Upgrade from S4 to Nexus 6 two months early?

So I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 that has served me well for the last (almost) 2 years. However when it upgraded to kitkat maybe 8 months ago, the battery life just tanked. Lately it's only gotten worse, and no matter what I have tried (closing apps in the background, replacing the battery, turning off GPS settings) the phone simply can't hold a charge longer than a few hours. I've been trying to hang in there as long as I can, but I'm at a point where I can't even go anywhere for extended periods of time without a charger because my phone will likely die while I'm out and about.

So, now that the Nexus 6 is out, I want to upgrade. However, I'm not due for my upgrade until May. I heard that Verizon allowed its users to upgrade to the new iPhone early so long as they were within a certain time bracket with their contracts. Does anyone know if Verizon would cut me a break on this? Obviously I'll just wait out the 2 months if I absolutely have to, but I've been very loyal to Verizon for a number of years and I would hope they would return the appreciation!

they used to do it at the 20 month mark. not the case anymore. they've gotten real strict over the past 3-4 years about early upgrades. they did it one time when they first got the iphone, but i would count on waiting 2 more months if i were you.

DON'T. I have not been able to receive a call on my Nexus 6 for over a week. Verizon Wireless has no idea and doesn't seem to care. I'm told Atlanta FBI is without incoming call service as well.
