Hey all, I just wanted to see if anybody else is having issues doing the pre-order? I was able to verify my upgrade status last night and first thing this morning, but now when I attempt to pre-order it says an issue with my account. If i go to Verizon, there isn't any problems at all.

It may very well be overloaded with people trying all at the same time. I did it right away at 7:45 this morning when I got the email. I didn't do it but I loaded everything up to check it out.
Unfortunatly I have only had my S6 since August and was informed I would have to do a payout of $453. I punched in my wifes phone which is up in July and it will work for her. I just have to talk her into getting rid of her iPhone.

I am sorry for my delayed response, and please see my responses to each of you below.
vulsker - I apologize for any issues you were having with your pre-order of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge! Were you eventually able to process your pre-order, or are you still experiencing issues?
Wheels97 - Having your upgrade become available just after launch is quite perfect timing! If you are interested in receiving an S7 or S7 edge as soon as possible at launch, I would definitely encourage you to pre-order one.
ojkwon - Currently, it does not appear that we have the S7 or S7 edge available as an unlocked device. I would encourage you to keep an eye on BestBuy.com for changes in availability though!
jf240 - To my knowledge Verizon is still accepting 2-year contracts. You can check out the current pricing above!

Many carriers are in the process of phasing out 2-year contracts in favor of installment billing plans. With that said, Verizon does still allow us to process 2-year contracts with upgrades or porting in your number from another carrier. However, we are not able to process brand new 2-year contracts with Verizon. I hope this clarifies things a bit for you!
