    I went in on a Sat (12/4) and got the BOGO. An X for me and a D2G for the wife. I called the Promo Number on Wed. (12/8), got the new plan plus another BOGO X and D2G for the kids.

    I asked about the life of the Promo and the CSR (Laura) said the promo would not expire.

    I called 877-873-3278 and said I had a flyer and wanted to know about the unlimited data promo. He did not indicate that it was for a select group of people. All lines do not have to be smart phones.

    I had:
    5 lines
    1400 minutes
    unlimited texting
    2 lines with unlimited data
    $210 per month

    I now have
    5 lines 1400 minutes
    unlimited texting
    5 lines with unlimited data
    $200

    So I am saving $10 per month and got unlimited data for 3 additional lines!

    The guy I spoke to was Kevin. We were disconnected during the call and I had to call back. He answered both times and stated it's a very small department for this promotion. Keep calling back until you get Kevin! :)

    Have you been able to get approval for early upgrade?

    Just got of the phone with Big Red and.....

    They added a note onto my account that says I heard about the promo and I'm VERY interested in it.

    So as soon as it's openly available to the public... I'm first in line for an e-mail about it!

    70 bucks a month vs. 100 bucks a month for the SAME PLAN I have now...

    Um. No. I'm not interested in saving 30 bucks I could use towards Gas or Cigarettes or... other things...

    And I've only got 11 more months till I can get my Upgrade...

    That's 11 more months of new phones coming out. Hopefully a MOTOROLA DualCore Device (Cool Name Suggestion: Motorola Droid X Squared *HINT HINT*) comes out.

    I can't wait. Upgrade Time is gonna be a happy time.

    They said they could move the upgrade date on the secondary line, but it would null the bogo offer

    phone purchases do not affect your plan, but signing up for this promo require a 1-yr renewal. if you're up for a phone upgrade, you typically get the discount only after you sign up for a 2yr extension to your contract. would be interesting to see how they handle stacking the two. does your plan expire 2yrs from upgrade, or 3?

    When I called they said my contract was going to remain the same.

    It would be interesting, I'm just afraid that if I sign up and they give me the 139.99 promo. And then do BOGO Jan 8th or later (secondary line eligible for upgrade, currently LG EnV) that the 2yr agreement signed to get BOGO (DX and Fascinate) would override the 1yr contract of 139.99.

    My new every 2 for primary is in July, but my 1 year upgrade is ok anytime. I last signed a contract in November, when moto droid was released. So 2 yr contract would expire nov 2011.

    I'm not really sure what else we can tell you DroidCoug. I think you should just give it a shot since you're going to be upgrading anyways. Some people are not getting the promo at all, so i think if you can get it now, do it. If they try to change it when you go to upgrade, make a stink right there in the store and go as high up the ladder as necessary. But I'm guessing you should be fine.

    I was told (and a lot of other people were told) that this does not affect upgrades or anything. So if I still have this plan in 2 years when I upgrade my phone, the plan will stay the same, just the phone will change and the contract gets renewed.

    I don't work for Verizon, and I think the majority of the people on this site do not, so we can only help you so much. You just have to pull the trigger and be persistent on what you want.

    Thanks for all of your inputs Beka27, I just like saying my thought process, so other users, who could be in similar situations might benefit and get the promo as well. I will keep updating with further info as it comes :)
