    Used iPhone

    It makes me sad to say that I have to finally accept that my Droid X from over 2 1/2 years ago is going to need to be replaced.

    I still have that wonderful unlimited Verizon data plan and hate to get rid of it at least until I retire in 3 years. I have to stream music to keep my sanity.

    Any of you every buy a gently used iPhone and from where? We have everything Apple (sorry love it) and think I may as well get the iPhone.

    A work around to keep my unlimited plan would be even better?
    It was my first look, baby that's all it took

    Apple sells refurbished iPhones direct from their site and you can still keep your Verizon plan.

    Well, I looked last night and today (thinking I may have missed something) and do not see any refurbished iPhone's. Everything else is there.....

    Try the 4s -- not refurbished but free with an existing contract :)

    May be best to go to the Verizon site and see what iPhone upgrade options they will give you on your plan.

    Phone upgrade isn't my problem......... losing my unlimited data plan is huge!! I stream music at work and just don't want to pay more. That is my only hesitatiion to get a new phone. I do know I would want nothing under an iPhone 5 though. The camera is terrific on my daughters phone.
    Thanks for the tips John.

    That's why you want to do this through Verizon -- you should be able to keep the plan and get the upgrade. Just stop into any store and see what they can do for you.

    Verizon made my wife switch from unlimited to 2gb when she upgraded with discount to Samsung 4s.
    they told her to keep her unlimited she would need to pay full price or use another phone that she already had (used)

    So why can't Mother just go buy a used one on Ebay?
    "New" phone. Keep data plan. Done.
