When AT&T released iphoen 4 last summer, they allowed users to get it early as long as you are eligible for an upgrade in 2010. That was very nice of them. But, people still screamed and cried that they were not eligible because they weren't eligible until 2011. So, they screamed and bashed AT&T's customer service and networks. blah blah. Now, it's 2011 and Verizon iphone is here. Verizon just killed early upgrade program. Are they offering early upgrades? No. Are they offering any discounts what so ever? No. And no, that 200 dollars credit from your smartphone is so bogus because you will probably make more money by selling on ebay or craiglist. Based on my experience, AT&T has been always more open on giving me early upgrades and waiving fees, etc etc. But, I saw so many threads about how annoying AT&T is. But, what I have seen so far with Verizon is so disappointing. But, yet.. There aren't many threads about people asking early upgrades to Verizon and I see some threads about paying full price. So, AT&T users... Why you all always whine so much? And Verizon users... Why are u so forgiving on this BS upgrade policy?
