At yesterday's event revealing the Droid RAZR M and Droid RAZR HD, Motorola also said that it would offer a $100 trade-in credit to those who bought a Motorola phone in 2011 (or later) that isn't eligible for the update to Jelly Bean.

Verizon confirms Droid RAZR, RAZR Maxx, Droid 4, and HTC Rezound will get global GSM roaming this summer
Verizon says the Droid 4, Droid RAZR, Droid RAZR Maxx and HTC Rezound will all get a software update that enables global GSM roaming this summer.
Following the updates rolling out to RAZR and RAZR Maxx, Verizon will soon issue an update to the Droid 4 that claims to resolve stability and performance problems.
Verizon has just posted a list to its website to help let people know which devices are destined to get Android 4.0. The list includes the HTC ThunderBolt, Incredible 2, Rhyme, and Rezound, as well as the Motorola Droid Xoom, RAZR, RAZR Maxx, Droid 4, Bionic, Xyboard 8.1 and 10.1. The LG Spectrum and both the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and 10.1 appear on the list, too.
Motorla has just updated its large chart detailing its upgrade plans, including specifics on what part of the upgrade process each phone is at and rough availability dates by region. Unfortunately, it looks like there's going to be quite a wait ahead of you, as most of the company's phones still have a long way to go before they get updated.
Verizon to resurrect double data promotion, offer buy-one-get-one-free Droid RAZR or RAZR Maxx on February 10th
Reports are suggesting that earlier rumors that the Droid 4 will launch this weekend are correct, and that Verizon has a host of other offers up its sleeve.
Despite the fact that Verizon's official specs for the HTC Rezound say nothing about GSM capabilities, some posters at xda-developers have spent the last month confirming that the handset does indeed work globally.
The Droid 4 will have a 4-inch, qHD display, 5-row edge-lit physical keyboard, LTE, CDMA, HSDPA, and plenty of other acronyms on board. It looks like it could really give the RAZR a run for its money.
