So my 2-year contract is pretty much over with Verizon. Last night I received a call from them saying I've earned credit for a free upgrade and if I'd like a new phone. I asked if doing such would renew my 2-year contract (which I knew it would) and when the person said yes I told them, "No thanks. I'm planning on getting an iPhone." (end of conversation) It felt good to say that and I just had to share.
