Here is an odd question for my fellow android lovers.

My inlaws want me to put a phone on my plan for them. They just want a dumb phone and nothing fancy. I want to try to take advantage of this to score myself a new phone (currently Droid X). Could some of you help me out with how I could make this work. I'm think that I need to do the following:

A- Purchase A dumbpone out of contract for cheep (from where?)
B- Get a new line with my new smartphone (D3, T-bolt, Charge, INC2?)
C- Put the dumbphone on my current line. Then switch numbers for the new smartphone and dumbphone.

Does this sound right? Thanks in advance!

Couldn't you just put the dumbphone on the new line, after you activated the new line and got the smartphone. Than there wouldn't be a need to switch numbers?

Hoping I read your post correctly, excuse me if I did not!
Brilliant Idea...although I still would be changeing numbers on the smart phone but it is one less number to change I suppose.

Add a line using a basic phone you provide. It will immediately show ready to upgrade in Verizon's systems. Then go into the store, the Rep can do an "alternate upgrade" using the contract on the new line, but putting the phone on yours.

Its pretty easy. :p
Thanks that sounds super easy!..now to find a basic phone!!
