Thanks again. I am aware they will know it is on the network once it is activated. Believe me if I thought my job would be on the line for activating the phone I would not do it. I've been with my company for 10+ years. I am simply weighing the pros and cons of begging forgiveness vs. asking permission. The policy is not one that I would typically know about if I wasn't BSing with the help desk last week. I would simply call them and say I'm replacing my 8830 on the network and ask for an activation to be sent. If it didn't go through because of the policy I would then take it to the "asking permission" phase.
From all that I have read the 9630 is going to be the replacement phone for the 8830 through verizon anyway and they will eventually have to support it.
I'm just not sure I want to undertake the job of championing an update to company policy to accept the next phase of phones simply because I'm an early adopter of the technology.
