    I have a question regarding switching phones to put on different numbers..I will be getting a Droid but under my fathers upgrade...he doesn't want a new phone or anything fancy just his cheap old flip phone...I talked with verizon about moving his upgrade up a few weeks early and they only did it because i said his phone wasn't working properly...So when I go to the store they will put his number on the droid...

    I don't want to ask them to do an alternate upgrade in store because I told them them my fathers phone wasn't working in order to get the early upgrade...I don't see why it was a big deal in the first place as my upgrade date is the end of december..Could I just do the number swap online when I get home and put my dads number back on his old phone? Can I do all this the day of and still get the rebate? Does it cost anything for them to do an "alternate upgrade" in store? Thanks!

    Go ahead and do it on line. As long as its a Verizon phone you can associate it with your number. One exception -- blackberries have to be activated on a line with a data plan.

    Could the swap be done online the day I get the droid and still get rebates and everything?

    Yes.
    It must first be active on his line.
    Once that is done. You can move the phone to the other line.

    It's not a big deal.
    I did it with a BOGO on a BB Storm.
    Added a new line for my daughter and immediately moved the Storm over to my wife's existing number the put my wife's old phone on my new account.

    There is no ESN number listed on my fathers phone... all that is under the battery is MEID, S/N, and FCC ID...What do I put in on the website to swap it back?

    THE MEID will work just the same as a ESN
