    I just had a problem with my Turbo that Verizon wanted nothing to do with so I had to call Motorola anyway so I don't see that as a big deal. You take a device in the store and most of the time they tell you to call OEM.
    For phone issues, I usually call in. Never had a problem getting a phone replaced over the phone

    It is pretty likely that it will. But I haven't seen anything that says one way or the other

    Hopefully Verizon will eliminate 2 year contracts entirely at some point this year and launch new plans with the discount built in. That would at least resolve the problem but we will have to wait and see.
    I wouldn't hold your breath on that ... this buying unlocked phone thing is for Android enthusiasts like us, which make up probably less than 5% of the general public. plans with discounts aren't happening, and 2 years plans are definitely not going away, not even close

    If you are doing a BYOD, why does anyone think they should get the $15/25 discounts, that is intended for Verizon's Edge program, same as AT&T's Next you don't get a discount unless you are on the program which ties you to them through a hardware contract that if you leave you pay off the balance. Easier and cleaner for them.
    I get a $15 discount on VZ, own my S4 outright.

    Correct. Currently Verizon allows off contract to have the 15/25 discount. Previously, it did not.

    Depending on the previous plan though, right?

    I believe that it is applicable to the more everything plan and legacy share everything plans only. Older plans like the one with unlimited data do not get a discount for being off contract. Kinda Verizon's way of nudging people to a current plan. And really for the vast majority of people, unless you care about UDP, you should be on a current plan.


    But also the off contract discount didn't start until more recently on April 17,2014, after the MEP was introduced.

    They give a discount for off contract on Verizon certified phones. If the phone isn't certified like the n6 at launch then it probably would not qualify for the 15/25 off contract discount
    All you had to do was call.

    I have the 2014 Moto X and the thing I'm most upset about is the lack of advanced calling (no simultaneous voice and data in particular!!!). I was promised by the Verizon clowns that it would be turned on within a month or two and here we are 9 months later and nothing! Has anyone heard anything one way or another about whether the new Moto X Style will have advanced calling turned on from the beginning?

    I don't think we will know until closer to release but I am having a hard time being optimistic as if any part of it requires Verizon to do something on their end makes chances of it being included on an unlocked carrier free device slim to none.

    I'm about to switch to AT&T. Their 4G LTE is faster. Plans are cheaper. They get better phones. (I still have unlimited data so this is a tough choice for me)

    I am in a similar boat. I have a grandfathered unlimited plan but only really use 3-4GB of data per month. Verizon's network in Houston is having regular congestion issues while both AT&T and T-Mobile have improved greatly in the past year. I have pretty much decided whatever phone I get next will be multi-carrier (either the Moto X or new Nexus) and will make a decision within the next few months.

    That does suck. I wouldn't give up unlimited though since I actually use a bit. If you're comfortable with a limited one and it will save you cash in the long run it may be an option.

    If AT&T offered a promo to switch (ie pay any fees, etc), I'd move over myself.

    Advanced Calling is available on the Nexus 6 on verizon thanks to the built in settings in android 5.1 (where it is called "Enhanced 4G mode"). I would expect the MXPE to work the same way since it is absent any carrier software.

    I dont know what the heck happened with the 2014 Moto X. As far as I know it is the only modern phone without simultaneous voice + data on Verizon.

    Verizon requested it be removed from the 2014 Moto X. Another reason anything is possible when it comes to Verizon. Here is an image of the now deleted forum post from a Motorola engineer:

    They sold the Moto X though didn't they? So them making that request makes sense -- Moto has said they will be the ones selling it (not the carriers) so those modifications shouldn't take place.

    You're correct from what I understand, Enhanced 4G Mode is on the stock, unlocked Nexus 6 (sold on the Play Store with no Verizon hands involved) running Lollipop 5.1 and on. And Verizon customers using that version of the phone report that Advanced Calling works just fine. So is that built into Lollipop/Marshmallow and will work once we pop in our Verizon Sims it just works (as long as HD calling is turned on with our accounts)?

    I asked this question on XDA in the N6 forums (I was tempted to get an N6 until the X went on sale). I'm Co.Ag.2005 on XDA as well asking the questions

    Yes. Pop in the vzw sim, enable volte on your account, reboot (sometimes needed), the phone identifies what network it is on, and then you can enable the toggle. Worked perfectly on my nexus 6 on verizon. If you have any issues (like enhanced 4g mode toggle disappearing) toggling volte on/off in your verizon account usually fixes it.

    So I am a little unsure on something here. People in the thread mention you need an active sim so you can use this phone with the Verizon network. Well, now I have a HTC One (M7). That means I don't have an active sim, right? If not, how would I go about getting one?
