We are switching over to the share everything plan in February, so it'll be bye bye unlimited data anyway... The only good thing will be neither of my parents are heavy data users so I'll have the majority of the data pool to myself... I know I won't use more than 5 gigs (with LTE or not)...

She was like oh we'll we can see what we can do .. This is why I'll go down there vs pre order
I think its messed up Verizon is trying to block every way to keep unlimited it's just dirty lol

When you order a phone from a transferred upgrade and try to activate it on another line, the phone is automatically listed as used...meaning that it can be added to ANY line whilst still maintaining the original plan
My advice: Sacrifice a line to a tiered plan (even better if you already have a tiered line that you can just roll over), then activate it on the unlimited plan

Does the idea of transferring an upgrade work if all the other phones on my plan are dumb phones? Is it possible to upgrade with one of those lines (and not sign up for the share everything ) then switch it to my line and cancel a data plan right away?

Wow, the last time I was on this forum this place was TIPB.com. I was here on Verizon iPhone night. Such fun!
ANYWAY, as for the issue here. I too plan on trying the loophole. We have a dumb phone line that is upgrade eligible. I will buy the iPhone 5 on that line + the $30 data plan. I will get the phone here, go to a Verizon store, take the iPhone 5 off that line, put it on my PRIMARY line (unlimited data) and put the dumb phone back on it's original line, then cancel data. Data is not contractual. You can cancle data on a basic phone anytime.

Go ahead and try online transfer the upgrade to your line select a 4g phone ..
Bam box says unlimited data is not avail select a new plan and has the 2 for 30 option
Only way is complete the upgrade on the line that has the upgrade aka sacrificing unlimited on that line if you have or if not then no biggie after that is complete
Then take the iPhone 5 and put on your number and put old device back on the line you upgraded

Ok I think this is what is being discussed but not sure. MY line is eligible for an upgrade....I am not going to use it because I don't want to lose unlimited......if I "transfer" the upgrade to my mom, can she get a new phone WITHOUT me losing my unlimited data?

It's not that big of a deal, I don't use 2GB anyway, but it didn't give me any options, and I am going to need one of my other upgrades for a family members phone, so I didn't really have a choice.
