I wonder if Verizon would be willing to let some people move into windows phone 8 earlier than their upgrade period. I have to wait until 09/13 for a normal upgrade, but I would love to get into a 4G LTE windows phone before that. Yes I know I could pay full retail price for the phone, but who seriously wants to do that?
No they won't. You already get an early upgrade at 20 months instead of having to wait 24 months when your contract ends. So you're stuck waiting 11 months
Who wants to pay full price? People that REALLY want a phone badly and those that want to keep their unlimited data.
Yeah, I'll be paying full price for the Lumia 822 most likely, or whichever WP8 is cheaper, to keep my unlimited data for a little while longer but to also keep my upgrade should there be a later Lumia with a Pureview camera 6 months from now.
