Anyone else think that Verizon is dumping on their existing customers, when it comes to the iphone?
I am using a phone I got as a Verizon customer from 2005, a Moto V276 flip phone, because the last 3 BlackBerry Storm 2 I have had have not worked correctly. But because I am in the middle of my 2 year agreement, I am getting told to pay $649.00 for a PHONE or just forget about it.
To me this is bad customer service and not a good way to retain customers.

you and others are right, a contact is a contract and I will live with it.
Also, there are no other phones that have generate the interest that iphone ha and by this board still does
I have 4 opions
1) live with a 6 year old phone.
2) try using my 4th new Blackberry
3) pay $240 to leave Verizon, and sign under a family member with AT&T, with a new Iphone for $49.00 and $50.00 a month as a extra line
4) let my contract run out and not use the line and sign under a family member with AT&T, with a new Iphone for $49.00 and $50.00 a month as a extra line.
Time will tell,
well I paid full retail in july for my droid x so I could save my upgrade date for when or if the iphone came out. I been a vzw customer since 2002 .... what should I get if I decide to not use my upgrade... that I have saved
not true, AT&T let any customer extend their contract and get an iphone, even if you where 1/4, 1/2 or 3/4 into it.
My guess is that they did that because they knew that the were losing exclusivity, and were trying to get as many customers as possible stuck in a 2 year contract instead of jumping ship to Verizon.
I have always assumed I would have to fulfill my contract before being able to sign a new contract and getting a discounted phone. Maybe I am in the minority, but I thought that was how it worked. Why do so many people think they should get out of the contract they signed?
I guess I was not clear, AT&T did that when the iphone first came out.
Yeah but if you were less than halfway through the contract, a 16 GB iPhone 4 cost $399 instead of $199. So that's a $200 upgrade fee.
