4s upgrade on family line


4s upgrade on family line

I have 4 lines on my family plan, 2 are Iphones and 2 regular without data.  I'm looking to upgrade my iphone but am not eligible for an upgrade yet. My brother has a regular phone without a data plan. I was wondering if we can have my brother upgrade to the iphone 4s, add a data plan, then give me the iphone 4s when my time is up and cancel his data plan.

Re: 4s upgrade on family line

You can take one phone's upgrade eligibility and use it on the other. Please note that the data plan would have to follow the phone and the contract would stay with the line that was upgraded.
