    Called the number in OP.... didn't try to pull over anything... every time it comes back that my mobile number was not sent the offer. Which is crap, since plenty of others have bypassed this road block.

    One of the reps was about to set it up only to pop back in and throw out the red flag.

    Do you use your Friends and Family numbers??? You have up to 10 slots to fill with frequently dialed numbers that are not Verizon. I have mine filled and I have four lines two of which are teenage girls and I do not go over the 1400 mins. (and these are our primary phones, no land lines in my house).

    This plan saved me 80 bucks. I am soooo stoked. My base plan was costing me $260.00 (1400 mins, 4 lines, 4 smart phones with data pkgs). Now my base is 179.99.

    To those that are being told its regional. I am in Arizona and I was told this is a nationwide promotion. So call back and speak with a supervisor if you have to to get it.

    I was asked where I heard it from since I did not get the email and I told them that I heard about the promotion on DF and the girl giggled and said good for you.

    Exactly right. I also tried to convey this message in my reply too.

    I think it all depends on the rep you get. It's apparent some are 'by the book' and some don't seem to mind extending the offer.

    I haven't been fortunate enough to land one of the 'free spirits'

    Another happy thanks from me for this thread. I called and was told it was a limited offer that had "gone viral". I explained that I was planning to upgrade my phone and pass my Droid1 on to another line. We had two with data and two without. I would have been adding another data plan soon anyway. My mom on the 4th line sure didn't need data but I was able to get an Ally for her on a BOGO with my Droid X (spent all night reading the DX vs SF debates). We go down from 2000 to 1400 minutes and add unlimited texts. We were always under on minutes and pushing the limits on the 250 text plan so even if I don't save much, it's a plus for me! I suspect they look at usage so they could see that we haven't been over using the plan that we had. The VZ rep was excellent. I will be tuning in to the Droid X forums now and maybe looking for tips on how to get flip-phone users up to speed on Android!

    The DX vs SF decision came down to wanting to keep my Android experience, btw. I really like the size and screen reviews on the SF but don't think I could stand a wildly different interface. I'm not really interested in doing all the moding that it would take to make the SF behave :)

    I haven't gotten any email or text confirmation. Looking at my account online, I have the 1400 mins, but only the main line has the $20 discount, and we have 2 lines that already had data packages. Now when I called in 3 of the lines had feature phones, so I upgraded them before she put in the new plan to smart phones and data plans. I'm hoping it all fixes itself when I get the new phones activated. The other 3 lines still show the pay per MB use.

    Thought i might shed a little more light on how my phone call went.

    I called the number on the ad in the OP. I entered my phone number and acct password. A lady answered, and asked who she was talking to. I said my name, and that i was calling to see about the new unlimited data/texting plan. She pulled up my info, told me how much i would save, and made me aware that it was only on the 1400 min plan (i was on 700) She verified that both phones on my fam plan were using internet. She then looked at my usage and said we would have to start talking more. Setup my plan to immediately switch and prorate for the month.

    I never mentioned where or when i saw it, or anything about an email.

    Good luck to you all, keep trying!

    By the way, I am from Missouri, if they are saying it is a regional thing.

    Those being told no, just curious, are you carrying a past due balance maybe or a poor pay history? Just throwing ideas out there.

    I got it on my first try. She did ask me how I got this promotion I said the Internet. She's like the Internet huh? lol and then continued to giving me the promotion so instead of 90 bucks a month it's a sweet 80 bucks, with unlimited texting and friends and family woo!! I always go over my minutes haha now I won't and I'll save 10 dollars! Extended contract but really who else am I going to go to? AT&T? lol no I'm good.

    Just called the number in the OP again, stated since I did not get the email/text I am cannot recieve the promo rate. I was honest, and the rep said she appreciated the honesty, and that if I did state I got the email/text, they could look it up to determine if in fact I did. She stated that this started last week and I could get an email/text in the future, and if I do, then I can get the promo rate.

    This is a bit halfass by Verizon. They are basically jerking around a ton of customers, depending on what rep you call and get.
