Do I have to activate a new phone?

    My contract is about up and I want to renew. I'm due for a phone upgrade but
    not 100% sure I want a new one. If I upgrade through the web and renew my
    contract is there any problem if I never have the new phone activated and
    just keep using my old one? That way I have the new one as a spare for one
    of our family members (all on Verizon).

    Thanks.

    Your new phone will be active as soon as activation/programming is complete,
    but you can switch between the phones at any time on Verizon's website or at
    the store. Currently there is no charge to do so on the website; there may be a
    charge to do so at the store.

  3. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your question but you do realize you don't have
    to do anything and as long as you don't want to change anything you can just
    let your contract run out and all stays the same. Wait till there is
    something you do want and than make a change.
