    Im just curious about activating a new phone, and sorry if this has been asked before, BUT. I'm on the family plan and i was curious if i were to "activate" a new line and put the Tour on it, would that count as "new activation"? So then i would be able to get the tour for 199.99 as im already ON a two year contract (with a year and a half left)? As the ad's say with new activation and 2 year contract? Sorry if this has been asked before, or no one knows the answer, aaand i should just call them and ask? Or im guessing thats totally wrong and i have to extend my contract for 2 more years haha.

    Yes, you can add a line for 9.99 to the plan. This line will have a 2 year contract.

    Yea it's a way to get a Tour cheaply, BUT you then have to pay 10 a month for 2 years. You could also put a dummy phone on the second line and give it to one of your relatives as an emergency phone.

    Welp we have 4 lines now. Is it 175 to cancel a contract per phone line or per account? So would i end up owing 580.00 total for the 4 lines, ooor 145.00 (as im 6 months into my 2 year) for the entire plan to be canceled and start over fresh with a new 2 year with just one line? Aaas my parents want to go back to a local cell phone company and i want to stay with verizon, and for the Tour as well.

    ETF is a[[lied to each line cancelled. Also each line per month into the conrtact will have the ETF reduced per month into the contract. The min etf would be $60 per line

    I have another question regarding family plans. My wife has an upgrade available in July and our 5th line was activated without buying a phone. Can I (account holder) use one of the upgrades to buy the Tour? Or would I have to add BB data to another line? I'm the only BB on the account and no other line wants/needs a BB.

    You should be able to with no problem, you have to sign a new contract for the data plan.

    I don't want another 30 bucks a month. That's the only hold up.

    Just to clarify would you have the Storm and the Tour? Or just the Tour?

    I would like to have just the Tour. Its not really important. Just seeing if it can be done.

    You should be able to transfer any upgrade to another account!!! BUT if you use the upgrade on a line that doesnt have a data plan(ie the blackberry data plan) it would have to be added! Any smartphone through verizon HAS to have a data plan!

    I know that smartphones need a data plan. I was hoping to take my Storm off the account and put the Tour on. There fore there would be just 1 data plan if possible. But I guess not.

    That would work, you just have to leave the line active at 9.95 a month, or put a dummy phone on it. You could then switch between the Storm & the Tour on the line that has data. Or just put the Storm in a drawer (or sell it)
