1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Just a quick question I'm sure someone can answer - I have a Motorola Droid right now, a line on my family plan is eligible for an upgrade. Is it possible for me to buy a Droid X using that line's discount, and activate it on my own line? I know the early upgrade promotion says you can't do a buddy upgrade, but this is a NE2 upgrade we've had for about 6 months and just haven't used.

    Secondly - and this is just something I'm curious about, not interested in doing as I am with the first paragraph - I saw another user here say they were going to add a new line just to get a Droid X, and then just use the phone on their own account and strip that new line down so it's just a useless $10/month line. Does Verizon actually allow this? It just seems to me that if you buy a $200 Droid X (after rebate) on a new line, and strip that line down, you'll pay a total $440 over the course of the 2-year agreement. I saw estimates here that a Droid X at launch without contract will be around $600. If that's accurate, couldn't you (in theory) add the new line and purchase the phone at the $440 cost, and then sell the Droid X and make roughly $150 off the whole thing? I don't have an interest in doing that, since it just seems like it would be a hassle, but it seems like something that Verizon would have safeguards in place to prevent people from doing.

    Yes, it can be done. It's called an Alternate upgrade.

    second part is the $350 etf on that $10 line that prevents that from happening
