If your contract is not for an unlimited data plan, you can get a new phone for the 2 Year Contract price ($299, $399, or $499). If you are trying to keep an unlimited data plan, you have to pay full retail for the phone. Verizon REALLY wants people to use the shared data plans. 🙂
You don't have to renew your contract if you're happy with your current phone. You can go month to month for as long as you want. But yes, the one benefit of resigning is getting a subsidized phone. As JamieFarFromHome said, you will lose unlimited if you upgrade, but can keep it if you buy a phone off contract and activate it on your line.
Oh - I think I understand.
If you are at the end of your contract, you can get a new iPhone 5 at the subsidized price by signing a new 2 year contract. I hadn't thought of doing it the way SydneyK described, but that would certainly work as well. 🙂
The iPhone 5 is an excellent choice! You have great taste in technology! You can order the device online or in a store, which ever is easiest for you! You can check all the information right here: http://bit.ly/pn4o6I. Don't hesitate to reply if you have more questions for us.
