I completely forgot about Best Buy. They finally got around to do amazon price matching.Originally Posted by 06M6TorridGTO
I spent a fair amount of time checking into this tonight. I was worried about losing unlimited data too. No way I'm adding $100 bucks in fees to match current data. I spoke with several reps at both verizon and amazon. All came back with the same story. Transfer upgrade to line other than unlimited data then activate phone. Once activated switch phone onto unlimited line. Done. My extra line is ultra basic and it's so old its grandfathered for everything. I will never lose that line or my unlimited plan! I added a tiered data pkg to basic line and will reduce plan back to basic at no fee.
Amazon specifically said that the phone has to stay active on the account for 120 days. It can shift between lines and not result in the fee. verizon has no way to prevent it.
$175 amazon shipped. no tax. free activation (grandfathered). A little hassle to make the swap. dope phone.
I would double check that. Amazons policy specifically states 181 days on the same line. I talked to someone on the phone that said the same thing. 181 days on that line. No swapping. I think the person who told you that is wrong. Go to best buy and they should price match to the $179
