Re: Verizon Upgrades Question

I am looking to upgrade my GF's GNEX to a GNOTE II. She has unlimited data currently. My account has 4 lines, 3 with unlimited and 1 with shared (4gb). All 3 unlimited plans have upgrades available.
I would like to keep our unlimited plans for Myself and her. I would like to upgrade the 3rd line (Droid 2) to a GNOTE II. This will upgrade that account to a shared plan.
I would then like to swap the GNOTE II to my Gf's unlimited line, and have the D2 put back onto that 3rd line with the new shared data plan.
I will end up swapping my Bionic (unlimited plan) with her old Gnex.
Is this possible?
I dont want to have to shell out $800 bucks to get her a new phone and would like to utilize amazons $199 upgrade price.
Any advice is appreciated.
Well, since this is a family plan, you won't have to worry about switching anything to a shared plan. If you upgrade 1 of the unlimiteds, that line will have a limited data plan. Everything else you mention should be possible, but I have to ask: Do you really need the other 2 lines to be smartphones? If you don't use them often, it might be financially prudent to switch them to dumb phones and save yourself 60 dollars each month because then you won't need the data plans.
A rep might tell you that this isn't possible, but people have been doing this even recently. Although I must say that they really have been frowning upon this practice recently.
