Even though my online login and my most recent Verizon contract uses my current zip code (we moved 6 years ago), I can't upgrade without using the original zip code (even though I can access my account online with my current zip).
So when you log on to verizonwireless.com, change the current zip code in upper left corner to your original zip code and then click upgrade and you'll see your choices. Hope this helps those of you who still can't access online upgrades.
Thanks, my one line is a different area code then my billing and yes that line wouldn't show me the upgrade, instead it came up with an error message, but I tried what you said and it now works, thanks again!
