    So i bought the droid x for retail price on newegg.com. When it comes in the mail, how do i go about activating this phone to my account. Do i have to bring it into verizon?

    No you can activate it at home. Just dial * 228 then it will ask you for your phone number then it programs it to work to your account then you are good to go.

    I did mine online in the my Verizon section of my account. Just swapped in the # on the box and it handled everything else including instructing me to call *228.

    There seemed to be a tiny mixup in the programming and shortly after I had to call Verizon and they walked me though a manual re-program.

    you will have to activate phone on the line you ordered for first, then you can transfer phone to your other line. All that takes about 10 minutes.

    Well the line we ordered it on doesnt have a data package, so im not sure it would be able to be activated, unless we go to store...am i correct? If not would you mind explaining how to do it?

    Call Verizon when you get the phone. I got the X on a new line- but a put an old phone on the line and put the X on my line- same family plan. They didnt give me a problem at all.

    download backup assistant on your current phone, and it will allow you to transfer all your stuff very easily
