    Tachyon is a Neo ROM and for some reason he does something to his roms that doesn't agree with my phone....Ive always had issues with his roms....which is unfortunate because when they are working they're great. Basically after some time my phone will get sluggish and I will reboot into a freeze at the lock screen....once that happens I have no other recourse but the to a total wipe and reflash. Its totally random too....so I had to stop using him roms.

    That could be an options I suppose, thats definitely one Ive never been offered.

    I was offered that last week actually at the store..but as I said before 2 gigs isnt enough....

    Apparently the stores can so some sort of payment plan...like the device replacement plan but its just for a new phone..not because you "broke" your old one. Its the device payment plan. I went to the store and it took a little asking but I finally got them to tell me about it, after she figured out I was on unlimited. I need to look into it more so I can see if there are any loopholes they can get me with but thats the way Im leaning. Id almost rather pay and extra 50 bucks a month and have basically a no contact phone afterwards then extend my contract.

    Yeah, you won't be "offered" the Max plan, you have to ask for it by name. (And keep in mind that this is NOT the Edge plan. Max is a traditional, 2year plan with subsidized phone).

    It used to be that you had to call and talk to a phone rep because salespeople in Verizon stores either didn't know about it, or weren't authorized to offer it. But I've now seen people who say they were able to sign up for the Max plan in a corporate Verizon store (but never in a third party retailer).

    I never go to third party retailers anyway..they all use pushy sales tatics. Its amazing the difference you see going into a corporate store vs an authorized retailer. Corporate they all have real phones and are nice answer question and will let you browse. authorized retailers there is someone on you as soon as you want though the door asking 20 questions.....what kind of phone do you have, whens your upgrade....you getting a phone today....and they all have dummy phones...avoid like the plague....

    I offer it to EVERY customer that comes to me with unlimited data, and I am a manager of a third party location (Costco)

    Please don't generalize all third party retailers until you have experienced EVERY one of them and every employee in them. At my kiosk, I pride myself on NOT being the pushy type, along with all 3 of my employees. That is actually how we get most of our sales, because we aren't like the others out there.
    We also have live devices...not every phone is live like corporate stores, but just the most popular ones (for example, the G2, S4, S3, and Note 3).
    I used to feel the same as you, I refused to go anywhere except corporate locations because I had a few bad experiences being hawked when I was working in a mall in Ohio. Never again will I rely on corporate :)

    No problem, happy to help. Unfortunately not all employees operate like I do.

    I believe so.....from what Ive read on the internet....Just look up the device payment plan.

    Well I've experienced enough to have formed an opinion about them and to avoid them..however I will say this the kiosks in places like Best Buy and Costco, though I don't have a card, are fine too. They don't use the same tactics as the other third party stores. When I generalize its the wireless city's or wireless plus type of stores...the ones that have the big Verizon logo in them then under in small print say authorized agent or retailer....

    I was at Verizon corporate store last night checking out the new M8. I casually asked about the 6 gig max plan and was told that it would last for one year, and then would fall back to a 2 gig plan. Anyone else heard that? Or was he just clueless?
