Curious, how are you planning on doing this? Is there any way to upgrade to an SE if still on contract other than having to pay the full $500 up front? I'm on a launch day 6 so I'm on contract until September. I'd happily consider the Apple trade in program (looks like I'd get $250 for my 6 and then spread the remaining $250 over 24 months, which would only be $10 a month), but I can't seem to figure out if I can do that while still under contract or not (do not want my plan or plan price to change, except of course the $10 a month extra for the new phone). Is there a way to get an SE while still under contract without a large cash layout up front? EDIT: I looked at Verizon's site, they will let me do it for $20.83 a month for 24 months (aka the full $500) AND I would not be able to trade in my 6 to them to reduce the $20.83 a month? wtf?
