    So I'm on a Verizon plan with a few upgrades available on other lines. The thing is that they are basic phone lines (don't have data access fees), not smartphone lines. In the past, I know that one was able to transfer the basic upgrade to a smartphone line without theoretically upgrading the basic line. I've been hearing that Verizon changed their policy so that if you transfer a basic upgrade to a smartphone line, the basic line becomes a smartphone line, and requires data access, thus costing more money than simply transferring the upgrade.

    My question is: What exactly will happen if I'm on a 2-year activation plan, and transfer a basic-phone upgrade to my smartphone line? Will I be a happy customer, or will I have to deal with extra, unintended charges?

    If I have severely confused you, I sincerely apologize.

    Thanks,
    Christopher

    If you use a basic phone upgrade on your smartphone line, or upgrade the basic phone line to a smartphone, you'll be paying the smartphone line access fee. No way around that.

    That really sucks. We used to be able to transfer basic phone upgrades to smartphone lines without being charged for it.

    Does this still hold true if you never turn the phone on with the supplied sim card?

    This is correct. I worked at Verizon for almost two years and this was changed little over a year ago. Besides the obvious business side of this decision there really wasn't a lot more said to us in the store besides being charged the same as a smartphone line.
