    Couple Questions adding Droid to my line

    So my gf is on her family plan and is planning on getting off that and on her own.

    Would it be smarter to get on my plan?

    Wasn't there something a while back that would give us a free Droid or Eris for those who got the phone on opening day, honoring the buy one get one free deal?

    Any help is appreciated!

    There is a "Buy One, Get One" Free offer now. Buying a Droid will get you a Droid, but I don't believe they have to be tied to a Family Share Plan. Verizowireless.com would be your best choice to answer that part of your question.

    Or just go into the VZW store and talk to them. We aren't VZW employees.

    I really wasn't trying to be a jerk about that. A friend's son did this same thing and then broke up with the girl. They were on a lower minute plan with restricted data and needless to say she really ran up the bill after the relationship ended. Luckily he was able to cancel the phone and eat the early term fee. At the time I think it was around $175 bucks, now I think its double that..

    Sounded like good advice to me. You aren't married so if you both break up, guess who gets to pay her bill until the contract is up? She should stick with her current family plan unless the plan administrator doesn't want her to renew or it isn't meeting her needs.

    I'm on a family plan with my wife and in laws because we don't use many minutes so it benefits all of us to group up as a family. If I wasn't married, I would (and I did) have my own minute plan. That way should something happen, you covered your bases to protect yourself.

    "We aren't VZW employees" could be a response to a lot of questions on this board. This is just an easier, friendlier way of getting responses. Don't respond if you don't have an answer.

    True, but it wasn't a question of advice in those terms. I know the risk and I was just asking specific questions about the deal.

    I'm not sure the BOGO deal lasts this long. You would have to contract Verizon as was mentioned but I doubt they would still give it to you. There are many places that have the Droid for $50 which is very reasonable, I'd go that route.
