Upgrade my EnV touch early?

My enV Touch has been acting up. It randomly shuts off and I miss messages. Honestly, I don't want Verizon to fix my phone. I want a new one. Do I even have a chance?

I'm big idiot. After my 2 years expired on my LG chocolate. I immediately wanted a new phone. I got a stupid fuckin feature phone and thought it was so cool until the line of Android phones came along. >.> After about 13 months or so, the phone has become a headache. It will shut off if you apply some force to a few pressure points on the screen. But it does this unintentionally all the time in my pocket. It will then immediately restart and I have to wait like 30 seconds for it to become usable again. I'm pretty sure I miss messages since I ask people the next day why they didn't text me back and they say they did. D:
I've had this phone for 15 months and I've been a customer with Verizon for 3 1/2 years. Do I even have a chance to get a new phone from them if I say the right things? I've thought about throwing the threat of "if you don't give me what I want I'm going to cancel my service and get one of those shinny iphones AT&T has" I would never do that, it would simply be a bluff. Hell, if Verizon just gives me the LG ally. Even though its not the greatest, I would be much happier then with this piece of junk I have right now. Otherwise. The droid incredible appeals to me the most since I can load up custom roms and get USB tethering. :D I wouldn't expect them to just give me a free phone. But if I can simply pay the cost of getting a new phone with a 2 year contract. Thats fine by me. :D
What do you think? Any chance? Or am I required to suffer for another 9 months?
