Ordering Verizon upgrade phone from Costco or Amazon...

jordanz12 735 120 August 20, 2015 at 02:37 PM
I'm on the old nationwide talk 700 plan and want to make sure I keep the plan since it's cheaper. I have 6GB data and she has 2GB data. My wife is due for a phone upgrade. Looking at either the Samsung S5, Droid Turbo, or LG G3 (maybe G4 too since it would be $50 after mail in rebate). She's coming from a Samsung S3, so this will be a big upgrade for her.

If I order the phone upgrade online or at Costco, will it still keep our existing plan? Never ordered from Costco before so thought I'd check. Phones are way cheaper at Costco than at Verizon.

Also, when looking at phones to order at Amazon wireless, there's no option to "upgrade phone on current line". There's only options to add a new line to existing plan, or start a new plan. Does that mean you can't order a phone upgrade and keep your plan at Amazon? Thanks!

i know you're not trying to preserve a UDP but it's a similar principle so i suspect that there are people in this thread who may be able to help: http://slickdeals.net/f/7743625-verizon-how-to-use-a-subsidized-upgrade-and-keep-your-unlimited-data-plan-or-avoid-a-2-year-data-plan-on-a-nationwide-basic-line?v=1

good luck!

I don't think any of our data plans would change since we don't have unlimited. I thought that we could easily keep our data plans when upgrading, but just wanted to double check...since all these new plans came out.

And also cut your network coverage in half! Sprint doesn't work for the majority of the areas I'm around.

Exactly. Sprint is a good option only when you are in coverage. Verizon Wireless is still the best. Smartel has red plan, I think it run under Verizon Wireless network. You check if it works for you.
