so ok, anyone else here planning to buy full price off contract with Verizon?
I just went and set myself up online so I could get the pre-order, which is apparently going to happen at 12:00am on 4/4, so I wanted to give it a shot. It's not letting me buy ANY off contract phone without adjusting my plan, which is utter BS.
My plan is an unlimited data plan, hence why I'm buying full retail.
Despite still having a few months left on my Verizon contract, I have purchased a Nexus 4 and plan on sticking my Droid Charge in a closet somewhere ASAP. The Charge was an OK phone but it's definitely showing it's age nowadays, being completely infuriatingly slow when web browsing and doing...
My contract with Verizon is up and I'm allowed to get a discounted phone. However, I don't want to change my plan (I have an unlimited data plan). Is there any way to get an upgrade on a phone and NOT have to pay the full price of about ~$550 for a new phone?
And what would you guys recommend for a new phone? I am using a Thunderbolt now, and like high-end phones.
Is anyone else sticking with their Bionic because you're grandfathered into Verizon's unlimited? I went to Costco and just inquired about upgrading, and he mentioned that sooner rather than later Verizon will force us off the unlimited anyway. He mentioned something about a 6 GB plan that won't cost me any more to switch to. I only typically use 5-6 GB anyway.
I'm a Verizon customer, currently using a 3-year old Droid RAZR. I have a grandfathered 4Gb data plan for $69 that it makes sense for me to keep, and Verizon's coverage is the best here in NJ, so I'm considering sticking with Verizon and upgrading to the Note 4.
But using Verizon has meant living with locked bootloaders; having to use SafeStrap in order to flash ROMs; fewer ROM developers vs.
I've posted my thoughts in a few threads but figured I'd start my own. Right now I have three lines on Verizon with two unlimited and one on a 2GB plan. In total we typically use around 6GB's a month with me using 5 and my wife 1 or less. The no upgrading without changing plans is finally getting to us. We simply can't afford $700+ for a phone, no less two.
