    I have Unlimited data. The data plan was not showing up in my online cart and only my current existing 900 minutes and unlimited text was showing up, so I called to confirm and I ordered for in store pickup and can report that I still have my unlimited data.
    Good to know. When I do the dpp it looks like it switches to the more everything plan- if I had access to wifi at work I wouldnt care, but I stream music and use a lot of data during the day.

    So I got the Z play last Monday. I'm still under my 14 day trial I saw this promo too late so I was going to upgrade under my son's account and the code work but after confirming everything with Verizon they said the only reason why I'm eligible for the code because it's buy one get half off on the second one and if I was to do the upgrade under my son and then turn my phone in I would have to pay the difference of the $200, But I thought in order to get there buy one get half off on the second you have to do it the same transaction when I put the promo code in it asks if I wanted to buy a second one and I said no and the code still worked. I'm confused?

    Right,I just selected no when it asked if I wanted a second one.

    I wouldn't say anything and just return the one you have now. Then buy with the promotion

    It did the same thing for me on Tuesday. Once you get to the chose data plan page try clicking on continue instead of explore new plan. The trick is to get to the end with your existing phone plan still there even if you don't see unlimited. My plan only showed my 900 minutes plan and no data so I called to confirm that I'd get to keep my data.

    There's probably something else wrong with his account. But conveniently they are blaming udp. Because Verizon has explicitly said when they added the $20 increase that you can now do dpp.
    There might be a difference in my account. Mine was setup by a corporate rep. Even though I have unlimited data, I do not have the additional $20 per month additional fee on my line. So that may be why mine doesn't qualify?

    If you don't have the $20 fee, you could still be under contract. I believe once you go off contract you will get that $20 additional fee and be able to buy phones using the payment plan and keep your unlimited data.

    I went onto my Verizon account to try and use the code. It does not give my any options at all to enter the code. The strange part is it did give me the option to purchase the phone for $99 with a 2 year contract. I currently have an UDP on the line.

    One more thing I complained to Verizon about being into my 14 day trial and not being able to price match the promo code so I had to pay the restocking fee but they waive the $20 upgrade fee.

    Keep in mind that this is the Verizon version.and while it is factory sim unlocked,it doesn't contain all the radios used in other carriers and certain features might not work.
    I'm not concerned. If it doesn't fully work I can just sell it on to someone else.

    Be very careful, you will almost surely LOSE UDP if you get subsidy.

    We're you able to do this in-store or online only? My girlfriend got here a couple days ago, but we are leaving on vacation Saturday. If she can do it in-store I think it's worth it. If we have to mail it back and reorder online I don't think she'll want to

    I returned the phone in store. I reordered online I believe that it is a online only promo, I didn't think to ask. I would ask if I we're you. They waived my $20 activation fee through customer service. So it maybe possible.

    I tried doing it in the store with no luck. You are able to order it online then pick it up in the store. Got mine yesterday. Love it so far. Battery life like whoa!

    Yup. You do all of the actual ordering and paying online. They don't even activate the phone or turn it on for you. When you go in they hand you a bag with your phone and say have a good day. Activating it yourself is easy and it tells you how online. I prefer it that way anyway. Less time I have to be in that store rather than enjoying the comfort of my home while setting up the phone.

    Yep, I was shocked they just handed me the bag. I assumed I would be bothered and they would insist on setting it up for me in the store. Here's a tip though. If you already have a working Verzon sim card take the sim card included with the new phone out before setting it up. Set it up without a sim card and use wifi. After you are done you can just use your existing sim card. No need to go through the process of activating a new sim card.

    So if you're on an older Verizon plan that is no longer offered, does this deal lock you unto another 2 year contract, or are you free to go as soon as the phone is paid off?

    You are free to go as soon as it is paid off. But some promotions require that the line be active for 3 or 6 months.

    I have a UDP, chatted with a rep online to confirm keeping my UDP if I upgraded. At first she said it would be gone. Then, when I questioned her about the $20 fee and now being able to use the DPP to keep unlimited data, she said that if it showed up as unlimited at checkup, I could keep it. To find out if it did, I had to click on VIEW DATA & TEXT FEATURES (it doesn't look like it is a clickable link but it is) under the existing lines at checkout. This showed that it was still there. Of course I took screenshots of everything, including the chat conversation, just to be on the safe side, but as of right now, everything still looks good. Also, when you are going through the checkout process, at the data plan tab, if you click on view new plan, instead of continue, it will try to move you out of unlimited data.

    Yeah I wouldn't worry too much . worse case you can go through Verizon ECR to get it back

    I was able to apply the discount no problem, but at the final page before checkout I saw a notice stating "With this upgrade, your monthly line access charge will change from $125.00 to $150.00." I have no idea why this would be, and they offer no explanation on the site, so I'm bailing on this offer.

    Used the code, thanks to the OP. I did it all online and had to try a few times before it worked. I did in store pick up and got it the next day with a screen protector and speck case. Came from turbo 2. The turbo 2 has a wider screen I think. I wish this screen was wider on the play. Signal strength OK, battery? Holy COW!!! I got 46 hours off charger with 9 hours screen time and 3 hours bluetooth calling with wifi, GPS, and bluetooth on the whole time.
