so i thought i had lost or had my cell phone stolen after class today, canceled my plan a little while later, and then found it tonight.

whats the deal with  starting my service back up? is it possible? gotta fork over alot of fee's? get new number?

its a Verizon family plan(5 phones). no data plan or anything, just regular service.

If it's a dumb phone, with a standard key pad. It probably will not be a problem getting your old number if you canceled earlier today. If it has a texting key pad your probably screwed with a new $9.99 data package.

The new data plan effects the env3. It's something that went into effect 1/18/2010. ALL PHONES except the basic phones require a data package of $9.99 or more, because Verizon decided that we all needed data.

I'm not sure if you can get your number back but they usually hold the number for a couple of weeks, so the new owner doesn't get a bunch of calls. Or maybe the rep. that helped you just put a suspension on the line. The longer you what the less likely you could get it back.

Maybe. But they may make you take a 1yr contract. If you didn't already have a contract.

Edit 5 phones I don't know if they will do that anymore.

sorry, i meant to say that i canceled just my phone, not the entire plan of 5 phones.
