I literally just ported in my number from another provider a few days ago- without any promo. Is there any way I can have this retroactively applied?

The offer only shows up for port in on 4/20 or later. I chatted with rep and said I qualified for promo even though I ported on 4/15.

I submitted promo using 4/20 date let's see what happens in eight weeks.

No and even if a rep says it will be, it won't be.

They will farking say anything, it is meaningless. They are foreigners who don't even work for Verizon.

Let us know, but the whole reason it takes that long is because someone has to manually check that.

About two months but need to be active for six months
Sincerely can't thank you enough for the info you've shared svsfan, in fleshing out the details. May I ask where you were able to find this listed? I tried going as far as going through a mock order using a Verizon 6s, but wasn't able to obtain what you've secured.

The "troubling" part to me about this offer is the mention of a port-in from a postpaid carrier. While I expected as much that they would stress T-Mobile, AT&T or Sprint, my hope was that this also extended to port-ins from MVNOs (Cricket, MetroPCS, etc.). In that case, it would be enticing to be able to make the switch from a less expensive option. Given the 6 and 6s Verizon phones are factory unlocked, sure some SD'ers could find some shall we say "creative" ways to make this offer work best for them. Also, as you mentioned with Boost Mobile/Virgin Mobile 33GB iPhone 6 for $200 deals, would've been great to simply pay the $20 fee to get a premium unlock then maybe a small fee to activate on an MVNO, then port in to Verizon for this promo. Alas, some folks may know someone on one of the other big three postpaid carriers that could add their unlocked 6 onto a temporary line for one month I'm sure... but who knows if you have to be the primary account holder or what Wink
