Transferring service from Verizon/Prepping Galaxy Nexus for sale
Hey guys. Realize that this has probably been asked already, but I'm having a hard time finding one that exactly answers my questions, so here goes.
I bought me a Nexus 4 and I'm transferring service from an old Verizon family plan to a T-Mobile prepaid. My contract is already up, so no ETF should apply. From what I've read, if I transfer my old number (to either T-Mo or GV), it should cancel my Verizon line automatically on that family plan... right? I can then just pop out the 4G sim and be good to go on that front? Or do I need to haul myself to a Verizon store, endure the BS about keeping me as a customer, and get them to cancel it for me?
My follow-up - I am selling a Verizon GNex. I've sold phones before, but never actually an Android phone, so I wanted to be extra careful in how I deal with the data wipe. My plan was to do a built-in encryption, overwrite the SD section manually on Windows, then do a factory wipe on the phone itself. Anything I'm missing, or is this already overkill?
Thanks guys. Never actually posted before but huge fan of the community you have going on.
