i want to upgrade my phone but I'm wondering what the smarter decision is: upgrade with the edge program with my existing number and then change my number (because i want it changed regardless of what i do) or just close out my number/phone all together and start over and get a new number/phone with the edge program (because i def want to use this deal)

What plan are you on currently and how many GB of data do you get each month?

What phone are you wanting to get?

I would get a new phone first, and then change your number. You can do it online:

My Verizon | Verizon Wireless

Are the other 2 lines on a contract? 2 year or edge? (just want to make sure you're getting all your savings)

Get the iPhone on the Edge program. You will get to save $25 on the $40 access line fee and then the 16gb iPhone monthly payment is $31.24.

If you do a 2-year contract the 16gb iPhone is $300, but you have to pay a $40 line access fee, no discount.

Edge program makes the iPhone around $150 after keeping it 2 years.

IF you are on contract now adding iPhone on Edge with $31 payment fee, but you get -$25 discount for Edge, so net is on,y $6 more per month. 

I Would advise upgrade Edge, then change your number.

You asked about hidden fees.   There is no fee to upgrade with Edge, but you do pay sales tax up front on the retail cost of the phone.   Because of this, you don't pay communications tax on the installment payments on your monthly bill  ( which can be very high, depending on your state.  California has 25% comment tax, Florida is 22%, Connecticut is a mere 13% )
