Is there anyway to do the early upgrade program without participating in the buy back program?

Hi

I have a blackberry bold 9930 and am looking to make the switch to an iphone.  I have until June 2013 until I am upgrade eligible.  I would be interested in doing the early upgrade program to get into an iphone, but I want to keep my blackberry as a spare backup and not trade it in.  I have been told different things regarding the early upgrade program and having to turn my existing phone in.  I have heard from in store reps that I have to trade in my phone, I have heard through sprint chat that I didn't have to trade in my phone.  Does anyone have any experience with this or have an ability to provide a definative answer?

Thanks,


Andrew

Certain accounts are eligible for what we call an Upgrade Now program. I can check your account to see if you qualify.

Hi, I also have the same question. I have an "upgrade now" option, I am willing to pay the upgrade now fee, but I don't want to trade my existing phone in. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Plan doesn't expire until 3/1/13, what are the requirements for having this "special account" that will allow you to participate in the "Upgrade now" program?

Hello clewia, there isn't a set formula that I can say will qualify users for an early upgrade, but I am glad to look over your account if you will send me a private message. Thank you, Chris.
