I have a Verizon cell phone. We have 500 minutes a month, my daughter has unlimited text messaging. I dropped and broke my phone. My wife went to the Verizon store and they said that this phone is no longer available. To get a new phone would be an upgrade and that I would have to get the next upgraded package that is 700 mins a month. We've never even used 300 minutes. The upgraded plan is $20/month more. Do any of you know if I can buy an aftermarket phone and keep the same plan? I can't believe they can force me to upgrade when I don't even use all the minutes of my current plan.
