    I'm looking for 3 lines with either. Like an old family plan with data. They are cheaper than mobile share right? Where can I go to find people selling them.

    I get fan and a discount with verizon but I hate how it's only on the data not on the lines. Any help?

    Can someone explain how it works?

    Old family plans are gone. You can longer get them. You can still get an individual plan tho.

    You can still get Verizon's nationwide family share plans, they are just not advertised. No need to buy them from anyone unless you're wanting an unlimited data plan.

    I know the individual plans are still available but not advertised but are the family plans also?

    Yes. You just need to ask for them. Share everything is NOT a requirement on verizon.

    And talk to customer service for it. Stores are for sales.

    Really? I've called cs and they offer me the mobile share. So I need to be persistent? Seems like I'd have a dogfight trying to get a family plan

    Yeah I've encountered the same, I know they will offer the loyalty plan $60 (Unlimited Voice, Text 2GB data) and Individual (450, 900, unlimited) but I have yet to be able to get anything on the old family plans (Which my discount will be bigger)

    I just saw on eBay auctions where they offer info to get unlimited data plans whether you're an existing customer or a new customer. Seller advertises I can get unlimited data as a new customer. I asked the seller about this and he responded that yes I can get unlimited data but corporate discounts won't apply. Anyone have an idea what this info is? I see he has a good feedback and others who've bought his auction have been satisfied. Any idea what this method is?

    That method sounds a little shady, but if the seller is getting positive feedback, who knows.

    I'm finishing up selling some AT&T lines and the transfer process has been pretty easy, all done over the phone and no issues keeping the unlimited data. From what I've seen, this is easily done on Verizon as well, but both involve taking over an existing line of service, not adding features to your own line.

    Yeah I said I wanted new service. No corporate discounts has me wondering what it could be though. And subsidized pricing on phones too

    With Verizon, unlimited only carries over during an Assumption of Liability if it's being transferred to an existing account under the old nationwide family/individual plans.

    You can attempt to try it and see if it carries over to a brand new account, but you'll be stuck with the line and out the money if it doesn't work.

    Verizon you pay $40 per iPhone. Data plans start at $40 for 500MB per month.

    Apple has a chart on their website of the plans (link below). The price is a bundled. For example if you select $90 per month = $40 per smartphone line + $50 data plan 1GB. and $40 for each additional smart phone or $10 for each iPad.
