    anyphone would be good for her I would suggest the envy3 or possibly the samsung intensity depending on how much you want to spend. Not sure of prices off the top of my head. The only way you would get the s2 is by adding another line or getting it as your daughters phone and then activating it on your line. but then you would need a phone for your daughter still.
    J,
    My current plan is AC Family Share Plan 500 min.Current bill is 152.45,breaks down like this, 2 bberries w data,250 text,assurance.using 350 minutes average.Does that sound right? Is there a better way? What will it add to add a line?Trying to do it online,I get a message that says I have to go to a store or call in and update my plan. Just want to know what to expect.
    Thanks

    If you added your daughter you would be going to Nationwide 550 $59.99 for the first 2 lines 9.99 for your daughter = 69.98 +2 $5 text package(250 mgs)+ $10 text package(unlimited M2M 500 out of network highly recommend for daughter)=89.98+ 2 $29.99 data packages=149.98+taxes(figure about 12%)=167.98

    so that would be about the best you could with out dropping a BB off the plan

    Thanks for your help so far.Went to my local Verizon store today and they said they "could not" offer me that plan.They said I would have to go to the 700 min plan thats 69.95 per month plus all extras. Are they blowing smoke? I am trying to get ready to do this for X-Mas and am kindof also waiting to see if any other deals come out before the holidays.

    Hey Jnepsa,

    I know you do not want to be asked about release dates, but I was twittering this evening and I came across a dude that aid his local VZW Mgr. told him that the HTC Passion/Dragon was coming out Dec. 4th. Do you think that there is some truth to VZW getting this phone at all?

    You shoudl call CS and ask to be 100% sure like watkins said I am sure they will but there is always a chance they wont. I would just call as soon as possible to try and see if they will let you.

    Jnepsa, As you know i just swapped my Storm1 for a Storm2 under the "Multi-FRU" rule. When I did this the Verizon Store Manager told me that it wouldnt affect my contract expiration date at all, I told him this was important to me because I am waiting for the HTC Passion to be released so i can get that. He told me that I can do the Multi-FRU to get the Storm2 and when the Passion comes out, I will be able to get it by signing up for a new contract since my 1 year contract expires 1/10/2010. My question is why would VZW change my upgrade date to 6/2011 after i did the Multi FRU? My contract expires in 2 months, this doesnt make any sense.. right? Will I still be able to let my contract expire on 1/10/2010 and then sign a new 1 year at that point when the Passion is released? I just dont understand why VZW would tell me my upgrade date is now 2 years away and I will be out of my contract within the next 2 months!

    I was also available for an early upgrade on 10/10/2009, but when i called VZW yesterday they said that the Multi-FRU wipes that out... I told the Rep that i was told different info from the store Manager and the Rep proceeded to inform me to go back to the store and speak with that Manager..

    All i want to know is, Am i going to be eligible to get a HTC Passion when it's released? Thanks!

    When you accept a multi fru it doesnt change your contract but it changes your upgrade eligibility 2 year. So you will be out of contract before you are eligible for a new phone. Its the way they can give you another phone for free or very little.. Its the way it has always been done. I think by the time the passion/dragon is to be released you will have your one year eligibility available again but that is my opinion.

    Ok cool. So that means that after my 1 year contract ends I will be able to do whatever I want as far as a new phone.. The extension of my upgrade date basically means nothing and as soon as i buy a new phone and sign a new 1 year contract that date will extend again but since I sign up for 1 year contracts that date means nothing.. Cool thanks!

    No no no... It means I don't think the passion will be released until late next year. You will not be able to get a new phone until your eligible date.

    Oh, that's not good... How can VZW control what I do after my contract expires in Jan/2010.. Hypothetically speaking, if the passion comes out in Jan/2010, Cant i just just close my account and sign a new contract? of course after my contract would expire. I'm confused......

    yes.. but you will lose your number, they will let your contract expire before your upgrade date it seems silly but what do I know. lol if you dont mind getting a new cell phone number than yes you could cancel just to get a new one, but you would not want to do it on the same day, some places will let you some wont. its known as false churn, because we let you cancel a line just to get a new one for the better price

    WOW! What a mess! I will head to the VZW store and speak to the Manager that gave me the Storm2 and see what he can do for me.. I may be better off exchanging the Storm2 and getting a Storm1 until the Passion comes out so I dont have to worry about this

    Jnepsa, I really appreciate you help with this!
