Buy a phone at full price and activate it on Verizon?

So I'm on the Edge plan and I want to buy a Nexus 6P at full price from the Google store. How much would it be to get a new phone number, SIM card etc. and add it to my account? Thanks, I really have no idea how to do any of this stuff.

You're wanting to add a line to your account or just replace the phone you're currently using with the new one? A SIM card is free if you get it from a corporate store or call Verizon to have one shipped. How much it would cost to add a line depends on your current plan...if you have to pay a deposit for the new line...but if you're just wanting to replace your current phone with the new one that shouldn't cost you anything. I've never been charged for swapping phones.

I want to add a completely new phone, not replace anything.

Then that would depend on your current plan and if you would have to pay a deposit for the new line.

How much do you think it would be? I may be wrong, but I think I'm on the Edge plan?

For most plans there is a $40 activation fee to add a new line to the account.

No monthly fees? Just a one time payment and I get a new phone number and SIM card?

You will also have to pay the monthly access fee...which again depends on what plan you're on. SIM card is free as mentioned as long as you get it from a corporate store or by calling Verizon.

The Edge plan is not a service plan. It is a device payment installment agreement to spread the cost of the device over 24 months. Your service plan is called the More Everything Plan or the Verizon Plan with unlimited voice, text and a sharable bucket of data for all the lines on your account.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
