Upgrade Fee

I am trying to avoid paying an upgrade fee. 

If I pay off my device and then purchase a new phone without going through the "upgrade" process will I still be charged an upgrade fee?

Getting the device at all through Verizon is going to get an upgrade fee -- same for getting it at any store where your account is accessed. This includes Costco, Best Buy and Apple.

Get it without a SIM card so you don't get an upgrade fee.

Walk into Best Buy and tell them your prepaid and what phone you want.  You pay full retail, no fee, and swap your own SIM card, set up and data transfer yourself.

Adri1. Now is a great time to upgrade your phone, we're here to help. The good news is that the upgrade fee is a one-time fee when you purchase a new phone from us. If you purchased your phone online, this will automatically take 50% off the upgrade fee. For more information about our upgrade fee, see question number two by visiting, http://spr.ly/66031EFg1.
