    I tried searching on verizons site, but their search thing is TERRIBLE, so I thought I'd ask here.

    Is it possible to add a line to my account and get the Droid X for the $199 price? How much extra does it cost per month for the extra line if I don't change the plan or anything?

    It is possible to do what you want. Call Verizon to verify, but the additional line is $9.99 plus fees and taxes per month for 2 years. Add to that the $30 per month data plan.

    if you dont keep the droid x on that extra line you can cancel the data plan so its only $240 for the two years

    Yep, as long as you have a dumbphone to put on that line, you are good to go. ;)

    I do have a dumbphone.

    My plan was to get the Droid X for the 199 price with adding a new line, then put the Droid X on my main line, and put the dumbphone on the new line I just got.

    That way I can sell my original Droid and have the Droid X on my main line and the dumbphone on my new, 2nd line. I wouldn't mind paying an extra $10/month. Then I will have 2 lines that will be eligible for upgrades in the future.

    Also, is there a way to check ESN numbers online to see if they can be activated?


    Another thing...how would I go about selling my original Droid? How would I "deactivate" my droid? I'm used to AT&T where I can just take out the sim card and be done with it.

    When I go to add a line, do I click on "new individual plan" or "upgrade to family shareplan"?

    You can call and ask VZW if the ESN is good.

    You deactivate the device by removing it from your VZW account either over the phone or online with VZW website. Takes maybe 5 mins to do.

    You can do that, but is the $9.99 plus tax/month worth it? Couldn't you just use that money and buy the phone outright up front then you aren't stuck with an additional line. Just a thought. My big question is, yes this phone will be awesome and has had a lot of hype surrounding it, but wouldn't it be worth just waiting and getting one of the 2ghz beasts that aren't to far away?

    lol yea it will work thats how I got my DROID 1. You figure if you really want it the price is either the same or less than buying the phone out right plus its like you on a payment plan for 2 years with the phone you got lol then after 2 years cancel the line. But yes you do have to have a phone on the other line I have the LG Chocolate on the line my DROID suppose to be on lol

    Yup. The specific device is irrelevant. No need to create a new thread asking this question every time a device is about to be released...

    Do the math.

    Worth is always highly subjective. It's to each person to determine for his/her self.

    I actually did this last summer after my treo broke. Basically this is how it came out...At the time I was on the individual 39.99 400 min plan with 29.99 unlim data for a grand total of 75 or 80 bucks per month (about 69 after my dicount). When I added the line the minimum plan you're allowed with two lines is the 69.99 700 min family share plan plus unlim data for one line 29.99 plus 9.99 for the second line and I currently pay about 118 after my discount.

    So it costs a little bit more than the advertised 9.99. But if you are a person whos already paying for a 700 min plan you're bill won't increase as much when you add a line.

    This is only true if you are already on a family plan. Upgrading from an individual line to a family plan is something like $30 a month more for that second phone (plus the data plan).
