I'm not sure if this should go somewhere else or here. I'm still new, and this is a pretty noob question so I feel like it is appropriate here. If I am mistaken please feel free to move it or lock it.
My existing Verizon plan comes due for upgrade eligibility on the 30th of this month and my decision is set in stone that I'm going to be upgrading to a droid. Where it gets tricky is that my current phone is just an LG chocolate and not a smart phone, and I am currently the second line on a multi-line plan. We would like to keep it that way as it is obviously a better deal financially.
Does anyone have any experience with upgrading an existing plan with a phone bought somewhere else, such as at a WalMart, Best buy, or Amazon? I've seen the offers from these places for droids at very cheap prices (sometimes with a rebate involved) with an upgrade or renewal. Based on my browsing of this forum it seems like it would be almost insane to pay the full price for a phone w/ plan that Verizon charges.
Does anyone have any advice or info on how to go about this? Like, what kind of info do I need to have with me and is there anything that might prevent me from upgrading in this manner? Also, what if I bought a new droid without a contract, and then had verizon change my phone and plan over to it? I know some of these may be questions for the actual salesperson but I've been around long enough to know you can't trust any salesperson without being armed with the correct info yourself to back up what they tell you.
