    On another thread, I saw someone stating that unlimited data plans could be sold and transferred to someone else

    I found someone there who is looking to buy an unlimited plan, but told him I wanted to keep my number. He explained the process as:

    "You need to go through google voice and port your number over to them. In the meantime you would need to call verizon and tell them that you don't want to lose that plan(just change the number on it) if you know what I mean. I know it sounds confusing. But your literally porting your number out to google voice and then calling Verizon telling them on your unlimited line you just want to change your number
    And after that you will need to call and tell them I'm assuming that line."

    Does anyone have experience with this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Are you saying VZ will just change the account ownership based on a phone call? Sounds strange to me.

    actually, they will.
    as long as you are an admin (or whatever they call it) on the acct.

    I worked for VZW and can tell you that it is called an "AOL" or "Assumption Of Liability". As for the methods for keeping your number, I'd have to sit down and think about it. If you call VZW, they will know exactly what a AOL is.

    From a business standpoint, VZ must know what's going on. I'm surprised they would allow it.

    Will they change ownership on the line with the unlimited data plan only? I have 5 lines on my account and don't want the others to be affected.

    I'm guessing that the only concrete and binding answer will come from VZW.
    Have you contacted them?

    I sold my old unlimited account. I never looked in to keeping my old number though, it didn't matter to me. I do think it's possible though!

    I didn't think keeping your number was possible. I thought about this a while back as a way to get all my texts to go thru GV, but a number change (which is what you are doing porting your current number) is a plan change = no more unlimited.

    Well, it wouldn't be the first time a store rep was wrong...but I was told the plan was linked to the number: new number = new plan.

    From wearing my old VZW hat, if the number ports out, poof. If in contract, ETF, if not in contract, the line is cancelled.

    Now that I think about it, I recall that when I moved 14 years ago and inquired about getting a new number, the Verizon rep advised me to keep my old number because I was on such a good plan at the time and that he wouldn't be able to match it.
