I was all set to switch to Edge based on several threads (including this one http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1759885) on this forum. Then I got this info today that messed up everything: You: If I get a 10 GB shared data plan on Verizon Edge and want to have a dumb phone on the plan (already own this phone) what will the monthly line charge be for the dumb phone? I know that smartphones get a $25 discount per line but what is the discount for dumb phones? Kristen: The basic phone would still be $30.00 for monthly access plan. You: There is no access discount for basic phones if you bring your own device??? Kristen: There is no discount on the basic lines, that is correct. Also you are only able to get the EDGE discount on a phone smartphone that is purchased using EDGE. You: So, even though I will be be buying 2 new smartphones and I bought my current smartphone from Verizon, the current smartphone will get no discount on access but will have to pay the full $40? Kristen: If you purchase 2 new smartphone using EDGE you would qualify for the $25.00 access discount if you get 10gb or higher of data. The current phone if it was not purchased with EDGE would not qualify for the discount. You: I read that there is a Bring Your Own Device discount available through Verizon. How does that work? Kristen: I'm not seeing any information regarding a discount for your own equipment on the more everything plan. So it appears that my current iPhone 5 would still be $40/month line charge and my hubby's dumb phone would still be $30/month. The 2 new iPhones bought with Edge would be $15/month but this definitely alters the overall 2 year cost analysis for Edge versus 2 year contract. Dang.
