    Alltel plan to Verizon for the Droid

    I have an old Alltel plan that won't be up for quite a while. I've gotten conflicting info, but some people have told me that I can switch to a Verizon plan now, and get the new customer discount and get the deal on the Droid. I'm really hoping this is the case, because I don't want to be stuck with this piece of garbage Pearl for another 6 months.

    Anyone have the answer?

    Yeah the agency I work for used to be an all altel agency. Once we switched over, they still say we aren't "Real" verizon customers because we don't hold a "true" signed contract with verizon, and when replacing equipment they told us the could only send us the altel equipment. I was floored by this, very very strange.
    Resistance is futile.

    So, if I'm not a "real" Verizon customer right now, wouldn't they want me to sign one of their contracts?

    You would think. I know we have been able to on certain things to upgrade and still get the discount that we haven't had the 10 months verizon requires for an annual upgrade. I would call up your local VZW store tomorrow and as the customer service reps before you go grab the phone and they are like that will be 700 dollars plz.

    I can confirm they will let you upgrade. I was an Alltel customer that wasn't due for an upgrade until next July. I asked if I could upgrade now and they said no problem. I waited on the phone while a CSR updated my account.

    November '08. It was kinda funny because there was a lengthy thread over on fatwallet about how Alltel customers could get out of the new Verizon contract. Turns out all I had to due was ask and it was done in 5 min. Sounds like they really want the Alltel plans to go away.

    Well in your case it may not make a good test case because, after 10 months into a contract on verizon you are eligible for an annual upgrade, which allows you to purchase another phone at the subsidized price that a new user would get.

    Isn't the annual upgrade for VIP customers only? I asked if the Alltel customers were available for immediate VIP status so I could upgrade this month and she told me that were letting all Alltel customers upgrade regardless of their contract date. I did have to call back the next day because myverizon didn't update and talked to a different person and was told the same thing. So I'm thinking I didn't just get lucky... or I got lucky twice.

    Which could be, was merely saying what happened with us. They could very well just want to do away with as many altell contracts as possible.
