    My wife and I are both looking to upgrade to the verizon Incredible 2 phones (primary and secondary lines).

    I see all of these adds for free or very cheap phones through sears/wirefly, TargetMobile, etc. They offer the Inc2 for "free" when upgrading a Family Plan primary line - and let you order more than one phone. However, if I order the same phone specifically for the secondary line, it's $80 or more.

    What prevents me from ordering two phones for the primary line (for free) and then activating the second phone on our secondary line (versus ordering one for primary and placing a second order for the second line at $80)?


    I'm confused on how this would work - I know I can't pick a cheaper plan after the fact without additional fees, but what's preventing me from doing as described above? Pitfalls to this strategy?

    Just read their terms and conditions for plan changes... usually they have a stipulation where is you change your plan within six months of activation you are subject to extra fees... sometimes in excess of $200.

    Read carefully and make a decision. The main thing is, when you order from Wirefly or anywhere else, if something goes wrong with the phone... you need to contact that company (who can be infinitely harder to deal with than Verizon).
