Can I purchase an iPhone 6 at retail price and transfer everything from my current phone onto it without being eligible to upgrade?

I currently have the iPhone 5C and am looking towards buying the iPhone 6, but my upgrade eligibility isn't until November 17, 2016. I would like to purchase this new phone and have no problem paying the full retail price. But, will my plan stay the same as it is on my current phone? Are there any fees I will have to pay for upgrading early? Also, after purchasing the phone, what do I do to transfer my stuff?

If you buy full price, no change to your plan and no upgrade fee.  Use iTunes to transfer your stuff.  Your contract doesn't change, but you are still paying for the 5C, so keep that in mind.  Might want to sell that 5C to recoup the cost of the higher monthly access fee associated with contract plans.

Could I trade-in my 5C at Verizon?

IDK....you wouldn't get much if they even let you since it is under contract.
