    I heard that phones bought online through companies such as Amazon charge a fee if the phone gets transferred to a different line.

    Yep. Pretty spot on. I think you have to leave the phone on that line for 180 days with Amazon or they give you an ETF of their own

    Ok, I was afraid of what other obligations there might be in the fine print with Amazon since the phone is $100 less.

    What about doing this through Verizon online? Any limitation with doing what is mentioned here if going that route?

    No, Verizon, Costco and best buy let you switch your phone to any line you want without a fee.

    I purchased a Maxx HD through Amazon for another number under my family plan that was eligible for upgrade a discounted price. As soon as the phone came in, instead of activating it on the number it was supposed to be activated on, I took it to Verizon and they complied the terms of service for amazon, and without activating it on the other line first, put it straight on my line that I have unlimited data grandfathered in on. No extra fees from Amazon or Verizon. Only fees I have occurred total is the 199.99 from Amazon for the phone and 30.00 for upgrading the other line with Verizon. The activated the SIM Card straight to my number instead of to the other number so it tied the Amazon terms of service to my line with unlimited data. I have no idea how the lady at Verizon did it, but she is a Godsend. So to sum it up, Maxx HD, discounted price, unlimited data, no extra fees.

    My wifes line has unlimited and had an upgrade a few weeks ago. She just got her Iphone last night that I got through Verizon online. When I ordered it I transfered her upgrade to another line we have with a dumb phone on it. Last night I activated it on that other line and 6 hrs later her line is still showing that it has unlimited. I will be keeping an eye on it to see if they try to remove her unlimited in the near future. I hope this works out and they don't remove the unlimited B/C my line has unlimited as well and an upgrade in early Dec. and I want to pick up a Maxx HD.

    Side ? Does Verizon still do early upgrades? It would be nice to not have to wait a month and get the Maxx HD now.

    upgrade/data

    So, my wife and I have smartphones. My line is primary and is unlimited data. Let's say I upgrade her line to galaxy 3 (no plan change). Then I change her phone to my line, would I still keep unlimited data?

    What data package does the wife use? I know when I was at the store my sis has a feature phone non smart with no data.. Sales person told me if she's eligible they would put the Maxx on her line discounted for a minute then switch it to my unlimited line.. Keep price and data package..
