So, I was poking around and also thought that the "upgrade after seven months" seemed fishy, but it is an option for me too, and I am only six months into my contract. It sounds like this is normal with some phones, since others here aren't surprised at the option, but since some people (like us) haven't heard of this before, I thought I'd explain how I found it.
All I had to do was log into my account, choose my phone (I have a family plan, but both my and my wife's phones were eligible) and click "Upgrade Selected Lines" where phones are listed for full price. At the very bottom, however, is the Note, listed at $299.99, looking for all the world as if it's nothing strange. I'll also add that the upgrade page allows me to keep my $25/2GB plan--of course the current one is the old fauxG plan that is incompatible, but the $25/2GB for LTE is an option in the upgrade.
Now the only problem is, do I blow the $300 to get a sexy, sexy Note... :/
