Nothing like a late day ninja check-in. A trusted source has come through with a Verizon memo outlining an early upgrade program for those users looking to upgrade from a feature phone to a smartphone a bit early. Our source indicates this promotion is for Sam’s Club and Target kiosks and is only available in certain locations… but hey, an early upgrade is an early upgrade. The move is aimed to rope feature phone users into a more luxurious, and expensive, smartphone with the accompanying data plan, but that doesn’t mean those ready to upgrade can’t take advantage. Terms of the deal include:

  • Available in Northern California Region, Central Texas, Upstate New York, and Ohio/Pennsylvania
  • User can not already have a 3G smartphone
  • User will not be eligible for another upgrade for 12 months
  • Customers can’t already be eligible for a standard upgrade
  • Can’t be combined with other offers
  • $29.99+ data plan required
  • New 2-year contract must be signed
