Can you have two lines on the same phone and use them at the same time? Physical sim and e-sim?.
These are the ones supported on prepaid plans.  >:(
iPhone 12 (all models) and newer
iPhone SE (2022) and newer
iPad (9th Gen) and newer
iPad Air (5th Gen)
iPad Pro 11-inch and 12.9-inch (2021) and newer
iPad mini (2021)

To segment the market. You can afford to and want the latest and best device, pay up for postpaid.

Verizon had the iPhone 13 on sale for free a couple of weeks ago. Is it likely to go on sale again for about that price? (It seems like at least one of the iphones is always on sale/significantly discounted)?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

FYI - Until Tuesday it is free with a contract.

Any way to have Verizon unlock a phone before 60 days? Want to use it on international trip.

Setting up service for five lines and trying to figure out to be eligible for the Mobile +Home Discount. Does anyone know if the primary account holders have to be identical? (They both have the same address.)

 Hey all, @Dan has always talked about having the grandfathered unlimited plan which I have. But I'm trying to understand what the value of it is. I need to upgrade two phones and it will cost a lot more to buy the phone outright, but if I try and upgrade Verizon is going to make me change my plan. What are the advantages of the grandfathered in plan vs today's unlimited plans?

They're cheaper? And have less of a cc payment penalty.

are they cheaper? If I get the 5G Start plan ($40/mo) for all 6 of my lines then my bill would be significantly cheaper after I switch and I can get much better trade in deals for phones. If I got the play more or do more plan ($50/mo) for all 6 lines then my bill would be the same as it is now plus I get the better trade in offers from Verizon.
The credit card thing is nice but is it worth giving up $500 of trade in value?

How many lines are on your account @Dan ? Also, when was the last time you took a look to see if it was worth keeping the old unlimited plan?

The auto pay discount no longer works if you pay with a credit card....
In the past I would pay most of the balance and save a few dollars for the auto pay (bank account). Now a warning pops up that if you pay any amount with a credit card you will loose your auto pay discount.
