[Because iPhone] Starting Today, All Verizon Customers With Upgrade Eligibility Before 11/15/14 Can Upgrade Now

Update: As confirmed by Verizon, to check your eligibility simply log in to your MyVerizon account and see if your upgrade date has changed - this is supposedly all automatic. If you're not seeing it, give it a couple of days and maybe phone up Verizon to see what the deal is.
