    So my contract end date is 9/18, I talked to Verizon and I've been told that I can't preorder without paying full price for the phone. The question is if I buy the phone at full price from Verizon online tonight, will I be able to return it to the store the day I get it. Then "re-buy" the phone at the two year contract price?

    Any other way to pre-order a phone and pay the 2 year contract price?

    I don't believe they HAVE to resell you the model you just returned, so if they sell out, you COULD be screwed.

    If they have half a brain they will sell the same one back. Uh Oh.... there is the problem.... :(

    Yeah I'm not sure I would return the phone to that store if they didn't allow me to repurchase it.

    Thats the risk...:rolleyes:

    You can reserve a phone without paying for it until you get there. Them just pay the early upgrade fee :)
