Its not worth it to add a line UNLESS you can get in a deal like the amazon penny sale.
That $10.00 a month can be substantially less than data charges if you start streaming a decent amount of data. I regularly used 1-1.5GB, now its regularly over 3GB if not 4GB with the Charge. NHL Live, NFL Mobile, Netflix, just a few of the data hogs I use and never really considered before.
Find a friend who wants to get on the Verizon network and rent him/her the line and charge em and put a couple bucks in your pocket.
Anyone else done the add a line, activate on primary with the unlimited data , put a dumb phone on the added line and drop the data package? Seems almost too good to be true. I'm tempted but don't want to be burned.

Keep in mind that unless you can get a good deal like the amazon penny deal you are pretty much paying retail for the phone. $250-300 Subsidized priced + $25-35 Activation Fee + $240 additional line costs over the 24 month contract = $515 - $575 total cost.
I think the whole drop the data package is dependent on the communication between verizon and amazon. My assumption is that there really isn't much after the initial activation. As long as verizon has the add a line under contract, and amazon sees the add a line under contract, there should be no red flag.
Verizon seems to be giving away unlimited data to their long time customers as I had no problem switching things around last night.
I have to say that with the 4g speed I am pretty happy with big red. I did a speed test with a friend who has a spring 4g phone. The bionic with 4g left him in the dust.
Damn you guys are making me jealous. I didn't think to meet the unlimited data deadline when Verizon got "tiered" of offering unlimited data.

I bought my bionic from Amazon on the penny pincher sale and added a line. Went to the store when it arrived and had to buy a new a sim card with my lines number and they switched it to my unlimited data plan. Then I called tech support two days later and called the new line as it was within the 14 day grace period. First lady I talked to said no but then I called back and got a guy from tech support who didn't even ask why.
