Get 50% off Droid Turbo. One day only!
Possible Additional $200 VISA Gift Card (YMMV):
Comcast is offering a $200 VISA gift card if you order Verizon DPP through them. Check the link here:
According to some SDers, you don't need to be a Comcast customer to receive a gift card!
Be warned that you cannot do a trade-in if you order through the Xfinity portal, so you need to depend on getting a trade-in code texted to you after you receive your device. This may or may not happen, so YMMV until someone confirms this.
TL;DR: There is a possibility that you may never get the $300 TIV if you go this route.
Always keep in mind that you cannot believe a word any verizon rep tells you and verizon will NOT honor promises made by their reps.
Use discount code VZWDEAL or VZWPROMO to take another $50 off your phone. Not sure what all phones, but VZWDEAL did work on porting in my fiance's Sprint number with the S6 ($576 - $200 Black Friday deal, no code - $50 discount). My order got canceled because I used the VZWPROMO and their system could not read the code. Got an email asking to call their Credit Department. The person on the credit department had to rebuild the order again with the promo code.
*NOTE NEW T&C when attempting to submit a trade-in Online*
"If you received promo value when trading in a device and/or instant device savings, you will be charged for that value if you do not maintain active service for three billing cycles, unless you return the device within 14 days."
(See attached image for screenshot of full terms)
none of these phones play perfectly nice on TMobile FYI. Droid Turbo 2, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, or S6.
Note that the Samsung $300 Accessories Promo would only be valid if you're paying full retail price for the Samsung, which you aren't with the Verizon Black Friday discount.

How can I make this deal sweeter?
Two things you can try: first, use coupon code VZWDEAL or VZWPROMO for an additional $50 off (works only on some devices, not all). Second, use a cash back site such as eB@tes or TopC@shBack when you order to receive additional cash back on your order.
Additionally, try signing up for new lines via the Xfinity link here: http://www.xfinity.com/verizon-wireless.html This gets you a $200 Visa GC (per line) in lieu of the $50 promo codes and e-cashback offers. This also means you cannot complete the trade-in for $300 until the new phones are in hand and activated and so far no one has been able to confirm receipt of codes that unlock the $300 trade in value. So we have to call this YMMV for now.
Can I apply the $300 trade-in credit towards device purchase?
You can only do that if you do the transaction in-store. If you purchase online, you will either get a gift card or account credit for $300. Read the next question to see if you can use this for paying off the device.
Can I use the $300 trade-in e-GiftCard or account credit to pay for the device?
You cannot use account credit to pay off device balances (unless you close your account, see next question). You can use the $300 eGiftCard to pay off device balances that are less than $300. This is because Verizon allows only a single payment method to pay off device balances. You cannot use a gift card to pay off device balances that are greater than the gift card balance, nor can you use multiple gift cards and/or multiple payment methods. Period.
Does this mean I am stuck with account credits or gift card(s) if my device balance is more than $300?
If you cancel your account with Verizon, then you will receive a final bill. You can pay the final bill using multiple payment methods. If you have account credits, Verizon will consider it in the final bill (any outstanding credits will be applied to your bill).
Can I just pay off the device balance and cancel my account immediately after purchase?
A couple of days back, Verizon added a new written clause in their trade-in screen: "If you received promo value when trading in a device and/or instant device savings, you will be charged for that value if you do not maintain active service for three billing cycles, unless you return the device within 14 days." All earlier promos didn't have this requirement, and hence people were able to cancel their account immediately. It is unclear how Verizon is going to approach this promo with updated terms. If you want to be very sure, just stay with Verizon for 3 months.
Can I trade in a cracked phone?
On speaking to online rep and on the site a cracked phone can only be traded in for a Droid Charge Turbo.
all of the below are direct copy from the G4 post (please edit it out yourself) :
For anyone concerned about getting this phone to work with T-Mobile, AT&T, and other carriers as it should with the hardware it comes with, I encourage everyone to take a minute and file the already drafted FCC complaint online.
Quote :Dear FCC:
I recently purchased a Verizon LG G4 from Verizon that was advertised as a "World Device - Works in over 200 countries... Network LTE Bands 4/13/2". See more specs here: http://www.verizonwire
Verizon has in fact forced their firmware to disable T-Mobile's LTE Band 2 (1900MHz) & Band 4 (1700MHz & 2100MHz).
In short, despite the LTE Radio Frequency hardware capabilities of the LG G4 smartphone being present, the Verizon software prevents the phone from establishing 4G LTE connections thus severely crippling consumer Internet Access & various MMS capabilities. I own this phone but cannot use it on a competing carriers network for Internet Access or MMS messaging.
This is clearly an attempt by Verizon to carrier lock this device thus forcing consumers to use their service or purchase another T-Mobile branded LG G4 smartphone.
Please make Verizon stop this monopolistic and illegal practice.
Please see this forum post for additional details in regards:
To get both LTE and voice working for ATT/Tmobile variants follow these steps - Note: Root required. Would not recommend to novice users.

For porting ring.to account back to Verizon!!!
Here are the two paths I see to get the cheapest port-in # AND trade-in phone:
Always buy this $10 phone:
I say bestbuy because that is the only store that stocks it for immediate purchase.
2a) activate the tracfone on tracfone.com using the cheapest $10 value plan: https://www.tracfone.co
2b) buy this for $5 or for $1 if it is on sale: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/T-Mob...935970488
3b) buy this for $10 to activate the T-Mobile SIM:
option a) total: $20 + device + tax - $300 trade-in - $200 BF promo + $20 device activation
option b) total: $25 + device + tax - $300 trade-in - $200 BF promo + $20 device activation
Verizon has the right to deny you the ability to finance phones as long as they are not refusing on the basis of your race, religion, gender, etc. There is no question that is accurate.
Swap SIM trick
1. Upgrade a line OR add a line and select Droid Turbo 2
2. You will receive one TB22 (upgrade), one TB23 (New line) once your new DT2 is activated
3. (Assuming you have 2 or more lines) turn off DT2 and other phone (HTC for example).
4. Put DT2 SIM in HTC and put HTC SIM in DT2 (say around 3pm est.)
5. Turn on your phones; Start Verizon messages app and accept terms
6. Just leave both device turned on until you get a code. These texts usually come around 12pm est, so keep both phones turned on until about 1pm the following day.
There's only one sure way to hit Verizon where it hurts them the most.
Submit your dispute to: NoticeofDispute@Verizonwireless.com on this form or even without the form.
Select Arbitration. Wait 30 days. If you don't get a response, file arbitration at www.adr.org and ask for in-person arbitration.
Verizon is required to pay the cost of arbitration including the filing fee, if you ask for it in writing. Their cost is $3700 per case.
Be sure to ask for some type of "equitable relief" such as you want them to perform the remainder of the contract,
otherwise they'll transfer the case to small claims to avoid paying the arbitration fees.
They'll try to offer you $500 to go away - if that's close to the amount of lost gift cards, accept it; if not, reject and proceed to a hearing. -my2
Verizon Order via Xfinity to apply multiple GCs
Here is my write up on paying off your DPP through Xfinity.... Please feel free to point out if I missed something Big Grin
Go to xfinity.com/verizonwireless
Select 'Buy Now' and ignore the promo listed as it has expired (but don't worry, more to come about this).
From this point on, make sure every time you make a selection and a new page loads that you see the 'Xfinity/Verizon Wireless' logo is at the top of the page (more on this later). Clicking that 'Buy Now' button should bring you to a log-in page. Enter your Verizon account info and sign in.
Now, select 'Device with Service'. This should bring you to a page showing all of your lines, devices attached and upgrade eligibility.
This is where it might get a little tricky depending on number of DPP's you have and if you have been moving SIM cards around between devices but in any case choose the line you believe the DPP you want to pay off by checking the Upgrade/Upgrade available box below the device and then select the red 'Continue' button.
You should now be on the page offering you the opportunity to 'Own your device and upgrade'. It will show the remaining amount owed for the DPP on that line. If the amount matches what you were expecting to pay then check off the box to select the payoff option and then select the red ' Continue' button.
You will now be sent to a page to select your new device. We have been selecting the 'Droid Mini' as it is the cheapest smartphone available this way ($108 or $4.50/mo for 24 months. You should do the same and then once again 'Continue'
Unless you want a different color than white (red and black are available) simply 'Add to Cart'
Now, just keep 'Continuing' through the various options presented to you such as protection plans. accessories, etc. you will eventually get to the 'Review you Order page' which will show lots of things but the important part is showing 'Device Buyout Pmt' which should be the amount of the DPP you are getting rid of and then the 'Total Due Today' which should be the DPP payout plus the tax due on the new Droid Mini. *** You can attempt to add the 'UPGRADE' promo code on this page. It will accept it but for many it does not reduce the amount for the phone*** If that is correct select the red 'Continue' button.
You now will be agreeing to your new DPP contract, it will show the terms for the mini at $108 spread over 24 months which works out to $4.50/mo. unless the UPGRADE code worked for you then terms will be $8 spread over 24 months which equals $0.33/mo. Check off the ' I have read and agree' box accepting their terms and then the red 'Continue' button.
You are finally at the payment page, look for 'Select payment type' and change to 'Gift Card'. If the amount you are paying off is more than $300 you have to change the payment amount field to $300 (amount available on your gift card) then add the card number and PIN info, check the box agreeing to their terms and then click the red 'Submit' button. You should get a popup saying 'partial payment accepted'.
Now, you should be seeing the same payment page again but with a $300 lesser amount due. Follow the same steps as above, if the amount due is less than $300 then simply enter your second gift cards info. Before you select 'Submit' ***Important*** please make sure you still have the same Xfinity/Verizon Wireless' logo at top of screen. Once you select 'Submit' you are finalizing your order. Reason for watching the logo is that if present you have done the transaction thru Xfinity and qualify for their rebate program. Current terms say you will receive a $50 visa card for an upgrade (which you are doing) though some have received more, even up to $200 back which more than covers the price of the droid mini. You can check status of the rebate process via this link http://www.card-status.com/vzw-xfinity/status. Be patient with checking this as it is not even close to being updated regularly, it is showing 'no order found' for me on orders placed 4 days ago and on another they have shipped the card even though I haven't had the phone long enough for it to get to that stage (they wait 14 days before progressing as that is the window for returning the device).
Check your order conformation email, if it lists the 'Location Code' as E184001 then you went through the proper procedure to qualify for the Xfinity gift card. Anything else means the proper referral code was not sent when you placed your order, Xfinity gets nothing and you get nothing Frown
Once you get new phone you need to activate it to complete the rebate process. Seems like a lot of work but now you can pay off the new DPP directly thru the Verizon website without buying a new phone though you will be probably be limited to paying them off one per day per gift card (just got to this point so not positive).
Hope this helps and good luck! -MachVii
