I'm 23 months into my 2 year contract, my contract end date is September 19th (I have a launch day 6). I wouldn't mind upgrading now and I suppose I don't really care about signing a new contract for an SE, since I can get the phone for just $50 if I do vs. $500 to buy it outright. On one hand contracts suck, but I guess I've never really been bothered by them either, since I only upgrade every two years anyway. Any chance getting Verizon to move that upgrade up to now? I know this used to be possible but I think in recent years for whatever reason they've really cracked down on doing this for people.
