I'm very close to pulling the trigger on a Verizon phone, but have a question. I was planning on getting the phone through Amazon wireless (they seem to have overall cheaper prices on phones) with a new 2 year contract. I don't presently have a contract with any carrier.
Now, I work for a company that is included in the employee discount program with VZW. Can I order my phone through Amazon, and then still get my discount by calling VZW or something once my contract is set up?
I've run across a question recently and figured someone here could answer it for me. I have 3 lines on my account with verizon. On two of them I've noticed in the last couple months I'm getting charged 9.99 for 1 "premium messaging" under data. I dont even know what that is. Is there any way to get that off and save me the $20 a month?
You can get a corporate discount, because they discount the account, not the phone. That said, I would STRONGLY recommend ponying up the extra cash and buying from a VZW corporate store. Anything goes wrong, you will get immediate help. If they can't fix an issue, they will replace there at the store. Just like the network service, you get what you pay for with in-store purchase. VZW does try to monetize EVERYTHING, but they do reinvest it in their network and customer support.
That's a big suck. If they do away with my unlimited data, I'll give my love to Sprint.
As for replacements, Verizon still has to honor your warranty, even if you purchase somewhere else.
I got my PRO from Amazon and did a warranty exchange through VZW with no problems at all.
Actually they don't have to honor their warranty if you purchase the phone somewhere else...you have to go to the store where you purchased the phone...yes I used to work for a verizon call center customer service on the phone.
