So I'm going to be adding my fiance onto my plan(currently a single line with unlimited data) and am able to keep my unlimited while just getting her a 2gb plan. My line has an upgrade available and I was hoping to take advantage of the BOGO deal for the M8 by purchasing a new one for her line, then swapping the new phone to my line and my upgrade to her line and getting the 2nd one that way. I was told that's a no go.

Is there anyway I can make use of that deal without adding a 3rd unneeded line? Or can I just buy her phone today with the new contract, switch my upgrade to her line in a few days and then go buy another one at the 2year contract price without me losing my unlimited?

Possibly doing this tonight or tomorrow, just wanted to see the best option.

You can't switch your upgrade to her line, you will lose data still I believe

So I'm just stuck with either buying it outright, or staying on my current phone? bummer. Thanks though.

When I asked about transferring my upgrade to my daughter's line they said I would still lose my data. Her line would get the phone but my contract would be extended and would lose my data with the new contract.

I tried to order the m8 on the verizon site and when I get to the order page it automatically sends me to a more everything plan and there is no stand alone plan to choose from. What am I doing wrong here?

I have 2 unlimited data lines already and want to add 2 more lines to take advantage of the buy one get one free m8s.

Was you daughter on a smartphone line....
From my experience having the line as a dumb line --no smartphone on there makes the switch. Flawless the system sees the switch as new money coming in as a new smartphone plan...so if you were to reduce your daughters line to a dumb line..no data...then do the transfer upgrade from unlimited line to her now dumb line you then choose a new 2gb plan for Just her line...you will see all the changes just before you agree and place order...
Plan would look like....9.99 for the add a line( daughter)
29.99 for unlimited data ---you
Your minute plan lets say 700 just for example..50.00
Then another 29.99 for your daughters dats pln(new one)
Done...

Now when adding. Lines YOU should see an option to just add more lines to your nationwide plan and then each new phone would have its own 29.99. Each individual 2gb data pln...
I have had this happen to me before as well when adding new lines.....I stop and call customer service...as adding
Ones is a lot different than. Transferring upgrades....

You should be able to switch your upgrade to her line without messing with your unlimited. I think your best option would be to just ass 2 lines and get the bogo for them. This way u always have. that 3rd line available to bounce upgrades off of.

In order to do the switch it has to be done via my verizon web.....first add her new line ..get phone.....then on my verizon(after her phone is active and set up), do the transfer upgrade tab...transfer dorm your unlimited line to her line...order phone.....once phone arrives activate on her line for a little while....then switch to your line.....
The unlimited line will now have a new 2 year contract and unlimited will remain...
