    I believe he is referring to the $10 additional line charge, and the $30 additional data charge.

    So she gave him the first phone at $20 and then $40 additional for any more phones added.

    right, the flyer said additional lines $20, which is what I did get since she told me wrong when I called Feb 3 to get the new line... on that call, she said that when she asked, I could get the $20 additional line still, but then after i activated, she called me, and said the request was denied and that I would have to pay $40... I immediately said I needed to talk to someone higher up to get it fixed, and that's when she finally came back and got it taken care of for the line i had just activated, but made it clear that I couldnt add any other lines at the promotion rate because it was over...

    the deal is, you could only get the $20 additional lines during the promotion time... now that the promotion has ended, if you add a line, it will be $9.99 for the line, 29.99 for data...

    It's kinda stupid, and I think now that they have LTE coming out, they should make this promotion standard for 3G lines... then pay extra for 4G... it would give them a definite advantage over other companies that's for sure.

    ha, so I just got another call and they said "unfortunately we cannot apply the promotion to your account and it will be $9.99 + 29.99 for that new line"

    Obviously I was not a very happy customer, and after 15 minutes of telling him how I felt, he said he would try to push it into executive escalation to get it through but couldn't guarantee anything... looks like I am probably going to be an AT&T customer after december if they don't make this happen... seriously Verizon... how hard is it to make an exception after you're told twice that it's taken care of?!?!?!

    I will update everyone on what happens, but anyone that wants to add a line that has this promo, be prepared to pay $9.99 for the line, $29.99 for the data, even though the flyer said $19.99 for additional lines and said nothing about having to add the lines during the promo period...

    This is really odd. I think most of us were told that this promo is always going to be valid for add'l lines as long as you keep it going.

    That's a load of crap man... and to anyone else having any problems with billing, make sure you call the number that was provided with the initial promotion because a regular customer rep has absolutey no clue whatsoever about this plan. One told me the other day she was gonna have to check it out on her next workday and was all excited about it! Lol

    I tried to add another line to this plan, and it was a no. I even called twice, the number on the ad promo, and didn't work either time.
