    Today, my wife dropped her phone and the screen cracked. The phone is unuseable and we are 2 months out from being able to have a "reduced" cost upgrade and 6 months out from the contract being completed where we can upgrade for free.. Verizon wants to sell me a Certified Pre Owned Phone with a new contract...or spend a lot of money on another phone.

    I was wondering if its possible to buy a used phone (probably a Stratosphere) from somewhere, put in the sim card and activate it and use it for another 6 months so we can do the "free" upgrade then. I just want to keep her and I on the same contract.

    Absolutely an option, any Verizon 4G LTE phone should accept your LTE SIM and work fine... I would suggest Buy and Sell Used Mobile Phones and Tablets > Swappa, Craig's List, or eBay... A Samsung Charge, Droid Bionic, Pantech Breakout, and the LG Lucid 4G are all 4G phones and can be had for under $100 on Swappa right now, with some as low as $55. They are not the best phones by any means, but will allow you to have service and fulfill your contract with minimal investment.
