I am eligible for a discounted pricing on a phone upgrade. My contract
expires in November 2008. What I'd like to do is order a no-charge phone
upgrade for the additional 2 year contract but I don't want to activate
the phone. I want to keep the new phone to use as a spare in case my
current phone breaks or is lost/stolen.
I thought I could easily do this but after chatting with a rep they say I
need to call and activate the new phone when I receive it and, more
importantly, accept terms and conditions for the 2 year contract so I
don't get charged full retail for the phone. Sounds like this means I
need to activate the new phone, which would deactivate my current phone.
Then I'd need to change the equipment out again via the old ESN online
via MyAccount. What a hassle.
Is there no easier way?
Why do you feel you need a new phone? My last phone served me well for
about five years, as did the one before that one.
You will pay dearly (one way or another) for every new phone you get. If
you are rich, more power to ya! If not, you will save a bundle by using
your old phone until it falls apart!
So, after two years you could have had a new phone, but waited five years
instead. You could have got a new phone, sold it on Ebay, and kept using
your old one, and been way ahead of the game. As long as you're sticking
with Verizon, it makes no sense not to get a new phone as soon as you're
eligible, unless you are waiting for something in particular that's not
