But Moto X Mayhem 31st 2014 and a two year contract can I buy a verizon phone at Walmart and activate it at Verizon I have to keep the same phone number and have to keep the contract can't get

suggest you use a non contract service like freedom pop. or get yourself a version phone at wall-mart that is not on a contract. for about 50 dollars or less. look I was once under a contract for 2 years and I learn my lesson never again.

also you can FORWARD YOUR CALLS TO ANOTHER PHONE if you like. Their are so may ways to do this.

Also you might check out GOOGLE VOICE. It is free. You can forward your calls and Block calls too. Many features and it is free.

Also FREEDOM POP is a new service and I have been using it for nearly a year.

Why you should never sign another carrier contract
Walking into a Verizon store to buy a new phone may seem like a pretty normal thing to do here in the US, but in other countries that's not the case. An easy way to look at the carrier situation is with the example of roads and cars. When you buy a new car from a dealership they don't also get to decide what roads you can drive it on. You buy the car and decide to drive wherever you want.
US carriers sell you a phone that can only work on their network. They essentially lock the car down to certain roads. In many other countries you simply buy a phone and then decide what carrier to use with it. These are called "unlocked" phones. In the US it isn't as easy because carriers like Verizon and Sprint don't support many unlocked devices. Still, there is a way to take some control away from your carriers: buy phones without signing a contract. Here's why you should do it.

Freedom When you sign a contract from a carrier you are locking yourself to that network and device for 2 years (or however long the contract is). Up front that may not seem like a big deal, but down the road you may regret it. If you want to get a new phone or switch carriers there are pricey fees that you will have to pay. Several carriers have started promotions where they pay the ETF from your old carrier, but this is just another ploy to get you to sign their contract. Don't do it.
If you can buy an unlocked phone you get even more freedom. When you travel to another country you can easily swap in a different SIM card and be good to go. You'll also be able to switch to a new carrier here in the US whenever you would like, assuming they support SIM cards. Unlocked devices offer a new level of freedom and choice.
Cheaper Monthly Bill The biggest reason that signing contracts with phones has become so popular is the price of devices. Most people think that the average smartphone costs around $200. We know that this isn't true. The HTC One M8, for example, costs $600 off-contract. This is the real price of the device. Verizon takes $400 off the price if you sign a contract because they know they will make it back in the long run.
When you buy a subsidized phone you are paying for it every month. It may be cheaper up front, but in the long run you end up paying more. You can avoid this by simply buying the device at full price right from the start. The money you save every month will quickly add up to pay for the full cost of the device. Plus, some carriers even offer special plans for people who bring their own device.
More Control We already mentioned that you will have more control to switch phones or carriers by not signing a contract, but there is even more you can do. When you sign that contract you are like a lobster in a tank. They've already got you. By not signing a contract they will do a lot more to keep you as a customer. You will have more power in negotiating to get discounts and deals. Just call them up and tell them you're thinking about switching. You'd be surprised what they'll do to keep you.
The moral of the story is very clear. If you want control of your device and service don't sign a contract. Look at the big picture and don't let them hook you in with the cheap initial cost. They want your money more than anything. If the carrier situation in the US is every going to get better we have to stop giving them control. T-Mobile has done a pretty good job at shaking things up, but it's not enough. When you buy your next phone consider buying it off-contract. You'll thank me later.


I wish you the best of luck.

I cracked the inside screen and verizon wont give me a new phone and i dont have insurance.

ohhh bad deal there one thing verizon has is the early upgrade which if you are one year into your contract you can pay 20.00 plus the two year sale price for any phone of your choice in return for a new two year agreement if you arent that far in yet and have more than a month remaining to get there I would suggest goign to ebay or amazon and buying one at retail price used you can generally get them much cheaper than verizons retail price and they dont require a contract or if you have any friends or family members with old phones they might sell you cheap til you can hit the ine year mark or keep calling if you are about a month away try to get the little rock center and tell them you want to talk to walter complain complain complain and they may go ahead and let you over ride early also if this line was previously an alltel phone number you can go back to your alltel plan and phone at any time on just this line if you like temporarily just a tip the number one feature to always have with cell phones before txt mins anything is insurance ost phones cost avg 400 to 800 retail
