    Two separate question do not use fact from first for second

    Second. My wife who is on my family plan has no contract (expired). I have 18 months left in my contract can she get a blackberry under BOGA with a two year contract and give me the second (free) blackberry? What happens to my contract?
    JOE - to answer your first question, yes in order to take advantage of the BOGO you would need to extend your service agreements out on 2 different eligible lines... .. hope this helps.

    Thanks, that is what happened when I got the two storms for me and my daughter.
    That got me thinking about what would happen if my wife were to get 2 blackberries under a BOGA plan. Both my daughter and I have 18 months left on our contracts.

    just to answer your second question.. you have to have two lines eligible for the bogo, you would have to add a line if you were going to upgrade your wifes since you have 18months left on the other two

    If you add a line to get a new phone you want say for instance S2 and then transfer that phone to your existing line. Then after 30 days you cancel the new line you total cost for the S2 would be $179 (phone) + $9.99 (add a line) + $30 (data) + $175 (EFT) your total cost would be $394, instead of the retail price right?

    By doing that, would you loose warranty rights to the S2 since you technically canceled the line it was bought for?

    Mind if I toss additional info into the mix?

    Also, have your friend throw caution to the wind... "Unlimited" Broadband Access is capped at 5GB/month (so it Tethering). Exceeding that for more than 3 months can be very costly. The BBA is designed for e-mail, general browsing, etc... not for large file downloads (movies, iTunes shows, etc.).

    Tethering actually gets billed as a separate line item from standard phone data access.
