So don't wanna make any bad news for anyone but I called VZW today and talked to them. I'm going to the store to get the Razr tomorrow for my GF so I called and asked about putting the bill on my account just to make sure I'm elgible.
She said yes I'm elgible but the Razr nor the Iphone 4S can't be put on the bill cause they are new high end devices which sucks. She said the Bionic or any other phone could be. So what this means to me, when the Nexus drops and I want to put it on my bill they ain't gonna let us. Its gonna fall into the same catergory as the razr and iphone.
Sry for the bad news but just wanted everyone to have a heads up

If you always seem to have drama in your life, you are probably the one causing the drama.
If customer service representatives or restaurant servers always seem to be rude to you, you are probably the one being rude.
If your computer always seems to be freezing up on you, you're probably doing something wrong.
In my experience, drama begets drama, rudeness begets rudeness, and ineptitude begets ineptitude.
From my experience, I asked this question directly, and I wasn't able to bill it to the account ENTIRELY.
I'm on the family plan but I buy my own phone, but my mother is the account holder and she has horrendous credit. Wouldn't surprise me if that factored in, but I could pretty much only split it into two payments. Half up front, and the other half was put towards the bill. So $150 up front for my Bionic, $150 two weeks later with my next pay check. The credit score thing makes more sense than just letting anyone bill a phone to their account. Also makes sense they wouldn't do it for new phones as they're only out for your money...
I billed my bionic on release day. But I could see it with the I phone. They have a different warranty plan also.

Some of you guys are like...wow.
Bill-to-account is standard in cell phone industry. It is credit contingent. Your credit is graded when you sign up and assigned a letter - usually it's like, A, B, C, and then some others that note prepaid and risk, etc.
IF you're C or above then you can charge any expense to the account up to a certain limit, which the rep can tell you if you ask. In Verizon a C is $750, that much I know.
They're not spread out, it's just added as a bulk charge. Doesn't matter if you call, go online or in store. You do need to tell them that you want to bill it to the account, they won't always proactively offer it. Applies to phones, accessories, tax etc. Discounts apply as well.
EDIT: As I thought. See below...last option at the bottom.
