Another Idea

Okay. Maybe you don't have any friends that stupid. (Nothing to be ashamed of). I was just thinking of another possibility. Let's say you have a relative who is on Verizon who is extremely happy with their phone. Maybe a grandparent or parent. They may be eligible to upgrade but have no intention of doing so... Well, put on the charm young one. Ask them if perhaps YOU can have that upgrade. So...assuming you succeed in sucker---I mean convincing your relative into doing this... The next step is to process an upgrade on their line of service. I recommend doing so via My Verizon although Telesales would work as well. Personally, I detest actually speaking to Verizon reps unless I am just calling to waste time intentionally. Anyway... Once you process the upgrade and receive the handset do NOT activate the phone on the relative's line. Instead call 8778074646 and accept the contract terms and conditions. You will be given the option of 1 to activate the new phone now or 2 to activate the phone later (never). Choose 2 of course. Your relative's service is never affected and you have a free and clear phone at contract price. Hopefully your relative will not get the itch for a new phone in the next two years or damage or lose their phone. But're looking good. Why worry about all that?
