or i can transfer my upgarde to another line?

You can transfer upgrades. There was a loophole, where you kept a dumb phone line, then bought a new smartphone and moved it to your UDP line. However they recently closed that where if you buy a smartphone the data plan comes with it for two years. However this doesn't close the loophole that you would create. If you have a line already on 2GB tiered data, you wouldn't care if it stayed on 2 GB tiered data for two more years. So you could have two upgrades every two years.

Oh I see what you meant. The thing is I am getting more of these then I can unload. You can only have 5 lines on your account, I have three phones myself. So that leaves 2 lines to move around. I have several people who I buy this for in bulk and recently they're bringing in more then I can unload. Also with the eBay sales people are slow to act. So that leaves me with a line stuck for 2-3-4 days and I can't do anything while they sit and wait to transfer. With only two openings that's a big deal. So that's why I have more coming in then I can handle. That's where the freebies come in. If you can take it over within a few hours of me contacting you, its yours for free. It's win win for everyone in my eyes.


Ok starting to make some more sense. Still not sure where these are coming from...

If I add this to a line on a family account where most phones have unlimited. Will this effect anything of the main account?

Does adding this to an account restart the 2 year contact phone upgrade?

Since most phones are unlimited, I'm assuming that you have an old Nationwide plan? If that is correct, then you can easily add one of these lines. You could add it to a sub-account on your line or you can just add it to your family account.

On your other numbers? The upgrade would not be effected. The line has a two year contract, which after two years will have its own upgrade. The other numbers are not effected.

Spoke to someone on ebay he told me that in order to keep my same Verizon # I need to transfer my # to google voice and the next day can transfer it back to vzw that would mean I would have to pay the early termination free of $350 being that I just going an upgrade
Is there any way around that?

I just did this about 2 months ago.  When did they close the loophole?

There is no way around paying the termination fee if you're going to be closing that line. Taking over a line is just like going to the store and creating a new account/line. The only difference is that you're getting unlimited data which they haven't offered for about three years.

Now depending on your current bill and usage it may make sense to add a UDP line with your current line and make a family plan. Again this depends totally on your usage.

For example, you can create a 700 Talk & Text for $130. That would be 700 mins, unlimited text, for TWO lines and then $30 data on the one line. The second line you can put a "dumb" phone and keep for emergencies or give to an older relative/child that just needs an emergency phone or doesn't want/need a smartphone.

I want to say it was last month, but I honestly forget. They made it that so when you use an upgrade to buy a smartphone the data plan is part of the contract. You can no longer switch it to a dumb phone and drop the extra data package.

There are still ways to use an upgrade on an unlimited data line and keep unlimted data. I recently did it to get the iPhone 6.

The 2nd line is the dumb phone line on a 2 line share plan.

How would you check the account doesn't have a debit linked with it?

My wife and I are in limbo right now as our 2 year contract ended last month.  I'm still working on Verizon to give me 2 free iPhone 5's, waived activation fees, and credit for the taxes and fees (you must pay these up front and they will credit 2 or 3 months later labeled as a good faith credit) to make it a complete wash just as I did 2 years prior.  Hopefully, I could pull it off again. 
I don't know if I am part of a share plan, but I am checking to confirm today.  I do know that I am on the MORE EVERY UNL TLK&TXT with my wife.  Is this considered a "share plan?" 
Also, our total bill per month inc taxes for unlimited talk and text and 500MB+bonus 1GB data (bonus for 12 months) and including 17% off monthly for industry discount = +/-$120.  If we ever go over the data, we would just call to upgrade to the next tier, and do an automatic downgrade at start of next billing period for a prorated amount or sometimes even free.  We've just been aware of our data usage, but I seriously would not mind unlimited.  I'm just trying to understand if it's worth it as I have to buy 2 phones at or close to retail when I get them free on contract with unl tlk&txt for what I stated above.  I assume that this is better for those with children on the same plan or looking to the future when we will be needing more and more data to function.  haha Thoughts?
