Congratulations on the new line! A new phone is always an exciting time.
Since your dad already have an account with us, depending on the number of line he currently has and the number of lines he was approved for when he started service, he shouldn't have any issues adding a new line.
If the new line was not approved you would have already received an email advising you that the new line was not approved. You should have your new phone in no time.
If you do not receive an email with the shipping information I can take a look at the account and see what's going on. Just follow me, JohnB_VZW, and send a direct message with your name, mobile number and billing password. Keep in mind that you need to be authorized on the account for me to provide account information.
