    Default Upgrade transfer

    Okay my girlfriend is on a family plan with her (smartphone) and 2 parents (dumb phones) she wants to upgrade but isn't eligible for an upgrade for a while. Both her parents have an upgrade, I asked a Verizon rep and he said she could transfer an upgrade from dumb phone to smart phone, anyone care to chime in? I don't want them to mess up her parents plans. Thanks!

    Yes, you can do that. It will extend the contract on the line the upgrade is coming from, not on your girlfriend's line.

    BUT if her parents have an upgrade available. No need to transfer as it won't let you. They would need to use their upgrade to get a new phone. Unless I'm mistaken here?

    Although it isn't needed, you can transfer the upgrade from the basic line to the smartphone line if desired. Best Buy can do it. But whether or not they are willing to is another story. Please note that if you have unlimited data, transferring the upgrade from the basic line to the unlimited line line would probably result in loss of unlimited data.

    In reality, my recommendation would be to upgrade the basic lines as is. After activation on the basic line, you can simply take the sim from the old smartphone and put it into the new one. And reactivate the dumb phone back into its line.

    Upgrade dun phone line to new phone and activate new phone on dumb phone line choosing a data plan. Then activate dumb phone on line blocking data on line freeing up new phone to be used on another line. And it would extend dumb phone lines contract.

    No you can just upgrade one of her parents lines to the phone she wants. By doing that you would temporarily need to choose a data plan. Then reactivate dun phone on line and calling to cancel data plan. And she can then use phone on her line.

    Yes they would allow her to take the data plan off since it's a dumb phone being put on there. And the price will go back to dumb phone price of I believe 9.99 access fee.

    It won't be any etf because they wouldn't be canceling any service/line. The etf is tied to the line not the device on the line unless you do this process from say amazon or wirefly etc. but safe to be done via verizon or best buy or Costco.

    It's pretty easy to do. It can be a little tricky and uncooperative if say her line was eligible for an upgrade and theirs wasn't and transfers won't always go smoothly.

    Well, most likely, they will force the 75mb/$10 plan on you but you can block data which would automatically remove the data charge from the dumb phone line.

    If I am understanding it correctly, the situation that the op is in its different. The smartphone line is still under contract. But the basic lines have upgrades available. If this is the case, simply upgrade and activate on the basic lines then move the phones to the smartphone line
