    No. You can upgrade that extra line, and transfer it to your current line and number, and you will keep the unlimited data. The other line will be on a new two year contract, and your current line will still be available for upgrade whenever it says the date is.

    Oh whoa whoa. I thought you were on ATT as you didnt specify in your post.

    Im pretty sure that upgrading on VZW is going to lose your unlimited plan.... (maybe someone else can shed some light).

    yeah i just researched a bit more, it looks like on verizon in order to keep your unlimited data you have to buy the phone at full price (this is even if you upgrade your main line).

    Sorry :/

    You have to wait until you order, but you better make sure they send you two nano sim cards.

    I recently transferred an upgrade to a LTE phone and I had to use two sim cards. One for the first number and the second one to transfer to mine.

    She thought you were on ATT too.

    Realize though, you are going to lose your unlimited data if you upgrade

    You have to pay the full price of the phone to keep your unlimited with verizon.

    You are able to transfer upgrades on Verizon but you can only do this at the moment you purchase your upgrade phone. So you can't just transfer the upgrade and then go to apple.com to buy your iPhone. This means you can only preorder the iPhone for your Verizon upgrade at the Verizon store on or VZW.com

    If you upgrade, you will lose your unlimited data. I just went through this whole thing with another line on our account, and the second we upgraded we lost the unlimited. Verizon's trying to eliminate all the grandfathered accounts.

    I'm pretty sure Verizon released something that said if you want the new iPhone, you lose the unlimited data?
