Buying phone for someone, does this affect their billing?

I was wanting to buy a phone for my girlfriend, as she has the 6s with the battery issue of dying at 50%. She is still on her moms plan so I was wondering if the new phone will affect their monthly price. I will be buying the phone outright.

no she would just swap her sim into the new phone the billing wouldnt change, however ive seen where they added an upgrade or activation fee depending where the phones purchased.
