I'm a little confused with this cross-upgrade thing... I am on a Verizon family plan with grandfathered-in $30 for unlimited data for my smartphone.. However, my phone is the only smartphone on the plan. (A Droid original WAAAAY past due upgrade.) My parents comprise the other two phones on the plan, but they are "dumb phones". If I upgrade one of their phone for the S III (drooool), won't that tack on a $30 required data fee to their line, thus adding another $30 a month? Or does that get dropped when we swap lines and my Droid gets dropped from the plan?
Thanks and +4 reps in advance for any help!
The latter is true, the data plan is only mandatory for as long as the second line has a smartphone on it. When you swap that line back to a feature phone, the only requirement is to keep that line for another 2 years. User Standupdad has a greatly detailed post about the process.
Does anyone know what they mean by "Select Data Plan" yet? I confirmed my phones for purchase. They needed to setup appointments so you can activate them, mine is later tonight. No one knew that it meant when I asked. I don't want to be forced out of my unlimited data. Is there anyone with more information on this yet?
have fun standing in line for 6 hours like my friend did. he swtiched from t-mobile to at&t and paid $36 b/c of the activation fee. He said you had to have gotten there early in the day and get a ticket.
