**exception..if you suspend a line for any ammount of time WITHOUT billing, that line's contract will extend for the ammount of time it was suspended. (example. 2yr contract, supposed to end jan 1st, was suspended for 5 days without being billed, will now end on jan 6th.)
*also, if your upgrade date did change when you did a feature change, or did a manufactures warranty, the rep who processed the change did it wrong. have them correct it, and dont take "no" for an answer.
***the only price changes for plans are the unlimited plans currently. the names of all the plans have changed, as verizon has also done away with the "connect" and "premium" plans, and now only offer the basic and select plans, altho, they have changed the names to "talk" and "talk and text" to simplify. you can still get the features of the "connect" and "premium" plans, although it is now done thru "feature" additions.
****EXCAPTION***if you are on an older plan, like the "americas choice", even if you are on a "qualifying plan", you do not get F&F. only the newer "nationwide" plans qualify. there is NO drawback for switching from amchoice to ntnwide, no cost difference, and (as stated above) no change made to your contract date.
no, unlimited data, and unlimited texting are differend, and you do need to pay for both services if you want both.
and, as stated above, your parents' price wont change either.
*****BEWARE******there are "special" plans out there that you might be offered (example, verizon offers "blackberry plans" that include smartphone plan, txting if you want it, minuts, the works. but for that convenience...you pay $10 bucks more a month than if you just got a regular plan and added all of the same features.
**AND! FYI, when you add a smartphone to your plan, it AUTOMATICLY puts you on the $44.99 per month feature, unless you request the $30 per month feature. and i would venture to guess, that unless you folks have a vested intrest in looking at your bill each month, or had a rep who gave a darn when you set up service, that you are probably paying the more expensive one.
**to answer your question, 450 is lowest, $5 for text is good if, in a months time, you only send and recieve a total of 250 texts or less,
and you shuld PROBABLY be on the $30 data plan.
