My girlfriend and I are ATT customers atm, but I am sick and tired of there service(both cell service and customer service). I am trying to convince her to switch to Verizon. I had her convinced until...we found out our early termination fee would be about $350 and there was the nail in the coffin. Between buying our new VW phones(Droid 2 in my case, she was going to get a Droid 2 as well but changed her mind and decided to stick with the iPOS4 ) which would be about $350. Sorry but $700 is to much for our budget in a month. So I am trying to come up with ideas of how to cut costs and get the transition done ASAP.
Option 1: Not sure this would work, but I think we can drop one phone line from our plan at any time with out paying a cancellation fee. Drop it to one phone..give it a few days, and then try to close out the account paying only 1 of the cancellation fees. I would guess they would probably make me pay the whole $350 anyways..
Option 2: Wirefly.com If we sign up for a Verizon plan on here, we get two Droid 2s for free. Problem is she really wants her iPhone 4. So seeing as we didnt buy the phones from a Verizon retail location would she have to buy the phone out right rather then the contract price?
Option 3: Wirefly.com What if we signed up for one Droid 2 through wirefly, then went to the store and added a second line. Would she be able to get the $200/2 year contract price for the iPhone?
On a side note, I formatted her Laptop the other night..we had no choice to make a long story short. She didnt want me to waste time backing up her actual OS/App data. Now she has lost all her iTunes info like play lists and apps if they were not installed on her phone. I tried to show her how the Android Market works and how this wouldnt happen on an Android! She still wont do it, so I am out of ideas on how to convince her. I been an android user(Motorola Backflip using Preclair ROM) so I am not new to android and pretty familiar with the advantages of android, but welcome to ideas to try to convince her!
