I have an iPhone 4 with a plan that is no longer available. I'd like to buy a new iPhone 6s at full price so I can keep my current plan. I've tried purchasing online but it won't let me. The only option is to "upgrade" to a new plan. I do not want this. If I purchase an iPhone 6s from Apple or another party that is not Verizon, could I just transfer my number to the new iPhone without interrupting my current plan?
You can buy full price in store, should be able to buy online at full price as well, may need to log out and purchase as guest. You can activate without changing your plan.
Thanks for replying. I tried to buy it full price on the Verizon site but it still would only give me the option to upgrade my plan, not just activate a new phone. It even gave me the warning that I would be abandoning my old plan for a new one. So I just want to make sure that if I buy the iPhone 6s from a 3rd party, that Verizon will just let me activate the phone without changing my plan. This plan of mine is pretty great which is why it doesn't exist any more. My brother lost his old plan but I think he switched to a completely different type phone. I figure if I keep it in the Apple family, that perhaps I can keep my current plan. Thanks for you help.
