    I am in a similar situation but the amazon wireless customer service rep said that if I use the other line on my family plan that is eligible for upgrade 03/29 to buy the thunderbolt I can just activate it then transfer it to my line. Hopefully you have another line that is available for upgrade or will be shortly?
    I just tried calling Amazon Wireless customer service, and they are now closed. And I just missed them too - they close at 9pm CT - by 15 minutes.

    I do have another line that is eligible for an upgrade, but it is my daughter's and we are getting her a new phone for her birthday at the beginning of May. I don't think it would go over too well if I said, "Hey, how about pushing your birthday present back 2 1/2 months?"

    Oh well, at least I have an 8am appointment tomorrow to pick my TB up.

    Do they honor NE2 credit/discount? Cuz I'm getting my tbolt for 200 plus tax so I wouldn't exactly save $100. Maybe 40?

    I canceled mine from wirefly too and ordered with amazon...

    the only question is that i want to get the $5 texting messaging plan but amazon didnt offer it. can i add it once thru verizon's website once i get the phone without getting penalized?

    Also, i know that with wirefly if i swap another number to the tbolt after i activated i would get penalized with the 250... is it the same with amazon?

    thank you..

    I'm 99% sure you will be able to add this back on with verizon with out penalty. I read the penalty details and it didn't seem like it. I have a google voice number for most of my texts anyway, so I"m not overly concerned if I can't get that feature back.

    Does anyone know if you can use NE2 with Amazon purchase? I know this is a starch but I had to ask

    They do not apply your NE2 discount at Amazon.

    Would Verizon price match?

    Stupid question, yet worth asking.

    From what the amazon wireless customer service rep told me, you are able to swap the phone to another number as long as both numbers remain connected for 6 months.

    I couldn't get them to. I tried calling a couple local places and they said no. Also called CS and they told me no as well. Oh well, just ordered and saved myself 90 bucks.

    As good as that deal sounds, I've gone almost 2 months without a phone. Waiting any longer is not an option.

    I just got in on the special promo a few months ago
    They sent out text and emails to certain people but others were able to get in on the deal too if they got the right CSR

    450 minutes
    unlimited text + data
    5 friends n family

    $69.99/mth

    If I sign up at amazon will this mess up my promo pricing? I get a % off from my work too. My bill now with the $6 insurance or $7 whatever it is and after taxes is $70, my discount only gets me $11 off my bill.

    that's the million dollar question for me. even if it does mess it up, they might be able to fix it afterwards. I'm torn. Ordering from Amazon means waiting longer as well.

    holy crap! I placed one order at 11:12PM --> estimated delivery March 21.

    I placed another for second line at 11:18PM --> estimated delivery March 30!

    Of course, my line is the one I ordered second. Now I have to find out if it matters which line I activate which phone on.

    Yeah, about an hour ago, Amazon listed it as "in stock" and now it is listed as "backordered."

    lol I would take "soon" over "not yet shipped". And I ordered it way before the backorder. Oh well it says the 21st so I wont panic until it gets closer to then.

    Don't worry - I called a CSR there and he said their system shows much more detailed info on the process. Apparently mine was loaded on a truck by that point, still on target for 3/21.

    I'm still "not yet shipped", with an estimate of March 18-21. Oh well, this order was for my wife's line, she doesn't mind waiting til Monday.

    I must say I'm pretty impressed with Amazon Wireless customer service. I had to call them twice today and both times I got a rep right away, both were very easy to understand, and both times they resolved my issue quickly and beyond my expectations.

    Just got my TB from Amazon Wireless today! BUT, there are ACTIVATION issues because Verizon wasn't set up to handle SIM cards. I spoke to a helpful (and apologetic) rep on the phone, and Amazon Wireless needs to get their own Technical support to contact Verizon Wireless to electronically send them the SIM numbers. AND THIS MIGHT TAKE AT LEAST 24 HRS!!!
