Switching phones.. pay monthly charge again?

Hello all,

First off, I love the Verizon prepaid option, it works great for me, and frankly I don't understand why people would even consider post paid. Anyway, I have a Galaxy S4 currently. But I'm tired of it, I want to go back to my iPhone 4 (Yea I know, downgrading, but I just love everything about it). When I try going through the steps on My Account, it takes me through like I am completely restarting my service and have to pay for a whole month again. I just paid a week ago. Is there a way to just switch the phones without having to pay the $50 again?

It's because prepaid service is tied to the service on the prepaid sim.  Switch over when a new month starts.  Or switch the SIM card.  You would need to cut it to size.

DUh, right my son had one.  You have to wait until the current service expires and have VWCSR switch you over.
