    QUOTE

    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.[/QUOTE]

    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?

    I have heard nothing of the sort. I'll ask my Verizon reps though.

    At a MINIMUM it's 2 years, because I signed a new 2 year contract. Who knows after that - but at least I have a guarantee for the next 2 years. If you're on a month to month, no one can promise you what will happen more than 30 days out, because that's all the notice they're legally required to give (hence the term "month to month"!)

    Looks like I just missed out on the "best buy loophole" to keep unlimited... but I'm willing to go to the 6gb plan if I can do it without Edge. Unlimited talk/text and 6gb for the same price I'm paying now is acceptable, but that's the only way I'm doing it.

    I will go to my local Costco tomorrow and see if that deal can be swung with a S5 preorder.

    Pre-order is online only, and you more than likely will not be offered the 6gb Max plan online. Also, it is not unlimited talk and text unless you go to the More Everything 6gb plan.

    Well I'm switching to t-mobile. $80 (plan) plus $27/mo (phone payment) for unlimited everything and the S5. That's only about $12 more than my Verizon bill currently, and the $27 goes away if I pay off the phone.

    No subsidized price but also no $200 immediately going to Verizon.
