Need help regarding Verizon wireless account and upgrade

pappoo07 49 37 December 19, 2015 at 10:40 AM
I have a UDP, my wife has a 6 GB plan. We are on the same account which is in my name. I took advantage of the best buy upgrade method for my UDP line about a year ago. I never called to take the switch order off of my account but have read that it usually drops off automatically in a few months.

My wife's line is due for an upgrade. I'd like to get her the iphone 6s for Christmas. I tried ordering one through best buy earlier today but eventually received an email saying there was an issue with my order and to call their mobile support line to get it sorted out. I somewhat panicked and decided to cancel the order since I thought the issue might have occurred due to the switch order that I never took off. I figured calling might jeopardize my UDP.

After I cancelled, I saw that I had a balance on my account that was due in a few weeks. I remember seeing that if you had a balance due it would cause the best buy order to kick an error. I decided to pay it and tried reordering the iphone. However, it is now unavailable for shipping (of course).

My question is, am I safe to order my wife a phone and get it shipped to store? From what I am reading, the switch order should be gone from my account. Since she has a 6 GB plan, I'm thinking I might be OK to handle it like a normal order, but really do not want to jeopardize my UDP line. Anyone have some insight? Will rep! Thanks!

I maintained something like this for a while. I assume you are maintaining both numbers as separate plans since one is unlimited and the other is not. In this case, as long as your wifes number is free and clear on the current phone, you should be okay.

As for that unlimited line, are you still under contract for it? I assume so otherwise you would have been hit with that $20 added to every bill.

The error you may be running into on Best Buy could be that your wife was on a 2 year plan which no longer exists and they can't extend your contract on that line.
