    I have an iphone on verizon edge. Can I sell it on ebay or give it to someone else to use? I like to use an old android device.

    I'm still paying monthly edge payments on the iphone. I don't want to pay the full amount for the iphone edge or I'll lose my $25 monthly discount.

    You won't lose your discount. But yes you can sell it. Of course I'd you stop paying they might block the phone.

    You have to turn it in when upgrading. you are leasing the phone. don't sell it

    Not if you pay it off in full, then you own it and can sign a new Edge contract.

    verizon isn't a lease

    sprint's iphone for life is a lease. if you want to cancel iPhone for life on sprint you have to pay off all remaining lease payments plus buy the phone or surrender it.

    in order to sell a edge device you need to do the following:
    1. keep making mobile device payments or pay off the device , i think you should plan on paying off the device before selling it.
    2. go to my verizon.com and transfer the line to another device. you do this by giving it a new MEID #
    3. erasing the iPhone and remove it from your iCloud account
    4. as an extra touch go to supportprofile.apple.com and remove the iPhone from your apple id. not necessary. but maybe its a good idea. so if someone calls apple care with your old serial # they won't automatically think they are talking to you

    transferring the device to a new meid # on my verizon.com should unregister your device and allow you to sell your iPhone

    moving the sim card instead of doing #2 might be all you need to do, but i felt like it was better to do #2 anyway. . i never had to actually type in a new MEID when i had my iPhone replaced under warranty. maybe this is no longer necessary and its only for older CDMA only devices and not needed for LTE. ask verizon

    remove sim card when selling device.
