    Hi folks, I have a question about changing rate plans on Verizon:

    I currently have a family plan with unlimited texting, but I want to opt out of that since we hardly text; I want to switch it to a regular family plan without texting. However, I want to avoid extending a two year contract (our contract is actually already over and I'm just waiting for new iphone news).

    Does anyone know if changing plan rates requires a two year contract extension?

    I dont think so.
    You only extend your contract if you get a subsidy on a new phone.

    Instead of just waiting for guesses here, why don't you call Verizon and get a definitive answer?

    Attitude was necessary because...? And actually, I don't know of anyone on this forum who would be guessing at the answer, when it clearly is a no, there is no contract extension for changing a feature on a plan.

    I am planning to confirm with Verizon, but I wanted to be as informed as possible going in. Personally, I necessarily fully trust Verizon reps; in my experience, they'll try anything to get you into a 2 year contract.

    Thanks for the answers.

    I've never had any trouble adding or removing things from my plan and never had to initiate another two years.
