How long has your GF been on her current plan?
If she has been with her current phone at least 12 months, Verizon will allow her to upgrade to a 8330 for the $219.99 price. Generally, they will not honor any 24 months discounts or the $50 data rebate (that the $50 rebate shown on the website) if the customer has not been on the current plan for 12 months.
If the customer service rep is refusing to upgrade her, ask to speak to a manager. If that still doesnt work, write a letter. I did, and now have a contact in the President's office, who I can call and will take care of any little problem I may have. (She is the sole reason that I will stay with VZ also....)
Not to jack your thread but I am in the similar boat. I have two more months until my upgrade is available and I want to get the 8330 curve from verizon. So when I go to the store to ask for a new phone how to I convince them to give me the $219.00 price that you said you are getting, if I want it now?
Just talk to the people in the store and ask them for the phone. Then when they tell you the price, just talk them through it. Let them know that you see it online for $179 and if that does not work, let them know that you don't mind extending your contract if needed.
