I dropped my Droid in water this morning and am fairly certain it's fried (though I am trying the rice trick right now). My mom and I are on a Verizon plan that's tied together ("family plan"). She is eligible for a 2yr contract renewal upgrade, and therefore can purchase a Droid for $100. I am not and will not be for another 14 months, and therefore it would be full price for me.
So, what I am looking to do is have my mom upgrade to a Droid, switch numbers with me, and she can activate a simple flip phone to the number my Droid used to be on (she has no desire for a smartphone or anything). My only question is - since I agreed to a 2yr contract with Droid, do I have to continue to pay for the same amount of texts, minutes, data plan, etc. as I did with the Droid, even though it's now only a flip phone? Would I essentially have to pay for 2 Droid plans? Or can I lower the plan on my old number (my mom's new number) to less minutes and texts than I had on Droid?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
