I just called Verizon to ask to sign up with 2 new 4s iphones for the family plan of 1400. I currently have AT&T for my family plan, but also have a Verizon Mifi device for $35/month. They told me that I had to wait until November to upgrade my Mifi account to a full fledged Family plan. I told them that I could not wait and that I'll just renew at AT&T. He asked me if there was anything else he could do for me.
Yes, there is << Please keep your posts courteous >> ! Get some common sense or math skills, I just now purchased it all from AT&T. You squabbled over 4 months worth of $35/month for $450 sign up and $220/month (with data plans/hotspots,etc). If you can't do that math, I don't want you for my cell carrier anyhow. Thanks, happy to stay with AT&T, they just got my $450 and will continue paying them $200/month for the next 2 years. lol.

You could have added two new lines and had 3 total lines with verizon..not sure how that didnt happen when you called
Unless you were trying to upgrade your mifi early or something
I didn't want to get into detail on this since it's a moot point, but the
first guy I talked to said that I could upgrade my hotspot to 2 phones. He
confirmed that, then passed me on to the next guy to go ahead and
purchase/set it up. The next then tells me I can't do that and that the
previous guy was wrong. It doesn't make sense for me to have a hotspot and
a new iphone, it does, however, make sense for me to have an iphone with the
hotspot added. That way I don't have to carry around the old mifi hotspot.
I was willing to pay a termination fee on the current hotspot account in
order to do this, not a big deal, but we didn't even get to that.
While it makes sense, it doesn't. Hence the subject line. I was about to
buy two new iphones with 2 year contracts upgrading from a verizon mifi 2200
(old school). I'd pay the term fee, not a big deal, but he didn't even
offer that option.
No, but there is one issue I forgot about. I remember something about if you cancel a contract you have to wait a few months before you can come back to Verizon. Maybe that was the problem with that approach. Also, a MIFI contract is not a voice plan, so I don't think you can add phones to a MIFI contract. It sounds like Verizon has some restrictions that might not make a lot of sense. Maybe you could have done the ETF and then opened a new account in your wife's name.
