That's your loss, I guess. I'm headed up to a nearby Best Buy Mobile later this evening to pick up my family's four new iPhone 5s, each with $50 off and 5,000 bonus reward points!

Good for you... I was only getting one phone.... So the time saved was worth the $ for me... Plus I will never miss Best Buy if they go away.....would rather to McDonalds for customer service!

Are you referring to Internet third-party resellers such as Wirefly and Lets talk?
I know it was in my contract for another Verizon reseller I used, but I'm not sure if it affects all resellers.'

EDIT: Interesting, maybe it is just Android then, because that is the device I got there.

Yeah, that's cool, bro. I know how it is when you get sick of a particular company. Like I was with AT&T. We're on Verizon now. The porting process was simple and quick. I left the store with all four iPhones activated.

Verizon's website is so much better than AT&T's.

I bought one four days ago from AT&T and tried to get them to match the deal with at least account credit. No go, so I returned a 5 and went to BB less than a mile away.

A penny saved is a penny earned.

I had one of the best experiences buying a phone at bb today. The guy was very cool and very knowledgeable on everything. I even grabbed there geek squad warranty, free unlimited replacements for 2 years for $15 bucks a month. Cover EVERYTHING but loss or theft. The guy was like you could smash your phone with a hammer in front of us and we would still replace it free of charge. I figured ehh what the hell. 50 bucks off and I was sold.

Awesome deal.

Does anybody know if BBY can add a line and port over a phone number?

I was planning on paying my ETF and leaving TMO tomorrow to join my friends shared data plan on ATT. Is BBY capable of doing all of that or will I have to visit a ATT store?

Yes, BB can do it also.
They can add a line and then port your number to a new family plan. As long as the main AT&T account holder is there with you.

Thanks for the info. My friend (account holder) spoke with ATT today and was told all he needed to do was add me as an authorized user on the account and I should be able to add my line and pickup the phone myself. Supposedly I only need the last four of his SS# and the account passcode. Hmm..

That's correct.
As long as he adds you as an authorized user to the account then you can do it on your own by bringing in your licence or ID.
