    I'm considering locking myself into the unlimited data plan with a Thunderbolt, and I want to add my gf onto my plan to save some money. Problem is she is still under contract and won't be added on till later.

    She doesn't care about data or smartphones so that isn't an issue. My question is will changing the plan to a family share plan and adding a line force me into a tiered data plan?

    Absolutely not.

    Is she on a Verizon account of her own? If so, you can do an Assumption of Liability, which would basically take her existing line off of her account and put on yours. It doesn't break a contract, so no fees... just transferring it from one account to another.

    Thanks, though I'm not sure how that would work since she is on her mom's plan still

    Just keep in mind that if she chooses to add data on her line in the future, she will not have the unlimited data. Just because you have unlimited data does not allow her to get it.

    It won't effect your unlimited data, but she'll have to choose a tiered plan.
