    A little dilemma... help needed

    My family has a family plan. Mom, dad, sister, me. We don't have Droids. We all want Droids. 3 of the 4 lines aren't eligible for an upgrade. What do we do?

    The Verizon Store guy said we'd have to cancel all our lines, then buy the phone at full retail, THEN pay for a plan, THEN add data. That comes out to (500x4) = 2000, plus 200 for a 1400 minute plan with all the txting stuff, then $120 for our data plans.

    That's a little ridiculous, especially since Verizon offered me an early upgrade to the Droid in the mail (which I lost... )

    What can I do guys?

    Upgrade to droid as your eligible. Maybe talk to a supervisor in store or on phone, explain that youll be buyin 4 droids (considerable profit for verizon) maybe theyll be willing to do it.

    In addition, remind them of the profit they will make from 4 data plans.

    Agreed, when it comes to a situation like yours, the smaller reps most likely can't help you. You'd have to talk straight with a supervisor. Do as dragoro said and tell them that you have an early upgrade on one line but you want to buy 3 more, they might be able to work out a deal with you. Though i'm not sure if they will sell you all 3 for early upgrade price. You never know though until you talk to them. Plus it's christmas time.
    Resistance is futile.

    You don't have to get a 1400 minute plan unless you need that much. We have 3 phones on a family plan and Verizon actually sent me a letter saying that I could save $10 by going from 700 to 450 because we never go over that in minutes and we mostly call each other which is free. The 450 will be $59, plus data, insurance etc.

    We do need 1400 minutes, as my dad will be using this as a business phone and I as a student.

    Thanks for your help guys! Any more suggestions will be welcome.

    I would upgrade one phone and give it to Dad. Then cancel the other three lines completely. Then buy new droids with new lines for $200 each. As long as you can live with a new number this will work for you.
