Someone explain my phone upgrade eligibility to me (Sprint).

Alright, so - I have a Palm Pre, my mother has an LG Rumor 2. We both got our phones last December and we're both ready for new ones. We are on the same contract, and her line is the primary line on the account.
When I check up upgrade eligibility, it tells me that I get "$150 with a two-year subscriber agreement (or $75 with a one-year agreement)" as of December 1. So, my first question - does "with a two-year subscriber agreement" mean that I need to sign on for another two years in order to get my full upgrade? I plan on jumping ship after this year, so that's unfortunate if so.
On the other hand, they're not offering my mother her full upgrade until next October. Is there any reason why our upgrades would be at different times? Both of us have had our phones replaced during the last year due to defects, so I can't imagine why we'd have different upgrade dates.
