...I have two lines eligible to upgrade before the twenty-eight and both are on 3G smartphones with Unlimited data plans. I am also on account level billing. Currently each of these two lines are paying $29.99 for the data plan. The iphone was the primary line and currently receives the employee discount. When I have called to get that discount for the other smartphones the rep laughed with glee telling me that I am lucky that they haven't taken it from my former primary line. Well, well, well...going through the motions of an upgrade to 4G handsets I discovered that these two lines WILL receive the employee discount on data plan, but if I try to change to an inactive 3G dice. Very clever Verizon!

I tried it today and it failed. Loophole closed apparently.

It's always been that way. Only primary lines qualified for feature discounts and that carried over on ALP to the line that was previously receiving it. Nothing should change. On the new tiered plans you have to be on a $50 feature or higher to get the discount, but the $29.99 unlimited remains eligible on what was previously the primary.
