For John, BLUF: Verizon is not the forward leaning 21st Century operation I had expected. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I have a cell phone plan with Verizon. It includes my Wife, myself and two of our children, plus two iPads.
I wanted to upgrade one of the Apple iPhones, which is currently in Illinoi. I thought I could waltz into the Verizon Store in Tewksbury, arrange a deal and have the iPhone holder go into a store out in Belleville, Illinois, and be off with a new phone.
Not so fast.
This is not the 21st Century I had envisioned. No, at the Verizon Store it is still 1999. They are not able to cut such a deal.♠ I could shut down the Cell Plan from here, but I couldn't purchase a new phone.
I think it is time for the Verizon CEO to call for an upgrade to his opersting methods. It might even make him more money.
Regards — Cliff
♠ On the other hand, the previoous week I was able to go to the Tewksbury Verizon store and activate the cell capability on an iPad out in Belleville.
