Can I upgrade early if my screen is cracked?

Member

I dropped my phone this morning, and when I picked it up, the screen was all cracked. I have had the phone for a little over a year now, and I am under a two-year contract. Verizon allowed me to upgrade early last year when I had problems with my Droid X2. Am I able to upgrade early to a new phone now, instead of paying to get a refurbished phone? I plan on upgrading with Verizon anyways, so I am just wondering if I can upgrade now?

Not applicable

You can get a discount upgrade when your contract ends. If you don't have insurance your other option is to pay full price for a phone or get a used one from ebay/craigslist or a friend/relative.

First off, you can upgrade at any time. Verizon will not give you a "discounted" upgrade until you complete your contract, especially since it appears you upgraded early last time. They may think this looks as if a pattern is starting to form.

I bought a screen off Ebay. Took 10 min to change.
