employees at the verizon stores respond with yes they will be mailing out forms/coupons/rebates to your home. Is this true? Please can someone clarify.

i honestly do not see verizon giving a new storm2 out to storm1 owners for free. that would never happen when most people got the phone for free...and do you think they would give you another free phone? there will be an os update to your storm1 soon that will make your storm1 run like a new phone...download a 5.0 os and you will see the difference or wait for the official os update to come out which will be real soon. the only discount i see to purchase a new storm2 is your contract is up with verizon and your up for an upgrade. rim and verizon cant be giving out free phones like apple. if you are the 1 group of storm1 owners sorry...get in good with a verizon rep is all i can tell you if you paid the original price. i didnt get the free or discounted storm1 deal...and i'm over it. and i actually like my storm 1 now that i've did upgrades to it. and i'm not sure i even want a storm2 right now even though i'm up for an upgrade in dec.

Wow!  Everyone has made this into something it wasn't.  My thread didn't start with give me a free phone or I want to trade my phone in.  It was very simple; will Verizon offer sometype of discount to Storm 1 owners.  You know like $50, 100 or 150 off of the normal price.  Although as usual VS. reps are staying away from this question because they have not received any guidance from above.  Thugster is the only one that really gets what I was asking.  I am happy with my Storm 1, although the memory leaks and small application memory that is significantly improved on the Storm 2 would be nice to have.  The new 5.0 OS will not fix this or increase memory size.  Everyone have a nice day and enjoy.  :smileyhappy:

My wife took her LG enV in as the touch screen was locking up and when it was not locked up it just sucked.  She asked for a replacement and was given a enV2.  The rep told ehr that Verizon knows that it was a piece of junk phone and anyone who came in with a complaint or issue got the new model, no questions asked.  Why wont they do that for the Storm?

Your post presupposes that Verizon Corporate structure values already existing customers, considers fairness in its decisions (as opposed to just profit), and rewards persons who takes chances on new phones. None of of those things exist.
