    Activation Fee?

      Is there an Activation Fee when upgrading your phone with the new every two program and extending your contract for another 2 years?

          There is an activation fee everytime you upgrade I believe. I won't bet money on it because I can't pay for my own phone - my father does that.

            No - an activation fee is a one-time fee per line charged only when you start a new line of service.  If you have an existing line and are upgrading to a new phone, activating a different phone, or extending your contract, there is no activation fee.

              Thanks rignu217!  They should waive it if you have been a loyal customer.

                  I'm on the old new every two plan as well, except now it seems that "new" means "$50 off".  I can't get a free phone unless it the absolute bottom line phone.  If there is a fee to upgrade on top of that they might as well not even have the program at all.

                    You are replying to a one-year-old thread, so info. can change.  For example, Verizon doesn't have a New Every Two program any more; it was abolished in January 2011.  Toward the end of the program the $100 credit was dropped to $50.  You only have a limited time to use your credit if you still have one left.  And yes, there is now a $30 upgrade fee.  Lots of threads about both of these on this forum.
