Looking to pick up an iPhone 5 from Verizon next week. I do have some bargaining power over Verizon but I want to see what a Verizon store can offer as opposed to Verizon on line. My last purchase was a simple one on line but Verizon fucked it up big time. Took me 9 hours on the phone and 3 hours in a verizon store to get it working. I did not get the billing streightened out till this December and the purchase was on July 31st.
All I am really shooting for is to have all service charges and upgrade fees waived.
This is what I have to do:
Add a new iPad3 to the account. Christmas gift to our son.
Upgrade my DroidX to an iPhone 5 with 32gb memory or a Droid Razor Maxx HD and transfer the number to the new phone.
Port my wifes number from Sprint to the DroidX.
With all the associated moving apps around and taking apps off of my wifes iPad and putting them on my son's iPad I think I will be busy. Need to set up and/or move mail accounts as well. This is where the Verizon store can really help, I hope. Another plus is Verizon is winning business from Sprint which is a big deal in the carrier business. The only minus is the amount of work, both Verizon service orders and physicall app work that needs to be completed. And of course teaching my wife how to use a smart phone.
The iPhone 5 will interface better into my Tacoma HU better than the Droid Razor Maxx HD.
The DROID RAZR MAXX HD is actually $50 less expensive than the iPhone.
