is it a used car dealer type atmosphere or do they pretty much leave you alone?

I'm currently on a plan with my family (Parents and sister), i would have to pay 30 bucks for the data part of the plan. the rest my parents pay for. I was just wondering typically how much the iphones cost, if it means anything i'm overdue for an upgrade.....

They pretty much leave you alone unless you are asking questions. Also, if you say your just looking and your phone now is perfectly fine, they'll leave you alone. I was also the only one in the store when I went. I also ended up buying the phone here in Arkansas, not in Fargo where I spent most of the time researching.

It probably depends upon the store. I've only been in an actual Verizon store maybe once, and if you make it clear that you're not looking for their input, they should leave you alone.

I wouldn't just outright buy a phone you decide upon there. If you decide upon a phone, I'd check around for any other store ads as well as Verizon's website (they often have different deals online, and generally have free next day or two day shipping on phones) and Amazon Wireless. Verizon, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Amazon, and anyone else who sells Verizon service will give you the same plan, but might have a different price on the phone.

Make sure they've looked at the Family Data Share plans that Verizon finally introduced if they're not already on it. Depending upon usage, they might save some money that way and you might be able to talk them into passing that savings on to you.

I did notice the family data plans they have.....i should look into that.

EDIT: However my parents won't be betting smart phones so that probably won't help me very much.

You don't want a Blackberry like me? It's as relevant as a Sidekick!

There is always a mod lurking. Always. I'm confident in that. Except the time we got to 49 pages.

Honestly, I was about to go to bed and thought "you know, I should check and make sure the OT Thread didn't get killed."

Sadly that's true.

I was deliberately not posting in hopes that Gopher would go to bed without killing this thread.

In regards to the Iphone v droid discussion, I just switched from IPhone to Galaxy S3. Best decision I've made in a while.

Not taking anything away from Apple, their phones are GREAT, but the S3 lets me do much more than I could with an IPhone.

Easiest way to look at it though is: Have you owned a Smartphone before? If not, I suggest going with an IPhone. More user friendly and easier to operate. A great starting Smartphone. Once you have a good feel for it, then down the road switch to a droid.

When I switched, I was lost on certain things I could do with my phone. I never really felt "lost" when I got my IPhone.

Just my 2 cents.
