    I thought that you were able to add a line by dialing *228 from the new handset

    I have switched several phones, both dumb and smart. I find the easiest way to do it is on VZW's site. In your account there is a link to switch phones, and its real easy to do. I like it because you avoid the activation charges. After you do the switch online, then you do the *228 thing, and your set.
    No matter where you go, there you are

    You can do it through *228 option 3 but beware most of the time it is very buggy sometimes it will just transfer you to a Cusomter Service Rep i have yet to have a successful one programed through *228, but most of the time i will just do it through the internet :-)

    Its very easy to switch with my Verizon. Just log in, and then clicm activate phone enter info. Now all you have to do is dual *22899 from new handset and you're good to go.
