    If Verzion goes BOGO with Storm 2 will you take advantage?

    If Verizon does go with BOGO with the Storm 2, are you going to take advantage of it and get 2?

    I'll start off and say YES I AM!!!! Upgrade line #1 and create line #3. OR create line #3 and line #4 haha.

Please let me know. Cause a two year contract would equal out to just over 1K. Would it make more sense to just buy it flat out for the 600 that it would likely be? I'm confused.
    Pay the 9.99 added line, select the bb data cap until you get the phone in. Then remove the data plan. ETF with verizon is only 145.00 max.

    i say h3llz no to bogo lol...but really i dont want a free storm 2 from verizon...if its in the $199 for a 2 year agreement...maybe i would buy...but the storm2 is mostly a software thing for me...i dont care about wifi...its running the same processor as storm1...ok a better click screen...more memory...i almost sound like i want a storm2 thats what gets me...i wouldnt have anyone to give a bogo too...no relationships for a storm2...nooooo!! but everyone in my family has verizon...mom..dad..grandfather...sister..brother. .and nieces...so no bogo for me. my sister wants the storm2...she has 2 lines with her daughter...so if they do bogo could she get 2 storms2 add to her line then cancel one storm and give to me 1 storm?..but thats doing too much i think...she would only have to pay one bb internet charge but i dont know...verizon may want you to pay for both bb's on the same bill.

    I will, even if it means having to buy a full retail phone for the person who currently has that second line available for upgrade on my account.

    Plus, i can then sell my S1 and get a hundred or so back on my investment.

    If it releases at $199 + $175 ETF = $375 for S2, I could swing that...probably not the $600.

    I'd be in for the bogo on Storm2 - even though my wife would have a phone way beyond her technical aptitude !

    I am going to redo this post as the last one was very confusing. Ok since you are all talking about adding a new line and upgrading one of yours.. or even if you are going to add lines to do BOGO if it happens. This next process is the proper way to do it to avoid problems .

    Go get the new BOGO phones. After, whether it be the same day or next or whenever, put the new BB's on the lines you want them on(i.e.-555-555-5550 is your existing line, you add 555-555-5551. Take the BB you added on the 5551 and put it on the 5550), then activate another old phone on the new line(i.e.-take a phone that doesn't require data and activate it on the new 5551 line). After that basically wait til you get your first months bill for the new line to cancel. reason being- when you add a line there is a 30 day worry free guarantee which waives the ETF... but you have to send the phone back if you do that. So wait until after that then cancel the new line pay the ETF and voila. does this make better sense?
