Hello Verizon community.
I have an iPhone 4S right now and for some reason my upgrade is on 9/28/12.
I really want the iPhone 5 (4SS, whatever it will be called haha) which should be announced and the preorders should go out on the 12/13th.
I know verizon doesnt let customers upgrade early if they are going to an iPhone.
So I guess my question is, is there a workaround to this?
Can I call the customer support line and ask to move my upgrade a few weeks early, WITHOUT mentioning anything about an iPhone?
And it wouldn't be a big deal if iPhone sales went through and they didn't go out of stock with the first few days. So please dont give me crap like "Just wait!!" that doesnt help anybody. i'd rather you not post. thanks.
Thanks for any help I can get.
So I have to wait until he 28th? That is a real bummer. This new iPhone is going to be out of stock. So i wont be getting the phone for awhile (I sold my 4S and i'm on a blackberry ) and it ***** that my upgrade is 2 weeks after the pre-order and 1 week after the release. I just don;t understand why a Verizon employee can't move up my upgrade by 14 days.

Because if they moved yours up by 14 days, they'd have to move everyone's up by 14 days. I know you said not to say it, but I'm gonna anyway ... chill, dude ... it's just a phone. You can wait a few weeks.
they aren't going to let you upgrade early. it's not just the iphone. the rarely let anyone upgrade early anymore. but since it is the iphone, they definitely won. i highly doubt they want a couple million early upgrades on their books. also, where would you draw the line? if you got the 4 on day one then you probably have an upgrade a couple weeks after the 5 launches, so where do you draw the line? 2 weeks early? 3 weeks early? if they were to let you go 2 weeks early and i needed it to be 2 weeks and 3 days early then what? there won't be early upgrades.
I actually spoke to a rep today about this...and I know it can vary depending on who you talk to. My upgrade is due next week, so I asked if they would move it up as they had in the past. Said he couldn't anymore...they used to be able to move them, at the rep's discretion, when a person was within 30 days he said. This seems true because on at least 2 occasions I had my upgrade moved up before this. Never a lot, usually just a week or 2. It's disappointing just from a standpoint that yeah its a phone but these things always seem to go into backorder unless you can get a preorder.
