I called VZ last week. I spoke with a rep and preordered on a line with unlimited data and an available upgrade. Told the rep what I wanted to do and she explained I could order on the line with the upgrade, when ready to acvtivate, call her and she will switch to my line and the line I ordreed it on will now be tiered, I chose 2GB for $30.
Anyway, got the phone yesterday, did the call. Seems both lines retained unlimited data. Is this too good to be true?

I am on att still have the grandfathered unlimited plan LTE for my iphone 5.. i know they throttle at 5g anyway so did not make since to go to vz to get only 2gs cost me me more. i will never give up the unlimited plan maybe when the next version of LTE comes out they will finally force us all out..

I've always bought my phones in store, so what # is it to call to accept the term and conditions?? Is it the same # that you order the phone from. I have a family member on my plan without a smart phone eligible for an upgrade and that the one I was going to use. Does anything happen to that line??

Just wanna give Peligro911 a huge thumbs up and thanks for all the info and help he gave me. It's much appreciated to have people around that love to share their knowledge with others in need. I'm about to get this new iPhone 5 switched over. Another thanks to all the replies of each persons experience thus far.

A couple of things to inform everyone here.
1) this is my first real post.. (lol)
2) as long as you upgrade a dummy line (i.e. not a smart phone) you can use that line to get a subsidized price.
3) if you activate it on the dummy line (i.e use the upgrade and then turn it on and make a call) you can STILL SWAP the phone to any other line you want.
3) because you need a sim can VZW CAN SEND THEM TO YOU FOR FREE!!!!!!!!!!!
I just did this last night. They are Fed-Ex'ing me a nano SIM but walked into the store near my house (corprate store is what 611 has been telling me) and asked if they had a sim card I could take. They squirmed and they just did it all for me. I was finishing up at the store and the rep gave me my old nano sim and he said they were inclined to believe they could be reused somehow. He guess 24 hours or something but i really dont care. I dont need it. SO just have one sent from the 24 hour help *611 for free. doesnt matter if you activate it or not. Just do a HARDWARE SWAP (thats what VZW calls it) with new sim cards.
I take no responsibility or liability for anything you could try to pin one me lol

I upgraded and paid full price for a 32gb model on Verizon to keep unlimited data. My wife knew I was upgrading but never asked how much I was spending. One of her friends I asked her how much I spent. She simply answered "I don't even ask about stuff like that anymore."

My wife doesn't even know yet because it looks so much like the iP4 !!!! Having fun seeing how long it takes before she realizes (and then wants one for herself).
It killed me to pay full price for the 64gb white, but in the end it's worth it to keep unlimited and not pay the higher cost of the Shared data plan. Why would I pay more money for less data? Easy decision.

Once the phone is activated its yours. You are welcome to move it and then re-add the upgraded dummy phone to not pay for the required data plan that came with the iPhone5.
