Okay, so my phone that I've had for a while has some major cosmetic damage and I would like to buy another phone without adding to our contract. (Due to being grad student and moving around my parents and I decided to get a family plan to make sure that we can stay in contact, no matter where I'm at). Anyways, I was told that maybe I could get a phone off of ebay. I've personally never shopped at ebay. We are with Verizon. If I bought one from there and it said it was a Verizon phone, what would I have to do to make the new phone work???? Also, has anyone done this or have a better idea...maybe a real store, instead of ebay.
