In all seriousness though, this is my strategy. I have confirmed with Verizon that this will work. Both me and my wife have lines. Both lines upgrade at the same time, which is next January. Verizon said I could upgrade one line, get a new phone, and wait to upgrade the other line for as long as I want. I can upgrade HER line, get the newer phone, but activate the phone on MY line. My wife gets the phone I just had and I get the new one. A year later I upgrade MY line, get a newer phone, give her my old one. A year later, same thing. It equals an upgrade a year, just like a one year contract. Then you're never too worried about the next phone making yours look weak.
Solid strategy my friend.
