Looking to join Verizon through Best Buy but..

[ Edited ]

Hi I'm intrested in a 64gb iPhone SE using the $49.99 2 year contract option. I have no interest in paying for the phone monthly. I would also like a basic phone on a 2nd line. I was told that would not be able to add a 2nd line with a basic phone through Best Buy. Please tell me this is not true as Verizon corp stores only have the pay per month option.

Unless you pay for the phone outright at somewhere between $600 to $900 you will pretty much have to go with a monthly payment on the phone on a new 2 year contract. 


Unfortunatly the basic phone give you an issue becuase it does not need a data plan.  As far as I know from trying to get phones for my kids it seems one of the only options for basic phones these days seems to be no contract. 


The $49.99 option is what you pay for the phone first. If you add up the 24 month payments is is almost the price of the phone.

Hi Willie, 


It's awesome to hear you're interested in an iPhone SE and a basic phone with Verizon! While the iPhone SE shouldn't pose any issues with a 2 year contract, you are likely to run into some trouble with the basic phone you mentioned.


If we and Verizon have advised we would not be able to add a basic phone to your plan, unfortunately it doesn't seem like it would be a possibility, and I would suggest looking into the prepay options as suggested by Verizon. I understand this may not be what you were hoping to hear, and I apologize for any disappointment that it may cause you.
