    I just got off the phone with them (success!) and made sure to ask about this. The nice lady I spoke with was very explicit in that this will end in one year. Once that year is up your plan will go back to just the way it was before.

    My rep stated that I was good for two years with this new plan unless I misheard him.

    I called the number a couple hours ago and asked about it...the rep asked if I had received a call or mail about it and I said I received a mailing regarding it (of course, I didn't...just saw it over on Engadget and here). But I guess everything checked out because she switched me over, no questions asked. She did say that I'd need to extend my contract for another year...I was fine with that...since my contract would've run out July 2012, I figured it would've bumped me up to 2013. Nope...the contract runs out November 2011 now.

    Soooo...I should be able to start saving about $20/month now on my cell service. And getting the same features...just adding unlimited texting. I already had 450 minutes and unlimited data, and had 250 texts for $10. This is certainly a nice change for me.

    No joy...

    Well I called 3x now. 3 different CSR's. 3 different reasons...
    • Didn't receive the email directly
    • Current plan is not close enough to renewal
    • Existing corporate discount could prohibit eligability
    So I called my corporate executive @ VZ. She explained that she also had no knowledge of this plan or offer. It seams VZ operates in many silos or tiers and they don't talk to each other. So the corporate tier didn't know about it and this offer is through the business continuity office/tier.

    Looks like they are making very little excpetions in some cases for who the offer is extended to. Kinda stinks since this plan is $10 more than what Sprint offers for a comparable unlimited talk/text/data/M2M family plan but a lot cheaper than having 2 unlimited plans w/data for VZW now.

    Oh well.. COD BlOps drops at midnight, that'll cheer me up. :icon_ banana:

    0/6 now.

    Same reply.

    Need an email/flyer. I asked nicely if she could just review my account and see if any exceptions can be made and nada.

    She said that I don't qualify since I'm on an old 700 family share plan w/ 1 add'l line and two data packagages. I don't qualify.

    Whatever. Would have been nice. Would have gotten twice as many minutes, unlimited text vs. 250, and still saved $12 bucks a month.

    :(

    I just got off the phone, and hit the same roadblock. I'm planning on dropping my 3rd line (dumb phone) soon, and he did say that once I drop the 3rd line, I should call back and plead my case. So that's what I'm going to do. I basically told him that the only select people get the discount policy was crap and being a long time customer it was pretty disappointing to see this happen. That's when he told me to call back when the account is changed. we'll see....

    This is exactly how mine shows up as well. And now I can upgrade everyone on my plan to smart phones and it won't add a dime to my plan. This is a sweet deal for people with multiple lines.

    I just talked to a regular VZW rep at *611 today, after I switched my plan to this yesterday. She said the promo pricing stays until December of 2038!

    I told her I would probably still be a VZW customer haha.

    Yessss

    I just got off the phone and had a wonderful rep named Peggy. Got the offer which will save me and the fam about 50 or 60 bucks for 5 lines, and now can get the teenager a smartphone without the extra 30 bucks. Thanks to whoever posted this. 877.873.3278 Her extension was 3210. you can try and see if it works, but she did say that it is exclusive to certain areas and you have to extend your contract by a year if you have a contract that is up in a year, but you can keep the new in 2 upgrade. Very happy.dancedroid,:icon_ banana: Im in Stokesdale NC,
