    We just got 2 Note 2's and now having to leave the Verizon network. We've gone with Sprint (though I know the service isn't as great, but MUCH less for unlimited), I wanted to see if I can flash from Verizon to Sprint, but I've researched it and it looks like the answer to that is NO! I LOVE my Note 2 but I don't know what to do with it, other then being able to use my apps with wifi. These phones are too amazing and too expensive not to use

    It depends on what you need I guess, i am paying just under $45 for my share of the family line with taxes and discounts, and includes unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE on Verizon. Now, if you need unlimited everything, then yeah, Verizon is gonna cost more, but if you just need unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE, then Verizon doesn't cost that much more.

    If you bought the phones new, then you should be able to return them, if you are still within the return period. If you are past 14 days though, then your contract is locked, so you would be better off selling them on ebay or cl and paying etf, if applicable, assuming that you didn't buy from a third party that charges a secondary etf.

    You can also try to get someone to assume your liability but that's only if you're worried about the ETF. For the phones, list them at a decent price on Swappa, CL, or Ebay.

    If the op has unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE on Verizon, then he should be able to sell his account to make some money. If you don't have unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE, then it would probably be hard to find someone willing to take over your account by itself (i.e. without phones or some other incentive), considering that they would be stuck on contract for quite some time. If the op has an old family plan, then he might be able to sell it as well(or even give it), even without unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE, but much harder

    Why leave Verizon?
    Try selling and have buyer meet you at Verizon store. Safe that way

    I know what u mean. with insurance, 250 text messages per line, we pay over $150 a month for two phones (grandfathered unlimited). if it werent for good signals in every state I've been in, I'd leave Verizon in a heartbeat. coverage great; price dreadful.

    wow, you're lucky! our bill ended up being over $240! that's just for 2 phones with 6 gb's of data... we did get suckered into getting 2 of the galaxy tab 2's because they were on sale, was supposed to be $10/month per, after all the fees and crap they throw on, it was more like over $25/month per. We live in the country and needed more reliable coverage, but I can't justify spending over $100 more a month!

    I pay just under $45 for my share of the family plan with unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE. On my plan, we have two smartphones and 3 dumb phones. I have looked into cheaper alternatives which offer unlimited unthrottled 4G, even hspa+ or whatever, and could not find a plan that offers unlimited 4G for substantially less than what I am paying. I don't need lots of minutes or texts, those aren't important to me

    If you are OK with losing your phone number, you can sell your unlimited VZW data plan.

    I wanted to see if I can flash from Verizon to Sprint, but I've researched it and it looks like the answer to that is NO!
    You can flash it to Sprint, but Sprint won't let you use it on their network because of the IMEI number not being one of theirs.

    Does your job offer corporate discount? That's a huge help. Also have you figured out how much data the two of you use? Do you have wifi?

    You can't use a Verizon phone on T-mo or ATT. Different radio tech.

    I had a terrible experience with Verizon as far as customer service and price. Their service is probably the best I've had in San Diego but not worth the ridiculous prices they charge or rude customer service.

    I never have had bad customer service. There are bad reps tho on all carriers.
    And sorry the OP was talked into tablets as well. Taxes do make a difference on the outright cost on monthly bill.
    I do have a tablet but mine is Wifi not on contract. So no 10 bucks a month.
    Hope Sprint works for you. Their CS lacks. Have to do what you have to do!

    Not that rare, at least on Verizon. If it is a 4GLTE Verizon phone and has gsm capabilites and is a somewhat recent phone, there is a strong chance that it is sim unlocked, either from the factory or by update.

    My Rezound, razr, razr maxx, s3, and Note 2 all had gsm capabilites and were sim unlocked.

    My thunderbolt didn't have gsm capabilites...
