So I'm kind of confused as to how so many of you seem to be able to get the Lumia 900 at launch? I got my Focus at launch and cant upgrade till July 27! WTF! I need Nokia / M$ to announce the "pay a lil more for the phone early plan" like they did for the iPhone so I don't have to practice being patient. Right now I'm trying to hustle my friends/parents into giving me thier upgrades for cash with no success. Anyone else feel me here?

I paid $500.00 etf to Verizon for the wife's and mine lines. I'm sure that a lot of people are upgrading from their android or iPhone 4 not necessarily from their wp7 , then you have a bunch that like to buy at full retail. You could add a ghost line if you don't want to pay full retail..... There is a lot of options it all depends on how much you are willing to spend
Bought my Surround on launch day for $399 ($499 - $100 Loyalty Discount). Had previously used my upgrade for a second Tilt II in July 2010, that I bought for 0.01 and sold on eBay for $200. So at the end of the day it was close to a wash. My new upgrade was due 4/9/12, but AT&T recently changed their policy and your upgrade kicks on the first day of the month your upgrade is due. Good for me. Pre-ordered my Lumia 900 today.
Ask your local store about an Exception Upgrade. If you have been in contract for at least six months, have no more than 3 non-pay suspensions on your account for the last 12 months, and have $350 to shell out, you can get your Lumia. Any phone exception upgrade is base phone price with new 2 year agreement + $250. If you don't have $350, add a line to your account to get the phone at the discounted price and park the Lumia on your line. Either leave the new line as a ghost line and sell the Focus or give someone your Focus to use on the new number. Or just buy it outright for another $100.
