So how do you get a normal upgrade for a penny. Penny price is for a new line of service. Upgrade is $49.99??
I go to Amazon.com, and I type "motorola moto x" in the search bar, then I click on the one that says: "Motorola Moto X Black (Verizon Wireless). It says "$0.01 with contract", but so do the AT&T and Sprint versions.
Then I pick a plan, in my case "Family", then I select "I have a Verizon Wireless account and want to upgrade my current device to this one." When I click Add to Cart it opens a new window that asks for the number of the phone I want to upgrade, as well as some billing information. Then it tells me that I'm eligible. It then asks for options such as changing your plan or phone coverage, but you don't really need to change anything as you have to do that when you activate the phone through Verizon anyway.
