I'm being stalked by Verizon
Hmmmm.... could it be that they are trying to get me off my unlimited data plan? NEVER!!!!!
While the text did not advise I would lose my unlimited data if I upgraded I was really impressed they let me know about the $30 upgrade fee. But alas, none of it will happen. I am not a data hog but I take comfort in unlimited.....
When you go to Best Buy, the upgrade fee will be applied to your next bill.
The only way to avoid it is to buy a phone full retail if you are on a consumer account.
Business accounts with 5 or more lines with a signed major account agreement have the fees waived.
If you go to a corporate store there is no way it will be waived and they will not do anything to offset the cost. There is so much pressure to not discount things from upper management it is crazy.
