This is mainly for people who know Verizon inside alot more than the average user. So What I am looking to do is this....My roomate is currently on ATT but is sick of coverage and also paying for a smart phone (he has iphone) So what he might do is drop ATT in dec when his plan is over and come to verizon. He doesnt want any special phone so I am going to have him get the droid and give it to me So heres the Questions... Is there a way for him to "buy" the phone but not have them activate it at all so that when I take it in its activated directly to me? If so can they only turn on the device but not configure even the slightest thing? I dont want to link anything to it, no face book, no email conatcts, Nothing. Is there anything else I should know going in? What will they need? Is there anything Special coming up to help ease the cost of this? Im going to have to buy the phone + Get a phone for the roomie to replace it. I may be able to give him my phone but he might want a different one.
