As the thread title asks, here is my scenario. My family account is eligible for an upgrade in December. My girlfriends account, completely different account than mine, is eligible for an upgrade right now. I want to use this upgrade, but every time I ask the Verizon staff they said it's impossible to transfer from another account.
I know this is false because upon the iPhone 4 releasing, my mom and her best friend went into Verizon and they did it for them. Transferred one of our early upgrades to her friend's account and they both walked out with iPhone 4's.
I just wanted clarification on this and some advice, do you guys know if this is possible? Did the rep just do something they weren't supposed to do when they upgraded my mom's friend to begin with? Any advice on how to word it so I can use my girlfriend's upgrade on my account?
Thanks in advance,
They're willing to accept the terms and conditions of course. If I'm buying the phone on my account with their upgrade, would I not get the 1 year manufacturer's warranty and the option to add insurance if I wanted to? I understand I wouldn't get what my girlfriends plan has..... right?
Basically, your girl friend needs to do the upgrade on her account, activate, then give you the phone. You probably can do it without activation if you call or go to Verizon store after she has it in hand. When you transfer from one account to another(different owners) Verizon no longer honors the warranty. The warranty may be valid through Apple. I believe you can still get insurance from Verizon, though I'd look at Apple or Square Trade.
