    i'm looking to get a new android phone (still haven't decided which one) and give my fiancee my D1. it's currently running actngrezy's project elite v0.2 ROM w/ purple dark edge on it, so it looks pretty far from stock :) (great work guys!)

    my question is, do i need to bring my D1 back to stock for the verizon people to switch it over to my fiancee?

    thank you guys! any help is much appreciated :)

    now to decide on which phone to get (dx, dinc, fascinate, d2...) :)

    best,

    If you're on a family plan, and she has the data plan ($30/mo for unlimited data on a smartphone) already on her line, she should just be able to re-activate the phone on her line. If she doesnt have the data plan, you'll need to call or go into (calling is easier) Verizon and have them add the plan.

    If she's on her own line, it's the same deal.

    Activating a new (or passed on) device is something that can be done from the comfort of your home - after your new phone is active just call *228 (I think) on the other device and walk through the set-up process

    Hopefully someone can confirm the *228 number but it can be done

    Yep *228, option 1. It will ask for your 10-digit number and your account password. Profit.

    yeah, we're on a family plan w/ data for both of us.

    you guys are seriously awesome. i REALLY appreciate you saving me the time especially since she already loves my current setup.

    all my best,

    Very simple online. Go to verizon's new ugly homepage
    About half way down find devise, hit activate line. You can swap phones easily that way.
