How does Verizon know when a phone is purchased at a discounted rate when trying to upgrade? Using the scenario of the 2 year contract being over and done with. I am considering buying the iphone 5s directly through Apple and upgrading my phone through Verizon. Am i required to extend my contract for another 2 years or continue month to month?  I asked a representative through Verizon, but she apparently could not answer my question.

Thanks

You are NOT required to extend your contract. You can continue on month-to-month if you choose to pay full retail.

Thanks for asking, nlocke. We can track the sale to the activation date to see when, where and how a device was purchased. If you pay for the device at retail price, that doesn't extend a contract at all. Does that answer your question?
