    Jesus could you be more of VZW Zealot....5bn in Free Cash is hardly going broke, learn economics 101!!!! No Coverage, Please!! But I guess this is the only CARD VZW fanboi's can play when some mentions getting better Value elsewhere, because we all know Verizon sucks at providing Value.

    See you in the Sprint forum Joe!

Another said it qualifies... right now my budget is tight and the $20 more is even stretching it.

    If not, I guess I could switch my Razr over? However, I am concerned if i take the centro off I can not get it back on without paying the data fee...
    I'm assuming you have no data plan on the Centro. That means you should qualify for the promo afaik

    I was just on an online chat with VZW CS and was told that the promo could not be applied to a primary line upgrade. Did I get a clueless CS rep, or does this actually only apply to secondary lines?

    What I would like to do is use my NE2 and the Droid 2 Global BOGO to upgrade my line (primary) and one of my secondary lines and have the ~$10 credit applied to both lines, primary and secondary. Does anyone know for sure if I can do that?

    The primary line isn't a 9.99 add a line or secondary line. Only secondary lines can get it.

    Speed Test with DSL internet with AT&T(Bellsouth). Horrible.

    I currently have three lines and I am thinking about adding a fourth as a smartphone. The main line currently has a smartphone activated on it and the second and third lines are feature phones. My plan is to activate a feature phone on the main line so that I can sell off my current smartphone and then add a fourth line to take advantage of the smartphones talk free deal. Would this plan work, so that I would receive the $9.99/month credit?

    Tell the rep to refer to the press release. It clearly says in BOLD.

    To take advantage of the Smartphones Talk Free promotion, customers will need a Nationwide Family SharePlan starting at $69.99 monthly access for 700 Anytime Minutes and add a $29.99 data plan for each additional smartphone. Customers currently on a Nationwide Family SharePlan may have a total of up to five lines, and receive the promotional credit on each new line that uses a new smartphone. The $9.99 credit expires after 24 months. The offer ends Jan. 7, 2011.
    If all 5 lines can get the $9.95, that would include the primary as well.

    Not sure where you see that it says all 5 lines are eligible.

    As long as you keep the or a smartphone on that line with a data plan of 29.99, then you will get the 9.99 credit each month. If you swap it for a feature phone, then it will go away.

    The part that says each new line with a smartphone can receive the promotional credit? Perhaps you should read it again.

    Main line can't get the 9.99 discount because it is the primary line and not 9.99 a month.

    I get a 25% off home depot discount on data. Can I get that discount and the $9.99 discount on top of it?

    Maybe you want to read "each line with a new smartphone..." but what they actually wrote was "each new line with a smartphone...", which doesn't necessarily mean the same thing.

    We have 3 secondary lines, all with Droid X's and Droid 2's. We got them before the promo started, so I was unable to use the credit. So, I went online and changed one line to a Gzone Boulder I have. Left it for 20 minutes, then switched back. Called back, got the discount. Then, I put the Boulder on line two. Waited 20 minutes and switched back. Got the promo online 2. Did the same with the 3rd line, and now my bill is 30 bucks cheaper a month!
