I just called and they said Verizon doesn't offer early upgrade anymore. So, how do we get the new iPhone without spending a fortune? $300 to cancel your plan with Verizon. $300 for the 64GB iPhone 5. That's alot of money. Looks like I'm stuck, as well as millions of others. Thanks verizon. Wish I didn't singup with them or any carrier. How could I buy an iPhone 5 and keep my same plan on Verizon or is that not possible? This sucks.
