Best non-smartphone for Verizon

I went through 2 flip phones from Verizon within the past year and they both broke on me and have bad call quality. Is there a different phone I can buy on like eBay or a 3rd party site that will work with Verizon and is reliable (will last at least 2 years without malfunctioning or degrading in quality) with good call quality?

Verizon Edge availability

Ok...looks like we are going to switch to more everything and use unlimited data...phones are just too darn pricey otherwise.

Question: my wife and I have 2 lines both eligible for upgrade in June.

Are we able to renew our contract, switch to more everything and upgrade with Verizon Edge prior to June? Do we have any options prior to June? Our current phones are not even 2 years old and freeze even after reset....awful.

I tried to chat with Verizon online but was not working

Upgrade/Switch Device

Once upon a time, things were simple. If I chose to upgrade online it was easy. I just logged into My Verizon, ordered a phone and when it arrived, i merely called the phone number and chose option two to accept the contract terms but activate the phone later. It's not so easy these days. I call the activation line and there is no option for activation later. I was given the option to activate the phone on the line I upgraded or another line on my account however. This is really a pain.

Customer Service very lacking

My wife and I, have 20 yrs tenure with VZ, as bought up with a Alltel by up.
We upgraded in Jan of this year to Droid Razr for her and myself. We got a Droid Razr Maxx for her Pops and had started him a line in Dec of last year.
He recently became ill and passed away a little over a month ago. VZ did drop the line without issue when he did, so there is no issue that way.

I issue comes like this. When he became sick, he had given us the Maxx back, but with a broken screen and didnt want the service anylonger. So I sold my Razr, a mistake I wish I could take back. And simply activated the Maxx on my line, it was returned to us with a cracked screen though.
Its a hairline crack, you dont feel it with your finger, ...

More Options for Basic Phones?


I currently have a smart phone on a family plan with Verizon. I want to downgrade to a basic phone because I hardly use my smartphone. I am up for renewal, but I want to know if I can buy basic phones outside of the actual Verizon store and use it for my family plan.

How would I go about doing this? Where can legit basic phones be purchased online and used for Verizon plans? What are someone the best basic phones out there? I need something with reliable talk/text. A good camera would be an optional bonus.

Thank you.

Extended warranty vs Insurance

I know there are several Verizon employees on this forum, so I'm hoping one of you can explain something to me. Here's the situation:
My son's phone is an iphone 4S. For whatever reason, it has decided that it will no longer charge (tried everything). I have been paying for the insurance as well as the extended warranty. I just called Verizon to see what we need to do and this is basically what I was told.
If the phone failed because of damage (like water) then it will be something like $169 deductable for a replacement phone. If it failed because of faulty equipment, it would be a free replacement thru warranty. Ok..fair enough. BUT, here's the part I don't get. He said that if we submit it as a warranty claim, but they determi...

Verizon or Sprint

Hey everyone. Just a quick question. I have had Verizon for over 10 years now, and my wife is considering switching to Sprint. She switched jobs and her company phone/personal phone will be disconnected at the end of May. We are thinking of getting a shared unlimited plan with Sprint. I have a Verizon plan that has unlimited data on it, but as most VZW customers know they no longer offer unlimited data plans. If I upgrade any part of my plan I lose unlimited data. That is a huge deal to me since I average 4.0 GB per month data. To purchase that data plan per month from VZW is highway robbery!!!! So I ask is it worth switching? I am happy with Verizon, but if I ever do want to upgrade my VZW phone I have to purchase it full retail or eBay it ...
