    $50 credit? See, the thing i'm hearing from talking to them today is, their pre-order stuff doesn't matter one damn. If you activate your phone after the 28th, they will try to slip you the big red suppository.

    You are hearing wrong.

    You have to renew your plan in order to preorder the phone at the subsidized price. When confirming your order it states that you are providing your "electronic signature" and agree to the new 2 year contract. Therefore, you've already signed a new contract weeks prior to activating your phone.

    Another way to put it:

    You can buy a phone off ebay and activate it without your contract changing.

    So I upgraded to the Maxx in late May because I thought VZW was getting rid of the unlimited plan. I had to exchange it for another one on June 5th because of problems. On my receipt it says I have until June 19th to return or exchange my phone. Can I return my Maxx and pre-order the S3?

    That is a better question to ask Verizon. Call 611.

    Honestly what you're doing is basically like scalping tickets. Seeing as how I have ethical qualms with it, and that you're hijacking this thread, you're not getting an answer.

    I will say this though. You're in the VZW forum. No SIM cards here.

    Wtf u talking about I asked a legitimate question cuz of this new data thing this is my last upgrade before the new plans and I'm doing it so I can afford to buy a phone full retail so i can keep my unlimited data as I don't like samsung phones at all so what's the problem my plan got extended 2 years u think vzw cares what phone i use all they want is that contract extension.. and its vzw 4g it does have a sim card buddy so if u don't know that I'm not sure I want a answer from u anyway! ..

    I don't see anything wrong with buying a phone outright after the 28th and keeping unlimited data.

    And keep this thread in check. No more disrespect.

    Just ship the phone inactivated and the SIM in the pack still. No need to do anything else with it.

    **
    Are you planning on activating it at all before you ship it?

    No.. when I preordered it I was going to keep it but after thinking I'd rather have a htc phone and this seemed like the best way to acquire one! Cuz if I ship it neverbeen activated what date will my contract go into effect? Thanks!
