    Upgrading to Droid 2 Global help

    Ok, so I want to get a Droid 2 Global but I'm not eligible for an upgrade and don't want to pay all the money for it. But, my Dad is eligible for an upgrade, so if he upgrades to the Droid 2 and gives it to me, how would I go about doing this? My Dad however wants to keep his current number and his current phone, but I don't mind if my number changes. Can someone please explain to me how I would go about doing this?

    Actually u can do as I did if you are on the same plan... Under accounts he can transfer the upgrade to your phone number, that way he can keep everything the same and u get a new phone

    Even at verizion you can transfer upgrade... It will help ur dad feel better that his phone will be left alone... Him having piece of mind helps you get ur phone faster

    So he transfers the upgrade to my phone number, and I just activate it and when I do activate it, it will be on my phone number and my plan?

    Ok, but wouldn't Verizon not allow to kinda cheat through their system just to get a free phone by just basically saying to them "I want to upgrade my phone but put it on my sons number"? Or, what did you say to them in order to get this to work?

    verizon doesnt care what you do with the phone after upgrading. they just want you locked in on another contract.

    does your dad have data? it wont work if he doesnt because then hes going to have a data charge on his account for 2 years.

    Go the way jon said... Have him upgrade... And have his phone activated then go to the next close store and have them switch numbers.... Or go home and turn ur phone off and *228 the droid and activate it under your number, and activate his old phone back on his number and you will be ok... Otherwise if you do it all together they could want you to get your own phone.... Depends on if they are jerks or not

    That is true.... Data can b a pain when it comes to upgrading and switching.... I got my DX, but I had the Omnia 2... My mother in law had to upgrade her line to switch... Luckly we r on employee plan...
