Replacing your daughter's basic phone with another Verizon branded basic phone will not trigger an extension - in fact, the only thing that WILL trigger an extension is purchasing a discounted phone through Verizon or one of it's affiliates.

swappa.com, Amazon (if it is NOT a contract phone, read the fine print!), eBay private party sellers, a friend who may have a spare phone they are willing to sell you or let you borrow... all are good sources of phones that will not extend your contract.

Thank you so much! I got through to a Verizon customer service person who told me the same thing. I find phones and plans all so confusing! Picked up a sweet LG EnV3 for my daughter on ebay--best texting phone I've ever had! Thank you again, so nice for you to reply!
