    No I can't quite get that. But we were just talking and he mentioned that he can add a line for my sister for $9.99, get the DROID Eris with that and then give my sister the Versa. Can it work like that?

    I appreciate your help thus far,

    well, im not saying it isnt possible, however, i would not go SEEKING it. if a policy is there, it is there for a reason....
    verizon has a group of people who do nothing all day but sit at computers reconsiling accounts. i have seen this happen to people. somone is recieving a discount he or she is not supposed to be getting---for example, an employee discount after they have been unemployed for 6 or more moths from that employer...verizon will verify what is supposed to be there, and then charge you for ALLL the discounts you have been irroneously recieving.

    the ONLY smart phones (that i know of) that can be activated without a data plan, are the older palm treo's.

    common misconception. an "employee discount" is only eligable for the employees phone. and, although yes, i have seen it happen, where all phones on the account are getting data plan discounts, they are rectified eventually.
    so, in short, no. only the main line on the account gets the employee disount. and if your wifes job offers one, and yours doesnt, it isnt just as simple as putting her as main line. she must completly take over the account so that it is under her credit and social in order for your account to get the discount..

    it depends. only lines that cost $34.99 and higher are eligable for discounts. ie- a 2ndary line does not qualify--it only forst $9.99. the data plan in this case does not count tword the total cost of the line.

    Hmm, this has me worried a bit. Let me explain.

    My Mom has been with Verizon for probably 3-4 years now and within that time my employer has started offering a discount on Verizon. At the time I was with AT&T so I figured, heck why not put the account in my name and apply my discount (it's a pretty good discount). Now that I'm also a Verizon customer, my line is also receiving the discount. For now, it's set up so that we have two separate rate plans (not on a family plan yet) but both under the same account. My number is now the main number, and we're both receiving the discount. Are you saying that my discount could be cancelled for my mother's number?

    Thanks.

    no, as long as each line is more than $34.99, you are fine. so, if each has its own plan, but are both on the same "account"...your good.

    My quick question. I have two phones on my plan. I upgraded to my Imagio exactly 32 days before the Droid came out, so needless to say, too early for any kind of price break on an upgrade, even the early upgrade, My wife's phone is due for the early upgrade in about three weeks. Can I use her phone for the upgrade to get the Droid but apply it to my phone or will she now be subject to the data plan fee, even if she stays with her old phone? She doesn't currently have a data plan.

    I know, I probably could have worded that a little better. If you need clarification, let me know.

    nope, good question, the only phone number that requires a data plan, is a phhone number with a smartphone (or semi smart) on the plan. so if you currently have (for instance) a Razr, and she upgrades her phone to the moto droid, and then all you haveto do is call cust service, and have them do what is called an "esn swap", putting the razr on her number, and the moto droid on yours. Voila.

    That makes sense. Since I have the Imagio, basically, I'll ask them to apply the upgrade to her phone but upgrade the Droid on my EIN. Think that sounds right.

    go into the store (or do it online to get the instant rebate) and upgrade her phone, once you get the droid, and it HAS BEEN ACTIVATED on her number, only then can you swap esn's and give her your imagio, and take the moto droid for yourself.

    What about alternative number upgrades? Wouldn't this fall under that category?
