    How do I switch phones, Im on a family plan with verizon and see that amazon is now selling the GS3 for 99 bucks – I think i have about a year left on my 2 year contract but really dislike my charge and i want to swap it asap. How does it work? Do I just buy off Amazon? – Ive never done it before so unsure of the process, will i get additional charges? – thanks!

    The 99$ price is with a 2 year activation or upgrade... you could call vzw and ask for an early upgrade.. but if you're on an unlimited plan, after you upgrade at a subsidized price, you'll be slammed into a tiered data plan.

    You could add a line, which would be tiered.. get the 2 gig plan... use the s3 on your current unlimited plan and put your current device on the new line...
