i just started a new job where they want me to port my number into their ATT plan. I have 3 options. 1. port my number in ( More on that below) 2. they issue me a number and a iphoneSE 3. they give me a 25 dollar subsidy to keep my own phone and plan. My issue is that my phone is still under a contract with Verizon and they want to charge me a 350 dollar ETF. I dont really want to pay that but it sounds like its my only option to keep my number and my phone. I have an iphone 6 64gb that is associated to that line on verizon. When i talked to the ATT sales rep in the store they informed me that if i wanted to take advantage of their plan where they pay my ETF fee to port my number in, i would have to trade in my iphone 6. I have my old iphone 5 that still works that i would prefer to trade in to keep my 6. ATT was insistent that i have to trade in my 6 in order to get the deal offered because they said that my contract with verizon showed that i have a 6 and that is what they need to issue me the credit.( Which i am calling BS on, but if thats correct please let me know) So i could do that. My third option is to sell my 6 on craigslist and get 300 bucks for it. Buy a new iphone 6plus for retail with that and trade my iphone 5 in. But it really doesn't make financial sense to do that with the 7 coming out in 2 months. In a perfect world, i would like to switch my contract with another line on my family plan but Verizon said its not possible. Am i missing something that would allow me to keep my 6 and port my number over to att for the least amount of money?
