    I'm not a Verizon customer I'm on Sprint but, I know that when I order phones that they get billed to my account. Maybe you can ask Verizon if they can change it to that way.

    I believe you have to pay a minimum on the phone and the rest can be billed to the account.

    Did you recently establish Verizon service? As long as you're not a new customer, and if you're not behind on payments, you should be able to bill to your account.

    I've had my account for 5 years and have never missed a payment and when I upgrade I am able to bill the entire amount to my account and it is not due until my next payment is due on the account.

    I've had them do that to my account a few times. Just depends on the length you've been with them and of course your payment history. I've been with them over a decade and have never been late on a payment. Just call and ask, it won't hurt anything. GL

    Sprint quite doing that recently. You can no longer bill equipment to your account with them.

    I stopped working at VZW in 2007, we had already stopped ALL customers from billing things to their account (other than corporate accounts) you MAY be able to put small stuff on it if you were a higher tier phone plan customer, and had been around a while, but that was at the discretion of the store mgr at the time.

    Oh, well that is bad news. Whatever its fine I haven't missed a payment either so I'm sure I can sweet talk them

    I'm on Verizon, and I always bill to my account. It gives me time to sell my old device, and pay it off. I hope Verizon doesn't ever do away with that.

    If it's anything like last year when the iPhone 4 rolled out on Verizon and when I worked as a custoemr service representative. Apple will not allow the purchase to be billed to the account, you have to have pay up front. Sorry if that will cause you to miss out on the purchase.

    That's weird! When I bought my 4s I went in the store to do it, and the rep getting me organized asked if I was paying now or if I wanted it added to my bill. I paid immediately so I'm not sure if it wouldn't have worked if I tried to add it to the bill, but when I got my 4 in Feb I bought it online, had to pay immediately, and wasn't allowed to use a gift card!

    You bumped a month old topic, VZW may have changed the policy now that the rush has calmed down.

    Interesting, because I've billed a phone to my account last year, and accessories this year.

    Yeah, I billed my 4S to my account, and my Zagg protector. I bought it from a corporate store.

    Billed my 4s in and out on launch day in 15 min ... And used a alternate upgrade

    Depends on your history and if you have had a service disconnect before for non payment

    Every account actually has a dollar limit depending on your history with them .. Some more than others that why answers are varying here ...last I checked I could bill like a max of 700 or 800
