Verizon says I'll have NO WARRANTY on my iPone 4 if....
i used the upgrade elgibilty on different account to get an iphone on my line of service.
i wasn't available for any discount and i'm on a business account. are sister company (different business account name) had an upgrade and they let me use it. when i was talking with verizon support about something today, he told me i would have NO WARRANTY on the iPone once it was taken off the account is was sold to.
Is this true?

Yes, it is.
Simply put, the warranty belongs to the whom it was originally sold - if transferred after that, then warranties do not transfer. If you have an issue with the device, you might be better off dealing with Apple directly rather than Verizon.

They ONLY charged when your device it out of the warranty period or if it's something that's not covered.
To the OP you can go here to check out the 1 year warranty that's included on every device. You are not charged anything to take it to Apple.
Apple - Legal
Hopefully there is one nearby and you also get phone support for the first 90 days.

Try Squaretrade instead
To the OP and anyone, If you're really worried about warranty and insurance, might I suggest a viable alternative.
Squaretrade has an excellent warranty and is much better IMO than Verizon's insurance program (Assurion). Here are the details of Squaretrade and why I switched:
-One flat price for 2 years of coverage (normally $125, on sale now for 30% off with code WINTER)
-Covers accidental spills, damage, not functioning properly, etc...
-Buyback program where they will buy your phone from you after 2 years for 20% the retail price, in my case $160, and for $240 after one year.
This beats VZW's insurance program as you have to pay $10.99/month, as well as the $199 deductible for a replacement!! The only thing VZW has on the other warranties out there is that they cover lost or stolen.
If you lose your precious iPhone or allow it to be stolen by being irresponsible, I feel bad for you...lol.
Obviously just my $0.02, but I have found these warranties to be excellent.
