    Question about terminating a line on my family plan

    So I have decided that I am going to get a Moto Droid. I have a family plan with 2 9530 Storms on the plan. Here is what I have figured out will be my lowest cost method over all. I have decided that I will add a line on my family plan and get the droid for that line, I have also decided that that I don't want to put a dumbphone on that line and pay the $10 as it will cost me a total of $240 over the 2 year period. I started my plan in august so my ETF is still $175 which is cheaper than the $240 it would cost to keep the added line. My main question is can I add a line and then switch the droid over to my main number and swith the Storm1 to the new line then cancel the Storm1 line for the $175. But someone said that if I do that the storm then becomes connected to the new line and my ETF will be $350. I will just switch numbers if that is the case, the hassle of changing my number is better than having to pay the huge etf. So I guess my main question is, is the contract tied to the phone number or the phone that is on the line?

    I am not sure if you do not have to pay the ETF before you can switch your phone number. I know you can add a line and use that Droid for you old line.

    Enclosed is a link for one of BBOSs members that I believe is a VZW rep and he can answer your question.

    You will not be able to do what you are Thinking. The contracts are tied to the phone numbers and you would have to cancel your main line th get the 175ETF.

    ok sounds good. So I guess I'll just have to make the new line my main line when I do the etf on the first line?

    Thanks for the help. Even though I am jumping ship to the Droid I will still have a Storm1 on my plan so I'll still be checking out these forums
