I got a new phone/contract from verizon earlier this year and I'm looking to upgrade the phone (primary thing I want is a keyboard). I am under the contract of my parents (18 in college and never had a job ) so I was wondering how the fuck would I go about getting a new phone? There's a VZW store about 3 miles from my school, and I'm planning to go there tomorrow to look at phones. My parents don't really care about me getting a new phone, but I'm not sure how contract and all that stuff works? What is VZW's upgrade policy and can I just go and get the new phone myself or would I have to have to account owner with me to sign me over or something?
