    The price that a new customer pays is subsidized by Verizon. They recoup
    their initial loss over the period of your contract. You can't expect them
    to take another loss after only 6 months.

    Good advice. I'll go down tomorrow and inquire about mine. I have a crack
    in the front glass of my 4400. If I could get it fixed, or repaired
    cheaply, I would. Otherwise I'd just live with it until my new every 2
    comes up.... December..
