Default Blackberry Storm???

Please Login to Remove!

Well looks like I wont get a Blackberry Storm for Christmas this year, Unless I want to pay $600 for one. Apparently Im not due for an upgrade until March, therefor we have to pay full price.
they sure don't tell you that in the ads. They pump up this new phone and throw it in everyones face, then when you go to get one, oops! Forgot to mention you they cost $600. unless you are elligble to upgrade.
What a load of kaka.

All I have seen the price is pretty well advertised.

And this is not the Verizon forums if you want to trash their forum up with your dirty mouth.

Here is the vital information Verizon has suppressed from you:

Calling Features: New Every Two®

Also when you log into your account there is a green bar that shows you how close to an upgrade you are.

The most anyone should ever pay is $370. If you've had your current contract for 31 days, you can pay the Early Termination Fee of $175 - $5/month that you've had your contract = $170. Plus, $200 (after rebate) for a new Storm with a new 2-yr contract.
