I have a busineess account on Verizon with 25 lines including 4g cards, dumb phones 4 iphones, and 2 ipads (many which are eligible for upgrade). I haven't purchased the new iphone for 2 reasons, i want to see what i like better in person white or black and the unlimited data deal.
I want to make sure i have the correct proceedures as i have never had to worry about loosing the unlimted before.
1. Find line avaiable for upgrade (any line doest matter smart phone or not correct)
2. Order phone through that line
3. Phone arrives do not turn on call verizon and activate on my number.
Please let me now if I am missing anything

Just made the switch to the Iphone 5. On my droid razr I had unlimited data as well as unlimited hot spot.
When I went in to verizon today and added a line to upgrade to the iphone 5 without loosing unlimited data and I also told the vzw rep I wanted to keep my unlimited hot spot or I didnt want to upgrade. He Tried to activate the iphone one way and it removed the hot spot feature then he tried it another way and it kept hot spot.
so for $230 + $30 more a month for another line since I went from a single plan 450min to a family plan 750min
I was able to pick up the iphone 5 16gb with unlimited data and unlimited hot spot!
Last month was the first month I had 4g in my area and I used 14GB of data between my phone and mobile hot spot. I use hot spot as my only internet connection so I had to keep the unlimited data/hot spot

I'd love to subsidize and keep unlimited. I have one line that is ready for an upgrade. If I get it through that line, leave it off, activate it for my line; will I still keep unlimited? That's how I've assumed these other posts mean... I hope hope hope it's right.

Ugh, reading elsewhere, it's said the upgrade line has to be a dumb phone.. not already included on the unlimited plan.
So, here's my situation. I have three smartphones. The main line, Rezound, has until Dec. of next year, so it's on contract. My line, iPhone 4, off contract, and the HTC Incredible, which has an upgrade available. I want to purchase it as an upgrade for the Dinc, but transfer it to my line, and put the Dinc back on there.
Will I lose unlimited data in this scenario?

I was unable to on the VZW site when I was pre-ordering. But I'm going to go complain in person when I'm back home for Thanksgiving. Our local VZW store knows us and the business we give them, so they should (hopefully) give me my unlimited data back. Especially since I purchased through Verizon at full price without changing my contract!

The thing is when you get the phone no matter how tempted do not turn it on or the phones sim will try to register with the line x automatically once that happens even if Verizon has to reassign SIM card you have to wait so the system can push it thru
If you don't turn it on the Verizon swaps the esn so when you turn on the phone the sim registers with line z instead and your good to go and it don't effect your unlimited
