Sucks that it's only for new line of services. I have a line that I want to upgrade or get a new phone for. =/

I should of jumped on the $1/mo for the Galaxy J3 on a DPP for 24 months. But wanted a better phone.

One still needs to pay monthly for costly Verizon prepaid service fees though. That's the catch.

What? This isn't a prepaid phone deal - it's on the DPP plan. $144 plus whatever your tax is plus $20 activation fee plus 1-2 days service.

$200 GC less
$144 Phone payoff
$20 Activation
$5 Service (approx)
$15 Tax (Approx)
Total - $186 (Approx) - $14-15 positive and free phone.

If you go to the store and do it you can apply the GC towards the device down payment and reduce your out of pocket more. Or roll on additional lines.

Yes, the first month. It's DPP, you can cancel any time. And it's prorated anyway.

I'm getting only the store pickup option. Were you able to get it shipped? It's easy way to convert Verizon gc to BB gc.

Am I wrong but it said $1 with 2 year contract and $6/mo for 24mo?
So I can get this phone for $6 a month to upgrade existing line and will be able to get $200 BB GC?

In my experience, I haven't been able to put BB GC towards down payment in-store (even using a previous one that I had).

Can't upgrade existing line. Only new lines of service - or added lines to existing account.

What if phone was stolen and line was on hold for a while?
Just curious... My kid lost her phone 'bout 2 months ago.

I am almost certain you cannot use an upgrade. If the line has been suspended you could add a line to the account and then cancel your suspended one (assuming no ETF issue).

It's a BB promo on the GC so your best bet would be going in to talk to them. You will probably have to add the line for the GC though.

No problem. You might want to read through this thread here - https://slickdeals.net/f/9063607-verizon-lg-k8v-4g-lte-16gb-144-150-best-buy-gift-card-for-dpp-best-buy?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

Same thing as this about 6 weeks ago, but the GC was $150 - might find an answer there
