    Man I'm so jealous. That's the perfect temperature. I used tto love the cold and snow but now, I could certainly do without!!

    Do you know if there's a way that my girlfriends phone can be reactivated so she doesn't have to do anything? She's at work and once I activate the Note 2 it will deactivate her phone and I will have no way to contact her to help her if need be.

    Haha, Florida? You can keep the warmth and humidity. Spent ten years in SoFlaw (South Florida) and it about fried my brain (doesn't agree with my Minnesota blood). I'll take the full change of seasons over the two (Summer and summer) down there.

    The only thing I could suggest is to call her just before you activate the GN2. Tell her to wait 10 minutes or so, then do the *228 thing, then have her call you when she's done.

    I agree - this humidity is a beyatch.....this is the best time of the year. Soon, all the q-tips (aka Snowbirds) will be here from up north. lol

    Tried calling VZW and doing the switch will not work aaccording to them. They're wrong for sure so I'm heading to a corporate store now to see what I can do there.

    you may have to get them to swap out for a new SIM - once the original one is provisioned I think it's permanently associated. Seem to remember reading that in an iPhone forum for folks trying to keep their unlimited data plans there.

    Verizon can do all that over the phone, they did mine last week! Sim was reprogrammed.

    I called customer service and was very direct.... I told them that i ordered and upgrade for Line B, but would like to connect to Line A. They said no problem with no questions asked. Took about 10 mins while waiting for the their system to make the switch and for the sim card to activate.

    It's crazy that their service and outcomes vary so widely between different people doing the exact same thing. I explained exactly what I was doing and they flat out said no. Then, I went to a corporate Verizon store and had it done in 15 minutes.

    For other people attempting to do this:
    I'd say just hang up and call again till you get a different CSR. And make sure you don't tell them that you were trying to get around the unlimited data thing, Just say i want to switch from A to B. if they ask why just say because the person with the other line changed their mind and that you want it.

    I told the Verizon Rep in the store today what I was going to do and he didn't like it. He said I couldn't do it, told him I already had last week and would do it again with the note 2.

    Called customer service tonight and they did it no problem, they're not losing any money. They get it all eventually!

    I think you will lose the unlimited unless you paid full retail for the device

    You will only lose unlimited if you use an upgrade on the line that has unlimited. if you use another line and then switch it over as your own device you are fine.

    One word...amazed. Coming from an awesomely rooted Thunberbolt though there are some features that I miss and I'm trying to adapt to Touchwiz over a launcher but hands down, this is the best phone I've ever used. It has all of my local iPhone users drueling. Loving my Spigen SGP Ultra Oleophobic screen protector and Seidio active as well and I plan on finishing my review of them both tonight in my other posts.

    You get yours up and running?
