Another Upgrade Question
Alright, I'm sorry but I have another question about upgrades. I was wondering if the primary line takes an upgrade from one of the other family plan users, will it take the primary lines upgrade away? Like if there's is in six months and they use an upgrade from another line, will their upgrade be there still in six months? Thanks a lot for the help.

Let me see if I have it right (if I don't, ignore my advice )
So you're talking about the primary line (let's call it line A) using another line's upgrade (Line B), correct?
So something like this:
You use Line B's upgrade to get a new phone on Line A.
If this is the case, then the contract on LINE B will be extended to end 2 years from that date. The upgrade on line A won't be affected at all, so it will be eligible when it always was, and if you have a NE2 credit on that line you won't use it.
This means that you can then use Line A's upgrade at a later date, either to get yourself a new phone, or to get a new device for Line B.
Does that make sense?

So if you had a NE2 of $30, and you wanted a phone that was $200, you would only pay $170 for it if you used the upgrade on the primary line.
That program is going away though, so if you use your last NE2, in 2 years, you'll pay what a new customer would pay for a phone (what the other lines pay right now).

Places like wirefly will only let you use the eligible upgrade (and they won't honor NE2)
You can technically do an ESN change (switch the phones yourself) to get the phone on the right line once activated, but Wirefly might have a restriction on this. Most third parties require that you keep the phone active for 6 months before you mess with what account it's on. Some will let you switch between lines on the same family plan, some won't

Nope. No fee. If you are still in your current contract, you will need to buy a phone at retail price if you want a different phone. You can talk to them and see what they can do but other then that, nope.

There's no possible way to terminate it early and do another one? That's complete crap. If I had the money, I'd switch to AT&T (despite how much worse it is) because it'd be cheaper.

I'm in the same boat you are and would like a new device, but don't want to pay full retail. But I'm stuck and just need to wait.
You're willing to sacrifice Verizon's reliability just to get a new device? The dropped calls on AT&T were terrible. I'd never go back.
