Is it seamless to add a new line?
As that date approaches, I want to make sure I am ready. All I want to do is take a Nationwide Talk+Text plan with 3 lines (The primary and 2 others) and add another line to it for the iP4. Does anyone have any experience doing this and if so is it easy/ how long does it take?

I am actually in this same predicament. I am currently on a Family Shareplan with my mother (I'm a college student). We used to have 2 other lines on this plan YEARS ago, but they were deactivated a while ago. When I spoke to a CSR 2 days ago, he said I could reactivate one of those lines and then that line would be eligible for an upgrade. I'm going to visit my local Verizon store tomorrow to confirm this, but I think it should be as easy as "I want to add a line and I want to put the iPhone 4 on it.' Okay, now you owe Verizon $200 for this phone." And from what I understand, it should only cost an extra $10 a month + the data package to do this.
BTW, I'm a college grad as of recent so I know what you mean! =D

With your plan, you are eligible for 5 lines, 4 plus the primary line.
Don't confuse that with "Friends and Family", the free 10 numbers that comes with the 1400-minute plan and higher.

Ok, so I just got back from my local corporate VZW store. I confirmed my plan with one of the reps, and he said it would work perfectly. My plan is to go wait outside the store at about 5am, go in when they open at 7am, add a line to my family shareplan, and purchase the VZW iPhone 4 for $199.99. I specifically asked the rep if I would be guaranteed an iPhone if I came into the store that morning, and he said that those in my area who preorder an iPhone will be receiving directly from an Apple warehouse, not from the store's stock. So basically, if the store is stocked with 200 iPhones, then the 1st 200 people will be walking out of the store with an iPhone. I know that people have been concerned that even if they are the 1st person in the store on the 10th that they might have already run out of iPhones from the preorders. But, after my conversation with the rep today, all people have to do is be sure to be one of the 1st people in the corporate store!

Thanks! I didn't think there would be a problem, but I wanted a 2nd opinion just to be sure! My situation is slightly different, only in the fact that she would be joining me in the line because the rep I talked to said I would have to have the account holder there with me since it would TECHNICALLY be changing the contract. Darn those pesky technicalities.
