So tonight I decided that enough is enough with my malfunctioning Droid and it was time to upgrade to an iPhone. My only hurdle is that I wasn't eligible for an upgrade until September, but I knew my phone wouldn't last that long. So what I ended up doing was adding a line to my account, get the iPhone at the subsidized price, switch my real phone number from the Droid to the iPhone, then downgrade the Droid to an old RAZR that I have laying around the house to lower the bill. My plan was to just pay out the RAZR until the end of the contract (Jan 2012 I believe), then cancel and have my iPhone. I assumed that while my new iPhone had my old number transfered to it, it would still be considered a brand new contract with a different end date. HOWEVER When I got home I logged into my account on the website, and I noticed underneath the RAZR account summary, the end date of the contract was 3/11/2013. The iPhone is listed at 1/15/2012, with an eligible upgrade in September, just like my Droid in the first paragraph. WTF????? Did Verizon just commit a major goof on their part and not switch the actual contracts like I thought they would? Theoretically if this were to stand, I can cancel my RAZR line within 14 days and not pay a cent in monthly charges and ETFs, and be eligible for an upgrade on my iPhone line in September? I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this situation, since this isn't exactly an ordinary situation.
