A week or two ago I emailed Verizon about adding a new line and getting the iphone on it. Instead of emailing me back, they left me a message on my phone, so I called them back today. The customer service rep said I could add a fourth line and that I would have to use the mail in rebate. I said what? Then she said could I hold, which I did. When she came back she said yes, that they are doing a mail in rebate for the iPhone!!!!!!!!!! I then said so how much up front will I have to pay then? I asked was she trying to tell me even if I add a NEW line, I would have to pay 600 up front? She said hold on again, then I was hung up on. Great... now I have to try and figure out if I'm going to even buy it now. Edited to add that I called them back, and the guy I spoke with said that if you get the 16gig iPhone, you pay 199.00 (same for 32gig) plus they will do a mail in rebate. If that is true, then that's awesome because that will mean it's cheaper than we thought! I hope they know what they are talking about! Also I asked was there anyway I could not pay up front. As in adding the 199 or 299 to my bill and pay when the bill is due. He put me on hold then came back and said no, that they would not do it for this phone. The reason I asked is they did it for my Droid X. He also said that if you preorder on the 3rd, you will not be charged until it ships, so I'm thinking that it still takes the money from your card and holds it until they charge you. I asked when they were shipping. He said the day after the 3rd.
