you don't have to wait for your upgrade. You just have to sign a new 2 year agreement and you can get your berry for a new contract price which is lower than retail.

I didn't think I was ready for an upgrade...but apparantly I did qualify for an early upgrade. A new pink blackberry curve only cost me ~$100.

I LOVE it!!!

since you're 1/2 way into your contract, I believe that entitles you to a credit towards a new phone. you should call and ask.

I have Verizon too, I am pretty sure you can get it for the discount price with a new contract.
HOWEVER, I am not sure if the new contract timing is in addition to your current contract or it starts from scratch... ie, if you have 6 months left, and want to get the device with the 2 yr contract pricing, you might end up with 2 yrs & 6 months of your contract.
Definitely call and ask.
I have a curve for work and a pearl for personal use (though my company pays for both), I can't live without it! DH has an iPhone, IMO, once you go Blackberry, you can't go back Chat Icon

Not sure if the BB Curve will work with Verizon as the provider, I have AT&T but I am going to get a different phone in a few weeks. I will not need mine anymore, it's in very good condition if you want I will sell it to you for a very reasonable price. LMK Chat Icon

I think Walmart has a sale right now on the Curve for $8.88 with a new 2 year contract with Verizon.
