Seriously, why not do both to be safe? Just add a new line and have the store manager take care of the new line, and you pre-order on the other at midnight. Then, later you can just cancel the new line. It’s only a $20 line access fee, and $30 activation fee, so you essentially are just paying $50 for the privilege of having two options. In the context of laying out over $1,000 for the phone, an extra $50 is really really insignificant, so to me it’s a no brainer --- Post Merged, Oct 3, 2017 --- I completely disagree. The whole purpose of the pin is to serve as a way for a Verizon employee to verify your account and you as the account owner without you having to give up your account login password. Citibank does the same thing when you call the customer service number and the rep asks you for your security password/code. The key element is that this code is seperate from your account login password, so the risk of cyber attacks is low just based on the pin.
