Buy Verizon Phones without Contract Plan

Buy Verizon Phones without Contract Plan Lost your Verizon phone or simply want to replace your old phone with a new one. Yes, you have the option to buy Verizon cell phones without contract. But that will cost you a lot of money up front. For example, buying the new DROID Eris with no contract will cost you $440 out of pocket. And you won’t qualify for any rebates. Need to replace 2 phones in a family plan, you need to shed another $300 for a popular phone like the LG Chocolate TOUCH. Even a basic flip phone like the new LG VX5500 without Verizon contract will require you to drop $200. Imagine you need 5 lines. Ouch, paying your hard earn money for Verizon phones without Contract is just not worth it. And what good is a phone without plan?

So how long do you plan to stay with Verizon Wireless after you buy a Verizon phone with no contract? There are really no big benefits except you can switch to another carrier at anytime without paying Early Termination Fee. The ETF is $175. If you can get DROID Eris and Chocolate TOUCH for $0 you are saving almost $800. Even you are just planning to stay for a few months with Verizon Wireless and the savings you get from buying a brand new phone with contract is much greater than buying no contract Verizon phones. Furthermore, you can test drive any new phones for 30 days. If you are not 100% satisfied, simply exchange for a new phone of your choice.

Update: Motorola Droid costs $550 without contract while you only have to pay $150 for the phone with a new service plan. That $400 saving alone is more than enough to cover the Early Termination Fee if you decide to switch carriers.

    Okay, so I was thinking about getting a verizon no contract phone and using phone cards to buy minutes and such, but my one question is with a no contract phone do I still get free communication to other verizon users? I’ve been asking around and for some reason no one has an answer for me, including the verizon wireless support group… If you have the answer PLEASE tell me!! Thanks!

    If you get a verizon wireless no contract plan, can you get unllimmited texting?

    @Ann, yes. $10 gives you unlimited mobile to mobile texting with Verizon customers. For $20/month you get unlimited texting to anyone on any network.
