    *very important-activate the new phone on the limited tiered line to update the contract for that line (because it is a tiered line, the upgrade does not cause you to choose a tiered package for that line).
    *once the contract is updated on the tiered line, you can put the new phone on any line you want, including your unlimited lines.
    Once you do this I presume the line access charge for each phone remains the same? i.e. $9.99 per month?

    Here's my situation--1 smartphone (mine) on 3G and 2 dumbphones. All were activated at the same time, contract is up in December. Shared family plan on voice, unlimited text, and I have unlimited data.

    If I upgrade to a Maxx HD on one of the dumbphone lines and then do the phone number/line switch, I get to keep unlimited data. I then give my Droid 2 to my son, who would want to have data access--how will Verizon bill me for that data usage on the Droid 2 phone? It's 3G access. Assume the third line remains a dumbphone line.

    I don't care what it is, when it has an LCD screen, it makes it better.

    I let my Unlimited Plan go. I had Droid X & my wife has iPhone.
    They ran the numbers for three months and a 4gb plan was enough to keep me under.
    I saved $40 per month because the Mobile Hot Spot is part of the share plan. (I was paying $20 extra a month for that feature on one phone.)
    That is $360 a year less on my bill.
    Unlimited is just too expensive when they make you pay full price for the next new phone you get.

    Verizon won't activate a smart phone on a dumb phone line. You would have to upgrade that line, presumably your whole contract.

    But give it a try you might find a rep that might do it.

    According to some posters, some reps are onto this and will let it fly.

    You would have to choose a tiered data plan for that line. Because your son will end up keeping your old smart phone on that line, then you would have to maintain the data plan on that line. If you were ever to put a dumb phone back on that line, then you could cancel the data for that line.

    Chances are they will try to talk you into going on their shared data but you will have to insist that you only want to update the one line and keep your line the same.

    Lol! Well some reps actually understand that you want to keep unlimited and go out of their way to help you do it...believe it or not. Not many, but some.

    So, to recap: I transfer a dumbphone upgrade to wifes smartphone line. I then buy the new smartphone and activate on wifes #. I then tranfer that to my line (which is unlimited). Then I put wifes original smartphone back on her line.

    Well I thought I had it figured out, until this post. I have three lines, only my line has a data plan. Are you saying in order for this technique to work one of my other two lines needs to have a (limited usage) data plan on it? Both of these other two lines are currently on a basic pay-as-you-go data plan at $1.99/MB.
    I don't care what it is, when it has an LCD screen, it makes it better.
