Verizon Store, Authorized dealer or web?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by JustMe, Jul 8, 2004.

    Okay, one more question. Now that I am somewhat armed with
    knowledge (yeah, right!), is it best to deal directly with a Verizon Store,
    a Verizon authorized dealer, or Verizon on the web? Where are the
    best deals to be found?

    Thanks again.

    Deals?!?!??! you actually put verizon store and authorized dealer in the
    same sentence as deals!?!?!??!?!??!?!

    Verizon Wireless sells airtime/contracts/service, the stores, kiosks, and
    authorized dealers sell phones (that have to be marked up enuf to pay for
    the store/salaries/taxes/utility bills etc). You can almost always find a
    brand new, in the box, never activated, verizon ready phone from many many
    many other resellers for a LOT LOT LOT less than you would ever get it for
    at a rip off store.

    My suggestion is to go to a store to get a contract/service and whatever
    phone you can get absolutely free, then get whatever phone you really want
    elsewhere and just activate it on the service you already have.

    Numbers.. how bout a brand new Kyocera 7135 Smartphone is $599 ($499 with a
    2 year contract) from a Verizon store, or on the web yet you can get a brand
    new/never activated one elsewhere for $250, activate it for free on the
    verizon website, and use it on your contract instead of the free phone you
    got. That's at least a 50% savings. Some others are more or less, but always
    way cheaper than a verizon store/kiosk.

    You can actually get a contract directly from Verizon, and never go into a
    store in the first place, but it's easier to go into a store to get a
    contract/local phone number/free cheapo phone etc. and then get the phone
    with the features you want and activate it on the contract you already have.

    Numbers.. how bout a brand new Kyocera 7135 Smartphone is $599 ($499 with a
    2 year contract) from a Verizon store, or on the web yet you can get a brand
    new/never activated one elsewhere for $250, activate it for free on the
    verizon website, and use it on your contract instead of the free phone you
    got. That's at least a 50% savings. Some others are more or less, but always
    way cheaper than a verizon store/kiosk.

    You can actually get a contract directly from Verizon, and never go into a
    store in the first place, but it's easier to go into a store to get a
    contract/local phone number/free cheapo phone etc. and then get the phone
    with the features you want and activate it on the contract you already have.

    Deals?!?!??! you actually put verizon store and authorized dealer in the
    same sentence as deals!?!?!??!?!??!?!

    Verizon Wireless sells airtime/contracts/service, the stores, kiosks, and
    authorized dealers sell phones (that have to be marked up enuf to pay for
    the store/salaries/taxes/utility bills etc). You can almost always find a
    brand new, in the box, never activated, verizon ready phone from many many
    many other resellers for a LOT LOT LOT less than you would ever get it for
    at a rip off store.

    My suggestion is to go to a store to get a contract/service and whatever
    phone you can get absolutely free, then get whatever phone you really want
    elsewhere and just activate it on the service you already have.
