    My family is elgible to upgrade phones on Verizon. My line is an additional line, so I am only elgible to purchase the Tour at the 2 yr contract price. I have read that you can upgrade your phone on the account holder line, and then do an ESN swap to put it on an additional line. I have a few questions though. I read that I'll end up needing to call a Verizon CS rep no matter what, so:

    • I'm assuming when I try to do the ESN swap on the Verizon website, it will give me the number I need to call. Do I just tell the rep I am attempting an ESN swap and they will make the switch for me?
    • How do I switch the account holder's original phone back once the Tour is on the additional line?
    • Also, if by chance I get a faulty phone, what will I need to do if I have to exchange the phone?

    Thank you very much, I searched this and didn't get specific answers. I apologoize if I did miss something already posted.

    you have the option of an alternate upgrade, meaning to have your phone upgraded on the primary line for the ne2 discount and then give it to ur #. so u basically are renewing the primary lines contract instead. easier and saves u the hassle.

    as long as the rep does it right, u wont have to esn swap back and forth. cuz the fone will come pre-programmed to ur #.
