So I am trying to figure out how much this would be for me if I went to Verizon.

I currently have the following devices:

1. iPhone 5 (out of contract)
2. iPhone 6 (in contact with around $200 left)
3. LG V20 (out of contract, bought off swappa).

Does Verizon buy all your phones for trade in, or only the first phone? I saw I could trade in the LG one and get almost $700 in credits for it. But not sure on the others. The iPhone 6 supposedly can work on Verizon too, I just have to get it unlocked some how. The iPhone 5 I think is done.

So, I am assuming this will cost me this:

$80 +20 for the first line LG V20 or Google Pixel, then $20 for the iPhone 6, then $20 for a new iPhone 7 to replace the 5. So $80+20+20+20= $140 + cost of new iPhone 7, maybe $27ish....

$167 + taxes right?

3 lines of service with Verizon = $165 including $10 autopay discount, or $175 if you don't want autopay.

The V20 and iPhone 6 (after paying it off) you'd be able to trade in for a free Pixel, LG V20, Galaxy S7, S7 edge, Moto Z Droid or Moto Z Force Droid (via bill credits). The iPhone 7 is $27.08 per month undiscounted.

Subtotal $192.05 + taxes, blah blah with autopay or $202.05 without autopay.

Wow, nice chart. Thank you. So my bill would go up definitely compared to now. So from $180 a month to that.

Now, would I have to pay monthly on the two new phones, or would I own them after trading in these with no contract so I can upgrade at any time to another new phone (Note 8 when it comes out). When trading in phones, do you need to take the box and everything with it?

You'd pay net $0 after a bill credit for as long as that device was on your account. Upgrading to a new device would require paying off the balance. When trading in a device, it's typically the device only.

So basically you are saying I am paying for the phone every month but they are crediting it as well. So I actually don't own it. So I can't get a Note 8 unless I pay off that phone early it sounds like. :/

Correct, until all the payments have been made it's still on a device payment plan.

Sounds like the better option for me is to out right purchase another V20 off Swappa for Verizon to get me by and the other iPhone 6 can be a trade in and sell my V20 on swappa that I have for AT&T.

Not sure why when I do it online with Verizon it shows over $200 for my monthly bill. I am guessing it is adding the two new phones to it, and not discounting the trade in to the total price.

I'm looking at going to Verizon
They quoted me 45.00 a line, Plus 20.00 line access fee.
So for 2 phones with unlimited talk, text and 8Gb data it will be 110.00 a month, + taxes.
