    Can I upgrade the 2 dumbphone lines to GNote3s (w/ 2GB plans each), activate them on my parents lines, then reactivate the dumbphones to their lines and then activate the GNote3s to our smartphone lines?
    yes you can. and it will not affect your unlimited data at all.


    Will this Comcast deal get us 2 $200 Visa cards in the process?
    the fine print on the website doesn't say anything about a limit on these per account. I would call and check.


    Also, would it be beneficial to do Edge with these dumbphone lines and just upgrade every year via those lines to something new and do the same switch as above?
    No. Better to transfer your unlimited data upgrades to the basic lines, upgrade on those lines and then do the switcheroo again. There is a thread on the Verizon forum about this process.

    Thanks. So as long as I don't upgrade TO the unlimited data lines, the upgrades can continue to be rotated to the dumbphones and the cycle will continue? (barring my parents wanting to move into the 21st century)

    basically but check out the thread on the verizon forum for all of the details.

    Made the call today. Pretty painless via the Comcast-Verizon deal. Turns out it's $200 gift card for first line and $50 for 2nd line. Still much better than anything else out there, IMO. Thanks.

    I guess ,, my wife was with me and remembered about some kind of rebate to use from when we bought my son's Iphone5 in Aug., they looked it up and said yup. They said good thing you remembered because it was due to expire at years end.

    yeah, that is the $50 gift card promo they run every year. If you sign up in February, you get $50 gift card when you upgrade thru best buy through the end of the year.

    There are different promotions the one where you sign up in February is the reserve gift card offer. There are also offers where you buy select phones and get a gift card, or trade in a phone and get a minimum gift card of $100 (or whatever denomination that they are running at the time.

    The reserve gift card promotion can be combined with either the trade in promotion or the iPhone (or other select phone) gift card promotion. Here are some sample previous promotions.

    The reserve gift card offer if you signed up this year has been extended until 12/31/2014. If the csr didn't give you the reserve gift card at pos, you can call bb and they can send it to you, and you have 90 days to redeem it. I also took a screen shot of what that email should look like

    Thanks all for the help. Got the phone and already rooted this baby and installed Safestrap recovery.

    Love this phone and the s-pen is great and didn't think I'd like it that much and with the $200 visa card it only costs $100. What a deal.

    What about the Samsung store $50 credit? I recall when I registered my wife's s4 she got it. Does this apply for the note 3 too?

    Samsung offering U.S. Galaxy Note 3 owners $50 Google Play credit | Android Central

    Oh, now I see that it was limited to first come first serve. Any idea how long it lasted?

    I can't remember exactly but probably a day or two. There were multiple threads about it about a month ago

    Yes that's a very good deal. Ib would maybe wait to see what the S5 is going to offer as long you have another phone to use while you wait. The Note 3 is only going to go down in price especially when the S5 comes out

    I disagree. ..The note 3 is the only phone in its very own category.

    If it is not on sale today, check back next sunday. Sometimes they run online specials in the middle of the week and with new years day coming up, they may do a sale for the holiday.

    Or just wait for a sale. I bought my first Note 3 on release day for $90 on contract. I bought my second Note 3 on Black Friday weekend for $200 with $200 visa prepaid card.

    If you were looking for no contract pricing, the Verizon Note 3 was $300 or so from amazon earlier this year.

    Who bought what from whom?
    Verizon bought wireless spectrum from a cable company consortium. In the agreement of sale Verizon has agreed to sell Com casts services in their wireless stores.

    With the edge program you pay more. I never keep a phone for longer than a year.

    My monthly bill is high enough, I don't need to add $30 a mo or whatever to pay for a phone.
