    We all know the Verizon Edge program is a rip off. Here is another supposed solution to upgrading early at the subsidized price.

    So I talked with a Verizon rep at my local store and he is going to help me get the Z30 at the subsidized price even though my contract is not up (Z10). (Of course when they release the device)

    Our account has an iPad on it that I put on without a contract. They only give a $100 off the iPad's for adding them, which again is another ripoff.

    Here is the steps as I understand them.

    1. Upgrade the iPad line to the Z30.
    2. Move the Z30 to my Z10 line.
    3. Change my iPad line back to the data only and put the iPad back on.

    Now the only difference is that my iPad is stuck on a 2 year commitment at $10 a month. My understanding is that this method works with dumb phone lines too.

    Have any of you done this before?

    Heck if this works I have two more iPads on my account. New phone every year!

    Maybe this should be moved to the Verizon area. Sorry.

    that should in theory work, you might have to pay the $40 for voice/data for a month before switching the ipad back to data only $10, ive switched between my 9930 and z10 several times because my work isnt going to bes10 and havent configured airwatch for blackberry yet. they dont give me any trouble about switching phones, just takes a few minutes, and that is going between 3g and 4g, for you, 4g swaps should just be a sim card swap away. also my 9930 is technically under contract till January, and they dont care that im switching devices, as long as the plans are compatible with the devices they will do the swap.
