I don't know if this is the appropriate section to post in, but here it goes. So my sister has a contract with Verizon already. She's giving me the option of being added to her line. (I was initially going to start a new line of service with Sprint) We of course would be switching her contract to a Share Everything plan with us sharing 8 gigs of data between us. I'm in Chicago and she's in Nashville. Is it possible for me to add myself to her account with us not being in the same state? Also, is the pricing different for previous contract holders? Once again, I apologize if this is the wrong section for this type of question.

No you cannot add yourself to her account. She would have to add you. She might be able to add you as a signer then you could buy the phone.

Well I mean with her authorization. I'm not going in the store just asking, "Oh hey add me to my sisters line." I meant with her over the phone or something to that nature. What is a signer? How does that work?

Yup, it won't matter. One of my lines is in VA and the other is in MD. She can even make it do you get a local to you phone number.
