    using upgrade while grandfathered

    Hey if i have an upgrade and let my Mon use it on her line to get the RAZR M so i can have it; would that renew HERS or MY contract?I CANNOT renew my contact because i need to keep my grandfathered unlimited data.
    I can't use the upgrade ago can't my mom just upgrade and get the phone & renew her contract? I do they renew my contract and simply give her the new phone?

    If you get a good rep they can do the upgrade and only the line that takes it will lose unlimited. If you have a rep not interested in working with you then you're screwed

    If your mom takes the upgrade, her line gets renewed, not yours. But after the transaction is done, I believe you could switch phones with her and everything should be fine.

    As long as you're not taking the upgrade initially, you don't lose your unlimited plan. Just get it activated for her line first (doesn't matter whose upgrade it is) and then transfer the phone to your line. Just make sure you have a SIM card you can use for your line. You can get one for free from a VZW Direct store.

    If the upgrade used is from her line, her contract gets extended. If it's from your line, your contract gets extended. If you're not concerned about disconnecting from Verizon then it shouldn't matter whose contract gets extended. If you're mom ever wanted a new phone, she can just use the upgrade from any line that has one available.

    I talked to Verizon and they said regardless of who uses my upgrade, its MY contract that gets renewed so there's no way to use it. He also recommended that I do everything i can to keep my unlimited data because that's the most he's Ebert seen anyone use in a month lol

    Your contract, yes. Do you care about contract length? If your only concern is not losing unlimited data, then don't upgrade from your phone number initially. Do the upgrade on your mom's line and then transfer the phone. I feel like I explained this already. Once it's upgraded on your mom's line and then you want to transfer it to your line, it's considered customer provided equipment and you can't lose your unlimited data unless you get a rep who doesn't know what they're doing.

    I'm not confused. I was a Verizon rep and also used this work around to get my galaxy s3 and kept my unlimited data. I was just offering you insight, thank you very much..

    You said do whatever you can to not lose your unlimited data, I was telling you how now to lose it. If you don't appreciate it, then don't do it. Don't tell me I'm confused when I know exactly how it works.

    In theory u r correct but they said there is no way do what you are saying ( to use my upgrade to upgrade my moms line). If my upgrade its used, my line is is re- contracted, period.
    You're saying i can renew my contract for another 2 years without upgrading KY data plan- but that's the problem- when you renew your contract, you have to use one of their tiered data contracts...
    That's what they told me over the phone. I talked to tech support and a Verizon employee
