Yes you are. If you transfer an upgrade you automatically inherit the upgrade date of the phone your switching with.
Nope not the way it works. If you transfer an upgrade the original lines contract gets extended and is not eligible for another upgrade for 2 years and the line the upgrade is being transferred to stays the same. I know just did this in January. I used another line to upgrade mine to a G2. Guess what I'm out of contract. The line I got the upgrade from contract was renewed until Jan 2016.
And if your on unlimited you can't extend your contract. Only people that are officially on contract with unlimited data are a few that took advantage of a site glitch last September for 2 days that allowed upgrading of unlimited data lines. Other than those few everyone else's contracts were done by June 28th 2014.
Well that's just Bogus. I've swapped my upgrades enough times to see
whether or not a smartphone is in a contract.
So you're telling me that if I go use my 3 upgrades back to back it's going
to be over 2 years on a feature line
Listen it's simple say you have lines A, B, C. Say line A has an upgrade but line B wants to use it. A transfers upgrade to line B. Line B gets the phone but their contract and upgrade date stay the same. Line A's contract gets renewed and must wait 2 years or until line B or C wants to transfer their upgrade to line A
What if line a b c aren't in contract but d and e are. A and b are
Goal is to get line a and b in contract.
Line c upgrades to smartphone. That day it's switched with line a.
Then line b transfers upgrade to line d. You're telling me that they tack
on 2 years on the line that's already got 23 months left?
I'm not arguing I am trying to learn. We don't blow through our upgrades.
Our feature phones get replaced as needed from eBay.
No the upgrade affects the line that has the upgrade regardless if you "transfer it". So if you used the loophole transferring the unlimited lines upgrade to another line that specific line that holds unlimited agrees to the terms. So if Verizon audits accounts they can remove unlimited data plans as you agreed to the new terms on that line.
That doesn't answer my question. I'm not talking about their policies.
I am talking about how would they keep adding extra time to just one line
beyond two years. Doesn't make sense.
No one ever said that or suggested that Jfriend33. We clearly state the ORIGINAL line with the upgrade gets the new contract. You can only have 1 upgrade every 2 years so it's impossible to get time added.
Line A, B and C. Line A transfers to line B Line A gets a new contract. Line B decide to transfers to Line C, Line B gets a new contract. Line C transfers to A line C gets a new contract. It doesn't matter if you keep your upgrade or transfer it your line gets the new contract.
Exactly my point. So if I use up all our upgrades then I would have 2
unlimited lines under CONTRACT, thus not subject to throttling.
I have transferred upgrades for years using alternate upgrades and haven't
lost my unlimited. Many corporate stores commit commission fraud when they
refuse to help me upgrade and say it's mandatory the newly upgraded feature
line wait 24 hrs before swapping sims.
I just want clarification on this since it's been unclear since day one.
That's my question. Not nit picking little details verizon chooses not to
I am probably not going to even be affected by this. I just want to know
You can't have a unlimited data line under contract. If you transfer an upgrade from an unlimited line to another line then you'll get a new contract which voids your unlimited data.
I am not gonna argue with you about that.
While I've never had to do that due to our infrequent need to upgrade, my
family member has done it many many many times.
It does NOT remove unlimited data!
