    So the day of release I paid full retail price to get my Maxx HD and keep my unlimited plan.
    Today I decided to get one for my 2nd line and expected to pay full retail. ( I have 4 lines, 2 smart phones and 2 basic)
    The rep told me she could use the upgrade from one of my basic lines to get the Maxx HD at the discounted price and keep my unlimited plan. Sweet!
    Then I asked about the phone I just got. She let me return it (on paper) then sell it back to me at the discounted price. + a $35 restocking fee. Double sweet! :)

    She was great. She went out of her way to help me figure out how to keep my unlimited plan and get the phones at the upgraded price. :)

    She told me she could have done it the same way if I also added another line. So if I only had two smart phones, I could have added a new 3rd and a 4th line. I wouldn't have save as much since I would be paying $10 a month for each line.

    I paid full retail price for mine too. I kept my data plan, and in my existing plan, I will be eligible for an upgrade in 9 months. In that time I'm sure something else will come out, and if it smokes the Razor Max HD, I will be able to get it at the discount price:)

    How is it possible to get an upgrade, pay discounted price and still retain unlimited plan?? I didn't think this was possible. If so, I will need to share this info with my Verizon guy Jose who is selling me my phone this week.

    I didn't think so either. But she made it work. I doubled check my account online and both smartphones are on a two year contract and both still have unlimited data. ;)
    She said having the other two basic lines made it easy for her to move things around.

    The only way, so far, is if you have to have more than one line and an eligible upgrade that can be used on a tiered line.
    *Place the eligible upgrade on the limited tiered line,
    *get the new subsidized phone on that limited tiered line's upgrade,
    *very important-activate the new phone on the limited tiered line to update the contract for that line (because it is a tiered line, the upgrade does not cause you to choose a tiered package for that line).
    *once the contract is updated on the tiered line, you can put the new phone on any line you want, including your unlimited lines.

    Can anyone confirm if I can do this with an online purchase? I have a basic line that is eligable for an upgrade and would like to upgrade the basic phone line with the Maxx HD then move as you are suggesting. And I'd like to take advantage of the Amazon price. :)

    I heard that phones bought online through companies such as Amazon charge a fee if the phone gets transferred to a different line.

    Yep. Pretty spot on. I think you have to leave the phone on that line for 180 days with Amazon or they give you an ETF of their own

    Ok, I was afraid of what other obligations there might be in the fine print with Amazon since the phone is $100 less.

    What about doing this through Verizon online? Any limitation with doing what is mentioned here if going that route?

    No, Verizon, Costco and best buy let you switch your phone to any line you want without a fee.

    I purchased a Maxx HD through Amazon for another number under my family plan that was eligible for upgrade a discounted price. As soon as the phone came in, instead of activating it on the number it was supposed to be activated on, I took it to Verizon and they complied the terms of service for amazon, and without activating it on the other line first, put it straight on my line that I have unlimited data grandfathered in on. No extra fees from Amazon or Verizon. Only fees I have occurred total is the 199.99 from Amazon for the phone and 30.00 for upgrading the other line with Verizon. The activated the SIM Card straight to my number instead of to the other number so it tied the Amazon terms of service to my line with unlimited data. I have no idea how the lady at Verizon did it, but she is a Godsend. So to sum it up, Maxx HD, discounted price, unlimited data, no extra fees.

    My wifes line has unlimited and had an upgrade a few weeks ago. She just got her Iphone last night that I got through Verizon online. When I ordered it I transfered her upgrade to another line we have with a dumb phone on it. Last night I activated it on that other line and 6 hrs later her line is still showing that it has unlimited. I will be keeping an eye on it to see if they try to remove her unlimited in the near future. I hope this works out and they don't remove the unlimited B/C my line has unlimited as well and an upgrade in early Dec. and I want to pick up a Maxx HD.

    Side ? Does Verizon still do early upgrades? It would be nice to not have to wait a month and get the Maxx HD now.

    upgrade/data

    So, my wife and I have smartphones. My line is primary and is unlimited data. Let's say I upgrade her line to galaxy 3 (no plan change). Then I change her phone to my line, would I still keep unlimited data?

    What data package does the wife use? I know when I was at the store my sis has a feature phone non smart with no data.. Sales person told me if she's eligible they would put the Maxx on her line discounted for a minute then switch it to my unlimited line.. Keep price and data package..
