    I signed a new contract with VZ and got a Droid Charge, I have the phone now but have not activated it. I have an old tour that I would like to use until the 9930 or the iphone 5 is released.
    Questions are:
    1. Can I activate an old beat up tour or an older android on my new Verizon account instead on my new Droid Charge?

    2. Can I return the Dorid and get my upgrade credit back?

    3. Will I be docked a $35 restocking fee even with I have not activated the it?

    I bought it from the Verizon site BTW....

    I hope you got it before they switched to tired data plans.
    Sorry I can't answer your question, but good luck.

    They won't charge you the $35 restocking fee unless you opened the box and activated the phone.

    I would ask about getting the upgrade re-creditted. Explain to them you are waiting on a new Blackberry to be released. Just make sure you tell them the upgrade must be put on the account for future reference.

    And you can certainly use an old Tour in the meantime.

    @ californiablackberry - Yes sir.... I ordered it online on the 6th. The email I got had unlimited plan on it. So I think I'm good.

    @chris2k5 - I have the phone but still have not activated it. My only doubt is, I signed up online for the unlimited data on this new droid. What if they come back with, if you activate a used droid/tour and return this new one back to us then your unlimited plan goes poof?

    Not sure how to approach this.

    Best approach would be to call them up and ask them to confirm how this would work out.

    As long as you did not open the phone, you will not be charged the 35.00 restocking fee and as long as you are within your 14 day WFG, you can return the device and get your upgrade reset. If you have a Tour you will still be on Unlimited and will keep if and when you get a new phone.
