Unlocked Apple iPhone

I read that Apple is now selling an unlocked iPhone 5. Previously, I read that all iPhone 5s working on the Verizon network are unlocked. What, if anything, is the difference between the new unlocked iPhones and the regular iPhones working on the Verizon network purchased with a Verizon contract, other than the contract and price?

Question about transferring upgrade eligibility

I have a family plan with two lines. The primary line is eligible for a discounted upgrade at the end of December while the secondary line is already eligible. I plan to transfer the eligibility from the second line to the primary so I can upgrade now. My question is what happens to the upgrade discount on the primary line? Does it transfer to the second line? Also, might the NE2 discount still exist on the primary line, and if so is there a way to find out online? TIA

Corporate stores don't know about new phone releases?

I went to a couple of corporate stores today wanting to confirm they would have the Droid DNA on the 21st (it's official release date) and neither one knew anything about it. They just said if the phone was released they would "most likely" have them. One manager added they don't know about releases until 24 hours beforehand. So I'm wondering how can this be? I thought the stores trained up their people on new phones days in advance so they were ready to demonstrate them. It doesn't make any sense.

Need a new Verizon compatible phone, suggestions?

My Droid X is slowly dying and I need to get a new smart phone that will work with Verizon. I don't want to do another 2 year contract with Verizon though.. What are my options for a good 4G smartphone that won't break the bank? Some of these chinese phones look pretty slick but I doubt I could just buy one and use it right, like this one: ... »

Sony Smart Watch

Not really a VZW product, but is advertised on their site. Not spam, copypasta from android forum because Im trying to get a response in time for christmas. Thanks in advance. » ยป

Anyone else heard of/ seen this? Seems like it might be okay. The reviews on Verizon are 50/50. I dont trust the reviews on there anyway. Any input on this product? THink it might be a decent christmas gift, but I dont want to give someone crap.

Looking to Switch??

My company has come to the end of our Sprint contract and we are not sure if we want to stay. We are looking at VZ mostly due to equipment pricing. How is their customer service? Do you get the runaround when trying to get a phone repaired? How is their billing, accurate or always needing corrections? We understand that every carrier will have problems, but the sales people give you fantasy answers and I am looking for reality to make our decision. Anyone have any major negative experiences with VZ?
What are the positives about VZ and what are the negatives about VZ?

I am at the point of upgrading - however I cannot decide between the two phone; Galaxy III and the RAZR MAXX HD. They both appeal to me and here is the positives that I have heard about the RAZR:

1) The antenna is way better on the RAZR - fair better than the III.

(This is the selling point at this point - there is nothing more fustrating then having no signal.)

2) The battery life on the RAZR is far supreme.

(Which is expected as this is the selling point to this phone).

I am being told that nothing can compare to Motorola's antennas - which makes sense as they are big in the communication business. (LE, Fire, etc)

Soooooo - what I am wanting to ask everyone - is the antenna that much better?

Buying A Phone Outright

Can I still keep my Unlimted Data if I buy a phone outright like say thru Amazon Wireless?

I just figured that once I add a new phone to my account it will automatically make me choose a new shared data plan?

New phone new carrier!! HELP!!!!!

So in two weeks my contract is up with Tmobile. I didn't really like the coverage very much. My device is crap too. I had the G2 which was a pretty good phone until it ended up in a cup of water. They sent me a myTouch slide, AND I HATE IT!!! I used to have at&t for like 8 years and really liked it but it was a little pricey. Before that I had sprint back in the roaming days and it did all the time. I was thinking about switching to verizon and getting and Iphone, but the salesperson at Verizon was telling me about the GalaxyIII so now I'm torn.. Any feedback would be great. I don't use my phone for work or load movies , pretty much just the basics, text, calls, internet ya know..
