Have a phone you love? Get up to $500 when you switch and bring your phone.
Up to $500 via Verizon e-gift card (sent w/in 8 wks). Port-in & activation of 4G LTE/5G phone on select Unlimited plans req’d. Line must remain active for 45 days. $500 charge back if service cancelled w/in 12 mos or eligibility req's are no longer met. See vzw.com/bring-your-own-device for details.
You should be able to forward your texts to any mobile phone number or e-mail address, regardless of carrier. All you would need to do with the text open is click on your options button. There would then be a menu that came up, under which you could select "Forward". Once you've done that, you can type in the other person's phone number and click send.
