    Just a quick q, does vzw prorate etfs from alltel legacy plans?

    I have a family line that never gets used unless someone dials a wrong number. Even if it cost $175 to etf, it'd be cheaper in the long run compared to when I can actually cut the line off without etf.

    Also will this affect my account negatively?

    Verizon i believe begins to prorate the ETF after 12 months of a 24 month contract, and the way they do so is by lowering the rate by $5 a month.

    Ending the line will have no negative affect on you or your account, besides the fact that you are out the $175 lump sum.

    Wow thanks alot!

    Well it's not even been 12 months. At $24 (with tax) a month, I can't even begin the new every 2 until 2-2011. That's atleast $336 in extra line fees on a phone we don't use.
    We got this phone just to get a deal on a BB for my 2nd line (hubby's phone).
    So I guess you can see how $175 or so would be tons cheaper in the long run than to keep paying for an unused line.

    Thanks again!

    If you are cancelling a line under an Alltel contract even though you are now a VZ customer I believe you will pay $200 and they do not prorate.

    Doesn't matter. 20 months at 20$ is 400$.

    That's a savings of atleast $200 in the long run.
