Re: adding from dumbphone line
you have to activate on the dumbphone line so yes you have to use the new sim......it has gotten more complicated to jump through these hoops.....took me quite a while today but worth it to keep unlimited.

once that is done and the phone is actually activated on the dumbphone line.....you can then pop out the sim (don't mix up with yours).....go back onto your verizon account and once again select activate a phone.....select the dumbphone line (mine never updated to show the note 3, just showed lg cosmos the whole time)....this time select "switch to a phone used before" and then chose the dumb phone from the drop down list, if its not listed there you can "switch to a new phone" and then put in the phones id number from under the battery. do the *228 activation and select 1.....the dumbphone line should then be back to the dumbphone.
then back once again to the verizon account and for the last time select activate a phone, choose your phone line....i had to select the "switch to a new phone" since the note 3 didn't show up in the list of previous phones on the account.....i put in the note 3's id number from under the battery, you should then be prompted to put your sim in and boot up the phone. should activate and be good to go.
was a hassle but like i say, worth it to keep unlimited. thanks verizon for all of the hoops to jump through!!
