Adding a line, new data plans?
I have a Verizon account with 3 lines on the 700 minute plan and want to add a line. If I add a line how does it work with the new data plans? Will the new line act as a single line if I don't want to give up my unlimited data on my existing plan?

$9.99 for the new line and then the tiered data charge.

I work at a third party retailer. We added a line tonight for a customer with a legacy plan. It was a 700 minute plan with text messaging. One of their lines had unlimited data. We added a line for 10 plus the 2gb of data for the extra 30. Everything else on the plan stayed the same.
If you have an existing account, you can keep your old plan and add lines from a single line to 5. Only thing that can't stay is unlimited data, the tiered plans from before apply. Is a pain, they removed all old propaganda so it is difficult to assist returning customers to illustrate exactly their costs before proceeding on the kiosk.

You can add a new line with the old pricing plans. But you will be forced into the 2 gigabyte for 30 dollars plans on the new line only.
You can keep your unlimited plan on any existing lines

Thanks for the help, you guys were spot on. I was able to keep my current plan and added the new line for $9.99 and $30 for the 2 gigs of data. The sales rep was nice and didn't try to push me into the new data plan. He figured it out and it would of cost me $10 more a month and end up with less data if I switched to the new plans. It seems the new plan helps save money if you need unlimited minutes and texting. If you use more data than minutes the legacy plans are best.

Re: Adding a line, new data plans?
I thought it was funny that when I went in to buy my Galaxy S3, the rep was trying to get me to open a new line to get it for the subsidized price. He was saying that if I opened a new line this year and started a share plan, I could have an upgrade every year. And then I said that if I upgraded every year at the subsidized price, I would lose my Unlimited Data. He got really silent and didn't say anything after that. Tried to pull a fast one on me lol
