*I posted this in the big thread but wanted to get it here so it had its own thread* So I wanted to let everyone know there is an option for you if you do NOT have an upgrade available. I apologize if someone else covered this but this is something I've confirmed I can do with my buddy from Verizon and Verizon Customer Service to double check: 1) You have an existing line with Verizon so this applies to you. 2) You can add a new line for $10/month and get your Nexus for $200/$300. 3) But you have a smart phone on line #1. 4) You switch the Nexus to line #1. You switch the existing smartphone to line #2. 5) But you don't want two smart phones on 2 lines. 6) Swap the line #2 smartphone with a feature phone and that line becomes just a $10/month line instead of a $40/month (10+data pack) line. 7) You will have two lines rolling because Verizon ONLY cares about your LINE (not phone) being active with a 2 year committment. BENEFIT: 1) You will have the Nexus on line #1 which is carrying the original phones committment. You can upgrade the Nexus when that phone is up. (i.e. You bought a Dinc and you have upgrade up in May (for instance). You 'll be able to upgrade the Nexus (if you choose) in May. 2) Line number 2 will have your feature phone sitting around for the 22 month committment on the Nexus but will have that Upgrade 1 year from May. This is because this line is carrying the Nexus committment. 3) In the end, you will have the ability to do what? Upgrade in May then next May (roughly). So for an extra $10 dollars per month you can have rolling yearly upgrades. Return on investment: Instead of buying a Nexus for 600 dollars . Over the next year if you pay the $10/month for a feature phone on the second like its only the costs of the Nexus + 120/year for the additional line = $420. 600-420 = $180 savings + Having rolling yearly (roughly ) upgrades ! This assumes your upgrades fall in line with my example. Yes it is that awesome. Hope this helps!
