these old eyes are having increasing problems with the "free" Verizon
Qualcomm phone I got 18 months ago. Local store just told me to get a
new phone I would HAVE to sign up for a new 2 year contract.
(unacceptable...I am in month 4 of my second 1 year agreement). All I
want in a new phone I can read more clearly. I am pleased with my
plan as it is at present. So.....if I buy a CDMA phone from perhaps
eBay....Verizon will transfer to it? Or am I SOL.

Thanks,

Skeeter

Yes, if you buy a CDMA phone from anywhere, you can call Verizon or use "my
account" to change equipment. An equipment change for Owner Provide
Equipment, insurance claim, or warranty claim will not change your contract.
You can put the most readable phone onto your line. And by the way: which
phone do you consider to be the most readable, as maybe it will help someone
else as well.

Well, I just bought an unlocked Motorola T730 on eBay ($150). I
scoped out the screen at a VZN store and found the screen large and
bright. Nice size fonts. The V120e was my second choice.


Besides I'm month to month now. Thinking of disconnecting my landline
and incresing my minutes. That would trigger a new contract?

Thanks,

Skeeter

Maybe: If your plan is a "current promotion", you can change your minutes
without penalty (no contract extension). If it isn't current, or you can't
convince someone it is current, then yes, it will reset a contract. But
since your out of contract, you could do that for a 1 yr term... (giving up
the possibility of a future NE2)

However, given that you said you are out of contract, then most likely you
do not have unlimited in-network.

the dr.

As I think outloud: If you use an agent, who does it via POS, then most
likely it will reset your contract no matter what. However, if you call
customer service, ask them to change your minutes, then there is a 50/50
chance that they can do it; AND note your account that your contract period
shouldn't be re-set. Important that they note the account, and you record
the name/extension/time/date of any promises (just in case)

For sure: if your plan is still considered "current" changing your minutes
will not extend anything
For maybe: if your plan isn't current, then you "may" be able to change the
minutes without reset of contract.
