ATTENTION: #8 has an actual question!
So some of you may know that before the 3rd I added a line with a junk feature phone so that I could instantly upgrade on the 3rd. Well as you know, for Mr. #8, everything worked out well.
Here is my situation:
Line 1- The main line with my current 3G feature phone. This has a $9.99/mo data pack on it.
Line 2- Parent's line. Ignore.
Line 3- Parent's line. Ignore.
Line 4- The line I just added with a crappy LG Voyager with no data, soon to be the iPhone 4 line.
What I want to do is, when I get the iPhone 4 (Monday hopefully!), this:
Line 1- Put the non-data using LG Voyager on this line and take my data-using feature phone off, but still keep the 2 year contract that was already on the line (i.e. no ETF or anything). With this I could take that $9.99 data off and save $9.99 a month as I don't believe the Voyager "Requires a data pack $X.XX or higher".
Line 2- Ignore.
Line 3- Ignore.
Line 4- Activate the iPhone 4 with the $29.99 data and have this phone be the only one on the plan with any data charges.
Is that possible or am I locked into the 2 year, $9.99/mo price for my current 3G feature phone?

I know that verizon started requiring a 9.99 data plan on most feature phones. They require one for my girlfriends envy 3 (what a pos that phone is) and they tried to charge me one when I had the env touch and I think maybe even the voyager but I argued with them that when I signed got the phone they didn't require data plans so they let me slide. I think now they require it for voyagers as well, which have been discontinued if your curious. I would call and ask. Pretty sure if you look at the feature phones, such as env touch (phone that replaced the voyager) it will say data plan required.

I think you are looking at this all wrong. From what i'm getting your line is currently line 1 and you are the one that is going to be using the iphone. When the phone comes just activate it on line 1 instead of line 4.
Verizon doesn't care what line the phone actually gets activated on and it doesn't come pre activated to a specific line. By ordering it using line 4's upgrade all you did was extend the contract for that line by 2 years. All a contract means is that you must keep that number in service with verizon for 2 years. You can change up features, phones, and plans as you need to as long as you don't cancel service.
