Okay so long story short, I have a very old flip phone currently and the number is on a month by month add on to a family plan. On order to get an upgrade to another basic phone we have to get the two year contract and pay a 30 dollar upgrade fee. My question is if I buy another basic phone from Amazon, and then switch the number to it will I have to pay the upgrade fee. The reason why I as about Amazon is because when you go to buy it has selections and one is to upgrade your contract. What about if i bought it from perhaps Ebay? thank you in advance for all of your help.

If you purchase a phone at full price, it shouldn't require a contract extension. If it's a "free" phone, or has a discounted price, then it most likely is considered an upgrade.
If you purchase the phone at full price from Amazon or eBay, you can call Verizon Wireless and tell them you want to switch phones, which is considered an "ESN Change". They should be able to assist you with that. If they say there is a charge, ask them if they can waive the fee. They might have the ability to do that.
