    That would be the ideal way to do it as you want that double data line in place first. However, I would still call VZW support first and see what they have to say. The challenge might be to find a CSR that knows how to do a number transfer from postpaid to prepaid. I've never done it personally.......only read about it from different posts. From what I've read, you need a VZW prepaid CSR to make it happen. Another post said you contact the VZW "migration" department??? It might take a few phone calls to make it happen. Good luck.

    In Verizon's FAQ you linked, there is this sentence:
    Note: You can't replace an existing prepaid number with a ported number. You can only port when activating a new prepaid account.
    Taoman, have you done the numbe porting after getting a new prepaid number?

    Thanks.

    Yes I have. Twice. I saw that line and I don't understand why it's there since it goes directly against my experience and also what you see when you login to My Verizon (prepaid).

    When you login to My Verizon and click on "Change Mobile Number" you have the option of choosing a new number or to "Port an existing number." And below that it says:
    You can replace your current Verizon Wireless number with a number associated to your landline or other wireless service.
    So I really don't understand why that line is in the FAQ. Am I missing something?

    Edit: I ported in one number from Page Plus. I also added a second line to my account (for a buddy so we could get family plan discount rate) and after adding the 2nd line (3 weeks later) I ported in his number from Boom! mobile from within My Verizon.

    I was in my local Walmart this afternoon & there was a sign for the double data promo. So it looks like the original report that the promo was only available at Vidapay dealers & Verizon's website is not actually correct. So anyone who wants the promo should be able to get it by purchasing the $10 SIM Kit & refill card at Walmart.

    Thanks for the eBay lead! We got the $40 3GB + 3GB plan for son. Account shows just the 3GB from sign up 2 days ago. Do you or anyone else here know how/if/when the bonus 3GB will show up? I can’t find anything in their FAQ’s.

    Where exactly are you looking? On the phone or on the web?

    You need to look at the amount of data remaining. Or on the web you can go to View Balance Details and highlight Credits. You should see that the double data promo was added.

    The plan itself will always read and remain at 3 GB..........because it's a 3 GB plan. It just happens to also have a 3 GB double data "lifetime" promo. But it's still a 3 GB plan.

    Thanks @taoman. I was checking on website and it's even simpler than that. Just had to scroll down on main account page and see data balance 5.7/5.7 (hmm not a full 6GB?). and then click "view data details". Good to go now

    Same displays at my local Wal-Mart. The only sim card I see is the $10 BYOP kit. They were sold out of Verizon branded phones though.

    Yeah the $10 SIM kit was the SIM I was referring too. I'm probably going to port my number this weekend from AT&T prepaid to Verizon prepaid for the double data.

    I purchased the $10 SIM kit and $50 refill card at Walmart today & I'm going to activate it tomorrow morning. What will I need to port my number from AT&T prepaid? Just my account number & account PIN?

    Yes for the account number you have to call in to get it and the account pin is the 4 digits you set up for the account.

    I just finished setting everything up including my online account & auto pay and the double data is not showing in my account. I already had to contact them twice by the online chat this morning. Once because the port was stuck & then because I couldn't create an online account. So I'm going to contact them again now to have them look into why the double data isn't showing up.

    Yea, the double data should have shown up when you log on to My Verizon. Unless Wal-Mart a employee has to do the activation. 😮

    Keep us posted on how it goes.

    I didn't get a chance to contact support yet through chat because I'm not home but about 20 minutes ago I got a text saying "Congrats! We've added 8GB bonus data to your account. It's still not showing in my online account though. I'm not going to worry about it right now, if it doesn't show up by later next week I'll contact them again.
