Okay. Here's the deal. My contract with Verizon just ended. I got grandfathered into the unlimited data plan but the only time I ever have really needed it is the rare times when I'm on vacation and can't get to sleep so I watch Netflix til I pass out. Other than that, maybe a few gigs a month. I currently pay anywhere from $107-113 a month for unlimited data, text, 450 minutes and insurance. I don't really talk much. In fact, it's the 19th of the month and I've only used 51 minutes, counting nights/weekends and mobile to mobile. Without that it's 37. I've looked into renewing my contract and basically, if I want a new phone for a decent price, I'll have to spend at least $110 plus taxes for even less than what I'm getting now. I have been reading around here and this unlimited text, data, and 100 minutes for $30 seems like a great deal. The thing is, I've had a phone since I was in junior high which was like almost 15 years ago. I had T-Mobile before they were T-Mobile. They were called Voice Stream. I have had the same number since then and so I just have some questions about switching since I'm not incredibly experienced. 1. Since I had an account with T-Mobile back when they first came around, will I have a problem getting in on this deal? My mom had to put her name on the phone back then since I was only like 14 or 15 but I don't know if they'll be able to trace the number back as being one they created. 2. If I change from a contract to month-to-month, will I have to get a new phone number or can I transfer it? And if I happen to leave and go to a different company, can I transfer it to them? 3. I've decided on getting the Google Nexus 4 but obviously, they are having issues getting orders filled. If I get a temporary phone and then order when the phone is back in stock, will I have any issues? 4. Is there any insurance option on the phone through either Google or T-Mobile? That's all that I can think of right now. I appreciate any help. I've been reading the threads and you guys are a hell of a lot more knowledgeable than me and I'm the kind of guy who does a lot of research before making a big purchase and $350 for an unlocked phone isn't that bad of a price when I'm seeing others for $600+ Thanks again.
