    BTW, are there any stipulations on how soon a new phone has to be activated?

    Hellllp. Im on a family share plan 700 min with two lines both available for upgrade. Only one line has unlimited the other is 2gb. Both lines are on iPhone 4S and i want to upgrade both to the new note 3 for my wife and i.... Can I preorder both phones at the same time and keep unlimited data on one?

    I believe you will only be pre-order 1 phone. Once that is activated transfer the upgrade and order the other phone.

    Even so, moving phones from line to line certainly doesn't impact customer retention.

    Some have said that they moved phones no problem, but the terms are what they are. If you do it, then you take the risk. I personally wouldn't take the chance, even though the risk is low, but every one can make that decision for themselves

    Just like you, I'm willing to wait until Thanksgiving and see what Costco or somebody else offers, then call them and, hopefully, ask the right questions. But wouldn't it be nice to get Note 3 for $49.99?

    Thanksgiving is probably a little soon. Probably in January /February if it drops to around $100,I would get it. I think that the likelihood is higher because by then it would have been out a while and January /February are usually slower months, considering right after Christmas. But I certainly hope it would be $50 by Thanksgiving, just not betting on it

    If I remember correctly, nobody but Costco was selling Rezound at that point for $49.99, so I'm hopeful.

    Amazon was selling the rezound, droid razr, skyrocket, etc for a penny on black Friday 2011(around the same time Costco was selling the Rezound for $50),but only for new line of service.

    Still somewhat perplexed. I have two smart phones with unlimited data.

    If I go online to activate a third phone, a dumb phone, the charge is $30 a month for a "basic" phone. I'm assuming I start a new line, use it to purchase a new smartphone, pay $40 plus 2 GB data plan, activate phone...transfer it to one of my unlimited plans etc.

    When all is said and done I have to put a dumb phone with a basic plan back on the new line, and remove data. But aren't I still stuck with $30 per month basic phone charge?

    You probably have a family share plan now. So just add a line for $10 plus taxes.

    Not to jinx it, God forbid, but I'm amazed that Verizon hasn't yet learned and crushed this scheme. If this comes to be true about the embedded SIMs and one would have to go to the stores to do the swapping, that may be it.

    The closest verizon store is quite a drive.

    I see the option of using "Existing SIM" when switching the device online (it is already deactivated from the other line). Can I use the SIM that came with the phone (activated on the other line)? Will that reset the SIM and make it reusable? Or do I have to make the hike to the verizon store for a new line-specific SIM?

    Thanks!

    I used the existing SIM and it worked fine. You'll have to find the SIM card number which I found at Settings -> About Phone -> Status. The number was the ICCID on my Maxx. I would certainly try that first. Just be patient when activating the SIM. It seemed to take quite a while to update (15 or 20 min) on the Verizon website.

    Had to take my phone in to do an exchange after successful completing the unlimited data plan loophole 10 days ago. The Verizon rep exchanged my device but ended up dropping the unlimited data plan and it also used my upgrade that I had on my unlimited data line! Now I'm really mad. I am calling Verizon tomorrow to see if I can fix this. So beware guys if you plan on doing an exchange on a defective phone!

    Did you use an upgrade on an alternate line or transfer the upgrade from your unlimited line to the alternate line.

    Or is there a way to go month to month on a new dumb phone, funneling the upgrades through it, and cancel the new 3rd line all together?

    thanks
    anyone?

    agreeing to an additional unused dumb phone line for 24 months (which i read comes out to about $13 per month) still means I give Verizon an extra $312. Just want to be sure it is indeed the only way. I do not need a 3rd line at all

    As far as I know that's the only way.

    Unless I still don't understand how this schema works, in order to upgrade both phones and keep both lines unlimited, you'd need two new dumb lines.

    One works, the second is just routed through the first.

    You can just get one additional phone for which you'd get a new smartphone. Then you could move the upgrades from the two unlimited phones to that new third line to get two more new smartphones. You could then sell one of the extra smartphones. Some have put a dummy EIN number on the third line to minimize monthly payments of holding that third line. Not sure if that is still the case though as Verizon seems to keep changing and clamping down on the rules. Or put a plain phone (perhaps one you have spare, or get on ebay or Amazon) that doesn't need data on it and give it to grandparents kids kids.

    Ok so I am on the final steps and trying to activate the phone on my unlimited line but it says I need a new sim card. I called vzw twice but both CSRs said they can't clear it and I need to get a new sim...any ideas? I know people on here had their sims cleared

    So how about this? Both my wife's and my lines are eligible for updates. If I get a new smartphone, activate it on her (dumb - sorry, honey) line, and then move to mine, whose update eligibility is gone: mine, hers, or both? What if a month later she wakes up and tells me she wants a newer phone, and, by all this moving around, I'd ruined her life?
