    her droid rzr maxx with?

    Right now she has a regular vzn plan and pays $110 before tax, her eft at this point would be $260 but she would save $50/month if she went with one of those $50/$55/$60ish off contract plans. are any of those companies owned by vzn so she could still use her phone?

    I think you can use virgin mobile, boost mobile, cricket, and there may be another. Have you looked into Verizon's pre paid? Its unlimited talk and text with 2gigs data for 60$

    Droid rzr maxx is 4g lte. The only way to flash it to boost would be by a third party doing the flashing and setting up an acct. And no 4g. It's risky and she could end up losing her number. Straight talk has a byop but only 3 g phones..... So the maxx is out. Vzw prepaid is only with specified vzw phones....no maxx. If she is trying to cut down price.....see if someone will assume liability of her line....no etf and she can go to any prepaid she wants....most phones are under 200=sell maxx and use to buy new boost, virgin, vzwprepaid, or straighttalk phone. Even the Sammy s3 is 350 at vm or boost.

    could she port her number to any of the other pre-paid ones you mention? (she would sell the maxx then)

    You can bring your own phone to Verizon prepaid, but it has to be 3g. So any recent smartphone is out.

    Honestly, my opinion is just sell the Droid razr maxx, and pay $200 for the nexus 4, then move to a gsm carrier.

    If money is very tight and you are having issues with the phone, Verizon may replace it with another phone, say the s3, which can be used on domestic gsm, but may need root for data. This assumes that you have warranty or extended warranty.

    Yes she could, but what about the etf? If she is comfortable with paying etf...any of the prepaids will do. Straight talk has certain phones that use vzw towers.....boost/vm is sprint. Att and tmo are also available thru st.

    Yes, she's good to pay for the etf, it's $260 at this point. great, thanks! And the pre-paids are 4g? Her plan, or rather my plan for her, was actually to go with tmo or sprint,whichever has best coverage in her area, but if there is a pre-paid that would work just as well, shell be into that.

    tmo is gsm, right? what is the advantage of gsm vs. cdma? I have no idea but i can tell you her phone habits: she is a normal user. phone/text/internet. would never root. and probably doesn't even know what the dif is btwn 4.0 and 4.3 android. Tmo would be an extra $120 a year for her i think over sprint if she were to go with a non-nexus phone.

    Different technology. But really cdma is on its way out i think. Nexus 4 right now is the best deal if on a budget. But of course, you also need a phone that suits her needs.

    I would use tmo w a Nex4 and get a s.t. SIM from wallyworld. They claim 4g but it's actually hspa+...none of the prepaids are lte yet. But boost..vm are trying hard to claim it's coming..I was a vm customer for three yrs...went to vzw for lte.

    Virgin has had LTE for a while now, granted it runs off of Sprints lackluster network, but it's still LTE. I believe they have 3 LTE enabled phones now, the Galaxy Victory, Galaxy S3, and the LG Optimus F3.
