Reports have been popping up that certain Verizon Wireless customers have been offered free upgrades. These customers are identified as long term Verizon customers. The promotion appears to be quite selective, however.
Customers who are long term subscribers are receiving promotional fliers through the mail. These customers who are close to their upgrade date are given the choice between three devices, the Motorola Droid RAZR, the Galaxy Nexus and the Samsung Stratosphere. Since the initial reports popped up, the deal has been confirmed to be region specific. The only way into the deal is to be invited via the Verizon mailer.
To receive their free device, customers must renew their contract through Verizon Wireless for another two years. The maximum upgrade discount that customers outside the "South Region" can receive is $50 off their device.
