Am I able to trade phones with any member of my plan?

So my mom's contract has just ended and she is ready to upgrade. I have the iPhone 5, and want to upgrade to the Samsung GS4. I got my iPhone 5 in December, so am I allowed to trade phones with her. So she would buy the GS4 on her contract, but we would swap phones and put my current number onto that phone. Am I allowed to do that? Thanks!

Yes, just have your mom go to an AT&T store and get a nano SIM, put it in the iPhone 5. Then use her line to do the upgrade to a Galaxy S4 for your line.

Thank you! And we would also be allowed to put our original numbers onto the phones, too, right?

Yes, you each get to keep your original numbers.
