    Adding a 2nd line to my verizon account to get Droid eris?

    My gf wants to get the droid eris, but I have no idea how this second line stuff works.

    Can I get a phone at the discounted price if I add a 2nd line?

    Can we share unlimited text messages for the same price ($20) or do we both have to pay $20?


    I just don't understand how all this works. I'm reading on the verizon site right now but I thought I would ask you guys first.

    You need a family plan to add lines. Assuming you have the family plan, then you can add a line for $10/month to get the discounted phone price, and you'll share all other elements of your plan (texts, minutes). Each line with a smartphone needs its own data plan.

    I'm currently using the cheapest plan ($30 data, $20 unlimited text, $39.99 minutes). How much more would the family plan be?

    No idea, you'll have to look that up on the VZW site. I'm still on my folks' plan, I just write them a check for $100 each month.

    Go to a verizon store. That's what they're for.

    ...or call. I'd suggest just checking the site as it only takes a few seconds.

    You will have to pay for an additional line. Monthly 9.99 for the additional line, 29.99 for data, and if you want a text plan, you will have to pay extra for that too. The only shared thing is minutes.

    So, out of curiousity.

    Would it be possible to open a third line (since I have two), get a new phone, activate it, and then trade it with the first line. At that point, couldn't I simply convert the new line to a dumbphone with a $10 charge per month?

    HTC Incredible - $199 +$240 in monthly fees = $439

    vs.

    HTC Incredible - $599 retail.

    If you add a smartphone to your account, you must pay smartphone fees (data plan). You can use any phone number you want on your account with any phone you have.
