    I called and got the plan this morning (didn't get an email, but just found it on a google search). I passed the info to a friend who currently doesn't even have a data plan. He called customer service and they said they don't have such a plan, so then he called the 877 number I had and they gave him the plan (159.99 for 3 smartphones). I specifically asked the lady if it was a promotional offer. She said it was promotional in that it is only being offered for a limited time, but that once you lock it in then that is what you pay as long as you keep that plan regardless of whether or not they scrape the plan (which has been the way it has been in the past).

    Here is how my account is noted. I was already getting a 25% corporate discount off my base $59.99 plan($44.99) and 20% off my $29.99 data plan($23.99). I am now getting my unlimited data plan for $8 if they do the $20 discount before my corporate discount or $4 is they apply the $20 after my corporate discount. Either way I am more than pleased.

    That's how mine looked until that post.

    But as I said, Verizon said it shows on their end and noted that it may be a glitch in the system as I'll be moved down to a lower plan come the 11th. At the moment, the change is pending.

    Well I called in and asked for the promotion (did not get an email) and had no problems. I was 0n the 1400 Minute Family share with unlimited text and two $29.99 data plans. They did not even say a word about having to extend my contract a year.

    wow...
    I think this is the first time I have ever seen anyone here be genuinely appreciative of Vzw and the things they do for customers.
    I am very appreciative of VZW, they have been good to me. They didn't have to upgrade me to my Bold, or my Droid X. I have seen a lot of people here act like Verizon owes them something, because they pay their bill every month. I am not one of these people. I figured it was worth a shot to save some money, but I was not entitled to it, so I am not mad I didn't get it.

    I did have to extend my contract a year, but it only affected 1 line and it actually only extended it by 9 months because the contract for my line is up in February and it's eligible for upgrade now.

    I think it only needs to be extended if the contract expires within the next 12 months. My wife and my mother's contracts don't expire until 2012 so it didn't do anything to their contracts.

    I didn't get the e-mail but I went to the above site (sorry, not hot due to post count) and I called this number 877-873-3278. The guy hooked me up...no questions asked. He did warn me not to drop to the 450 plan (I'm currently 900) because it has no F&F...good looking out on his part...All I can say is don't give up...

    You could kindly ask that Friends and Family be added to the 450 minute plan and they would gladly do it for you. I did it and so did my friend with no questions asked.

    called the number.......5 minutes....done, no problem. He did say contract would extend 1 year but I had 11 months left anyway. Also added the friends and family to my 450 plan.

    He also backdated the plan so it goes into effect immediately. woot!

    I was told that it couldn't be back dated since I lowered my plan from a 900. Had I of upgraded to a higher plan it would of been possible...

    Did you have a 450 plan before you did this?

    Glad to hear you got it! I was only using 60 out of 900 minutes a month so I asked and they did it for me. I'm much happier paying for what I use rather than what I don't use.

    Thank you, that would explain why I couldn't back date my plan. It's not a big deal, it'll be a new billing period on Thursday anyways.

    My cycle started this past Sunday, my new 450 plan (down from 900) was made active today and my next bill will be pro-rated.

    Well after three different reps, a faked email and plenty of time later I finally got them to give me the 1400min family plan with data (same as I had before except included data) I'm stoked about it!

    I already went out and upgraded my dads LG Dare to a LG Ally for him and my wife will be upgrading tomorrow to the Samsung Fascinate! I'll stick with my Blackberry till at least June when my line comes up for upgrade if Blackberry doesn't have a new GOOD touchscreen by then I'm jumping ship unfortunately.

    It looks like you have the new plan.
    Note the $20 discount.
    That is the discount for the new data plan.
    They charge $10 for the additional line, then $30 for data.
    They then discount $20.
    This gives $20 per line for unlimited data and text.
