    You should call and order over internet. they should be able to charge to bill as long as the account is older than 6 months...

    Ya, I tried the same thing when pre-ordering the S3. For pre-orders the system will not let them bill to account because they essentially are holding funds til it ships. If they bill to your account they are basically charging you right away and if something happens like back orders or whatever you might get stuck paying for it on your next monthly bill without actually having phone.

    What requirements are needed for them to charge a phone to your bill and how long do you have to pay it off, also could you do this paying full retail price.Thanks

    THere are no payment plans, etc. If you charge to bill, you have to pay it off in full with your next payment.

    does this also apply to full retail price without adding a line.

    I am not sure if you can charge full retail to a bill or not, I have never bought a phone full retail.

    You can take longer than one bill but they will just treat it like your bill is late, take too long and they can suspend your service. Not advisable but option is there....

    I'd be willing to bet they wouldn't do it for full retail but you never know. Call a CSR and see

    for most people the amount you are limited to charging to your account is 400 in one month.

    I was thinking the exact same thing, but yeah you have to purchase it in store to get it charged to your bill. However when I went to do exactly that they said they were not allowing people to purchase the phone outright for cash on Day One, they were only accepting people upgrading to the phone and (re)activating a new contract. A little bit of wrangling though and they decided to see it my way and let me not only buy the phone off contract but charge it to my bill as well. A win-win-win if I ever saw one.
