    My two year contract with Verizon expires in a few days.

    I am happy with my service but does anyone know what kind of deal they give when your 2 year contract expires as it pertains to buying a new phone?

    Can anyone recommend a good phone that uses Verizon.

    Right now I have an LG camera phone that I got in Dec 2003. It's been a decent phone but I really need a speakerphone option. Also the battery/charging has been acting funky the last few months.

    Any suggestions on a good quality phone with speakerphone/camera/Internet access?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm in Central NJ if that matters.

    I am in the same situation. I called Customer Service last week and with the "New Every Two" you will receive $100 credit off the discounted rate of the phones. You should be able to get just about any phone (minus the Moto E815) for free. You must sign another two year agreement.

    I just got back from the Verizon store. After some short research I decided to get two Motorola E815 phones and get another two year contract.

    I got the 1400 minute family plan for something like 90/mo which includes unlimited talking between Verizon users.

    The phones weren't free however.....after rebates and $100 off the primary user's phone it still came to $200 total for both new phones.

    Does this sound reasonable?

    Phones seem to be pretty good. I already sent my wife a video message!!!

    You could do better if you don't mind getting a new phone number. Activate a new line of service (search the internet for better deal stay away from verizon store/website as they won't give you a good deal). I got a free E815, bluetooth headset and car charger after rebates. The key is you have to get a new account meaning you can not port your old verizon number to a new verzion account. Ditched your old expired contract. Now you have a free phone with 2 years contract but the downside is that you can not keep your old number. But if you want to keep your old number, then port it to another carrier, you still get a new free phone (search the net).

    It does not make much economic sense to sign a 2 years extension and get $100 off a new phone. Me want more than $100!;)
