    Yes. In fact, you can activate it (switch ESNs) yourself on the website.
    Make sure the phone is not "locked" if buying elsewhere.

    Absolutely/positively. I got 5 different phones from Ebay (plus the one I
    got when I started my service), and just switch between them online at my
    convenience. (got to the verizonwireless website, log on, click on activate
    phone, enter the ESN, and a few minutes later it is working).

    You do have to get the phones elsewhere and not stick with the $100 for 2
    years stuff, course one of the phones is a Kyocera smartphone, $499 at
    verizon, $200 off Ebay, so I saved $299 bucks and STILL have the $100 credit
    :)
