With smartphones now in almost every
pocket, Verizon is on the right track with the $9.99 per line
discount it offers if you buy a new smartphone on a multi-line Family
SharePlan. The offer waves the monthly additional fee for an
additional line and can save you up to $240 per line for the two-year
span of the contract. It starts on November 19th, just as
Holiday season approaches, and ends on
, 2011. You can have up to four additional
lines on a Family SharePlan and a new smartphone for each one of
those would qualify you for the $9.99 discount. As Verizon puts
it, “This is an ideal option for customers with a spouse or child
wanting to move to a smartphone”.
Unfortunately, it seems that existing
smartphone users will not be included in Big Red's discounted plan.
Only a new smartphone purchase on a Family SharePlan line and
subscription to a $29.99 unlimited data plan will make you eligible.
