    I am thinking about adding a line and getting a Droid X or other smartphone on that new line with the discounted price.

    What if I were to buy a cheap basic flip phone off ebay or wherever and when the new Droid X or smartphone comes I activate that old flip phone on my new line and keep the new smartphone for myself??

    That way I only have to pay $10/month more than I am now.

    Would that work?

    Any success stroies from doing it??

    supermario - did you activate the droid x on the new line then swap to the old flip phone and then put the droid x on your line or did you never acivate the X on the new line at all and just give it the flip?

    I did this...ordered the DX, activated it on my original line, activated an old flip phone on the new line.

    Don't forget the taxes will make it more like $13-15 for the added line.

    As long as you dont terminate the new line of service it doesnt matter what type of phone you have on it. If you are ok with the additional 13-16(with tax) a month you are golden.

    For the $600 the extra line will cost over a two years, I'd rather buy the phone outright.

    Yea, some people would rather pay 10 a month for 24 months instead of a lump chunk of change. Same reason most people finance cars. The majority of people dont have 17grand laying around to pay at once, but they can afford 300 a month spread over 5 years.

    Ive done this before. Verizon doesnt care as long as the new phone gets activated. But the ETF for the new line is still the smartphone price whether you actually activate the new phone on it or not. Thats what we were told.
