When the phone is physically received, call CS and tell them you want to activate it on the unlimited line before any setup is carried out on the phone to make sure the sim is pure.

I have no capped line yet. I have one upgrade available on another line on my account. VZ told me that the line I transfer that upgrade from gets capped. Now I am confused. What should I do? Are you saying do the upgrade on the line that has one, choose 2Gb for that one, and then when I get the phone, before activating switch the phone to my line which is unlimited at the moment and will stay that way?

I spoke again with Verizon. They confirmed, order the phone on the line with the upgrade available, choose the 2Gb or whatever tiered plan you wish, when it arrives call VZ and tell them you want to switch the 5 to the number that you actually want it on, activate. That way, the upgrade line gets the capped data and the line you actually want the 5 on stays unlimited.

So if I buy the phone under her line then switch it to mine, I keep unlimited?

Wondering if someone can answer this for me...
My wife and I had a 700 min. plan with unlimited text and data. When doing the pre-order it notified me that we would no longer be able to maintain unlimited data. However, it did not offer a share plan to me nor did it give the option. So I selected 2GB data for each line.
I figured I could just call them once the phones come in to ensure that we are placed on the shared data plan. Will this work?

It's not that I necessarily want to do it but I'm not completely opposed to it. My wife and I aren't data hogs and could actually do better with our data usage by using Wi-Fi more. I think that we may be able to leave Wi-Fi on on these phones.
Our DROID Xs don't have the battery life to support leaving it on all the time.

Theres been a ton of posts from people trying to keep their unlimited data, and they all say you cant upgrade to an iphone and keep your unlimited data.

FYI for those that have unlimited data on their plans: You can only keep them if you pay the retail price for the phone. if you use your upgrade and pay for the subsidized price of $199(instead of $649 un-subsidized-retail/full price) then you can either pick a tiered plan or go along with a all share everything plan(if you plan to drag other lines to share a capped/limited data).
