What happens when contract expires?

    My Verizon wireless phone 2 year contract expires in January. Do I need
    to sign up for a new customer agreement or what happens if I do
    nothing? I like my current agreement which includes free night and
    weekends and would prefer to keep it as is. I have a LG 4400B which I
    like to continue to use.
    Any suggestions would be helpful thanks.

    In most cases, you will continue month-to-month under your current
    plan. Exceptions are promotional plans where the free (fill in blank)
    expire at the end of the contract term, but I haven't seen one of
    those in a while.

    So, no, you do not have to sign a new agreement, unless you want to
    upgrade your phone. But beware, I believe there the newer "New Every
    Two" plans require you to redeem them within a set period of time
    after expiration of your current contract, else you lose the NE2
    credit (which I think is utter bullshit). Refer to your original
    contract for details on that.

    Generally speaking, you'll continue month to month with the current
    contract terms. Don't worry though, Verizon will *definitely* be in
    touch to remind you that your contract is up.

    They didn't in my case. My two year contract expired in June and I've never
    heard a word from them. My feelings are hurt.

    Just remember, once you fulfill the term of your original contract,
    you're under no obligation to sign another. You can go month to month
    for as long as you chose.

    Some aggressive salesman at Verizon my lead you to believe otherwise.

    when your agreement expires you'll be on a month-to-month agreement.
    same plan, same costs, etc. if you're happy with your phone(s) and
    happy with your plan and service then you need do nothing. if you get
    a new phone or want to make changes to your plan you'll be asked to
    sign a new X-year agreement.

    Re: What happens when contract expires?-100 minute bonus?

    I have a bonus 100 minutes that came with my family share plan. Will I keep
    or lose it when my contract expires?

    I can attest to that. My contract (1 year) expired in March, and
    they were calling me once or twice a day up until about a month ago,
    when I practically begged them to take me off their list, and I'd call
    them when i was ready for a new phone. I went thruogh the same thing
    with 10 calls (5 days) and they havent called me back since.

    I enjoy my service, my converage is superb. but I used my phione
    less than 10 minutes a month. My current phone works, and I have the
    last 3 phones Ive used. Theres no reason for me to upgrade and get
    a new phone/contract until everything I have is broke. I dont enjoy
    carrying it and dont enjoy using it. its for emergencies. i dont need
    the latest and greatest.

    Some promos are timed. Usually it's 1 year or 2 years for
    those involving minutes. Some involving txt messaging are
    shorter or have a specific end date. If you look at your contract
    or on the web look at Service Profile in the section for Promotional
    Details, subsection Current it will list your active promos and will
    indicate if they expire or not. Mine looks like this:

    Beginning on 01/03/05: 100 Bonus minute promotion 2y
    Beginning on 01/03/05: Unlimited night & weekend minutes


    Note that the 100 bonus minutes has "2y" after it indicating
    that it expires in 2 years where the unlimited N&W has no
    expiration. When a promo expires VZW could end it.

    In the last 6 or 7 years I have not heard of *any* cases where
    VZW discontinued anyone's promo minutes when the promo
    expired. It's pretty much always the case that you can get
    more total minutes for less cost with the current plans anyway.

    This could change but you can be fairly confident that no,
    you won't lose the bonus minutes when your contract expires
    and you go month-to-month.

    If those last three phones do not have aGPS, they will not let you
    reactivate them. You do not have any backup phones.
