is it confirmed that 2 year upgrades are even gone for grandfathered plans? any ways around it?
I havent found one after pretty extensive research. If someone does have a way I would love a PM if they dont want it publicized

Nobody here has this plan yet to test if prepaid credit card payments work?

Anyone know the estimated taxes for 4 lines in NY?
Any reason I can't use dumb phones for some lines?

i called yesterday and one rep told me that the free phone being offered needs to be used, not just line active; three rep told me that the line just needs to be active, and a fourth first said goes by line, then said needs to be actually used.
of the two that said it needs to be used one said for 30 days and one said for 45 days.

one of the reps who said the line needs to be active but actual phone doesn't need to be used marked that on my account, would that be enough, in case i am charged for it, since i want it as a backup?

and am i able to give it to a friend to use, even though it's in a two year contract?

So is it confirmed that 2-year contract renewal for grandfather lines are gone?

I guess it depends on the plan that you are on, but for my plan the 2 yr contract thing was a big hoax.

On my plan, once you get past your 2 yr contract (and are month to month) the line cost drops to $20. If you want to upgrade your phone with a 2yr contract they will offer a "subsidized" phone (lets say $200 upfront for the phone) but then raise your line cost to $40 per month. In the end of the day that's basically the same cost as the month to month plans that they are pushing without any upfront cost.

On my plan I pay $10 per line for line access and got subsidized phones. But that is now a thing of the past and are making me do monthly payments for new phones and the line access fee goes up to $20

My account has a CC for auto pay and I'm eligible for a discount.
CC @Dan
I wasn't sure if anyone ever confirmed that for you so I'm just letting you know.
