contract question

I got four phones on my current plan. One of the phones is up for a upgrade. Verizon is supposedly going to be here the first of July. If I wait and get a phone then will it affect my current contract? Local rep said he did not know the answer. Thanks for your help.

Getting out of contract

Hi. I'm on a family plan with Alltel. I want to switch to ATT (iPhone), however, two of the four accounts are under contract. Is there anyway to get out of the contract without an early termination fee? Perhaps some loophole with the Verizon-Alltel merger, claiming that this is a breech in the terms of the contract. If getting out of contract is impossible without early termination, how is the new Motorola Evoke. I saw a couple of bad things about it on the forums but nothing specific about why it wasn't liked. Thanks in advance for the help.

I am going to Toledo to help with the VZW conversion. Where is the call center located at and what is there to do in Toledo? I know it is a decent sized city but I will be there for 2 weeks and would like to have something to do (and drink). Any recommendations?

Last signup for Alltel?

I just read the Verizon Wireless Integration FAQ on the Alltel website but it didn't give any approximate dates.

Which Alltel phone should I chose??!?

I just opened a new account with Alltel yesterday. I had a hard time chosing the right phone, but picked the BB Curve and like it a lot. But, I like the looks of the new Motorola Evoke, but hey still haven't received them yet in the store I went to. I'm thinking seriously about taking my BB to another store and if they have it, exchange it here. But, I know this is stupid, but I like the looks of the Banter as well. I don't like any phone with Windows Mobile, so that's out of the question. But phones in the $200 range, what would you pick?

Teenager Out of Control

Hey folks...
I could use some direction. I have a 16 y/o son who went way over on his minutes and texts causing a large bill. I took his phone, put in a lock code and restricted his calls to only his phone book, so he can stay in touch with imediate family for emergencies. Within 4 hours he figured out how to add an additional number to an existing contact and therefore could call whomever he wanted. We I confronted him on this he showed me how he could also reset the phone and erase the lock code giving himself access to call anyone he wanted. I am hoping there is a software / website that I could set up an account with that will restrict him through the cellular service provider rather than through the phone.
Any recomendations would be ...
