Sooooo... as someone mentioned in the article comments I linked, would I be able to just buy whatever phone tomorrow, initiating a contract under the double data rate, and return it on the 21st and grab the SGS3 and keep my extra data? All these carriers have no risk 14 day trial periods and such right?
Well yesterday I went to Costco and bought 2 HTC Rezounds to start my contract with VZW. I had to get off of Sprint because in my area it blows. While I was in Hawaii, it was great, but where I live now sucks. So I went ahead and started my contract with VZW so that I can get the double your data before it ended. I have a 90 window with them, not 14 to exchange my phone. I have 14 days to return and cancel my contract, just like VZW does though. If I return it after that, then I am subjected to the ETF though. Costco has a mail-in-rebate for activation, which makes it free!, and they also give you an accessory pack for each phone for free. When I want to go get the SGS3, I will just exchange the phone and accessories, for the new SGS3 phone and accessory pack. I can't wait to get my new phone!
