My line is not eligible for an upgrade since I used my upgrade November 2011. Another line in my family plan IS eligible for an upgrade. However, that line uses a basic phone. Is it possible for me to use that upgrade to get the iPhone 5 for myself? Would there be a problem since the iPhone uses a micro-sim card? The line used for the upgrade would still be using a basic phone with a regular sim card.
I called a few AT&T stores about this and some said they would do it, and others said told me to contact a corporate store. I explained to them that I used my eligible upgrade in November, and I want to cross upgrade using a different line under the same plan that is eligible for an upgrade. My line would be a smartphone line but the line's upgrade I would be using would still be a basic phone line. I told them that I understand the iPhone uses a different sim card and I asked if I would be able to use the upgrade for me, and keep the line whose upgrade I would be using to remain a basic phone with a regular sim card. I was told that BOTH lines would have to have a data plan - and this does not seem right. Why would the basic phone line need a data plan to do a cross upgrade? How do I know if the AT&T store is a corporate store or not?
