    Sorry for asking a lot of questions. mfg:
    lol you are ok.. tetherberry yes and no.. as long as you dont blow the 5gb hard cap on you phones data you should be fine,i.e.- you use it very rarely just as a back up, you will be fine. sometimes there is.. there is really no set way to upgrade your phone for sure, as there have been alot of ppl taking advantage of the fact that the reps were being nice vzw has started becoming more strict on this. but your final option adding another line.. just an hypothetical, S2 drops you add a line to get it at the lower price, then activate an old regular phone on that line and put the S2 on your line that is perfectly legal as long as that line remains active until its contract is up you will get no ETF's. Hope that helps

    This is all so confusing, so it sounds like the easiest way to do this when the Storm 2 comes out is add a second line @ $10/mo for one year? Pay that up front and ask them to put the storm2 on my original number. Will I get the promo price for the Storm 2 when adding a line for a year? Will I want them to put my origanal Storm on the new line or should I use an older phone that I have laying around? If I pay the year upfront $120 can I Cancell it soon after setting it up or does it need to remain open for the year?

    yes you will get the 1 year contract price on the S2 if you open the line, and if you pay the 120 upfront wont help you at all.. you need to keep the line open for the year.. usually the 1yr price is at least 40 more than the 2yr price so that is up to you but yes that is the best way to do it. What did you want to use tetherberry for? the thing is they have a5gb hard cap on your unlimited bb data.. knowing that 5gb is hard to hit from just the phone.. say now you use .5-1gb a month from the phone.. if you download and use tether berry and go from that amount to 3.5-4gb they will notice the 3gb jump and it will raise a flag in the system.. now if you use it little bits just as a secondary means of connecting from the laptop you should see no trouble or if you slowly up it. like over the course of a couple of months work from .5-1gb up the 3.5-4gb.. that will not raise a flag you will just need to keep an eye not to go over the 5gb does that help? and hows your girl BTW

    do verizon salesmen make a commission for VZ Navigator? the guy who sold me my storm put it on without asking me, told me the first month was free and i would have to cancel within 30 days to not be charged for it. this was after waiting 45 minutes for him to set up my phone (when he said it would take 20) so i wasnt going to hang around and get him to remove it.

    he was pretty helpful overall, so i wasnt about to get pissed about it or anything, but i was wondering if he did this because he recieved a commission, or if he was just trying to be helpful.

    i plan on canceling it anyways. everything i would need it for can be done for free with the google maps app.

    I do not believe that they do. You can remove it with crackmem or crackutil.

    Neo, true...but if he is running a .191+ OS, those apps may brick the device.

    typically yes.. they almost always put the things that are free for 30 days on there if you want it or not... I dont care for that strategy but managers do. The salesman make most of their commissions on things that a monthly charge... ie- vzvpak, vznav, bbplans, and connect and what not. I think some of them over step the boundaries by adding things without your permission but hey... i know where they are coming from.
