Your mother won't lose her data plan by giving you her upgrade, but an appropriate data plan will have to be added to your line if you don't already have one and you upgrade to a smartphone.

You would have to subscribe to one of the new tiered data plans - $20 for 300MB (?) or $30 for 3GB. You can't get the smartphone unlimited data plan anymore....your mom can keep hers, but she can't transfer her eligibility to keep that plan to anyone else.

I can't get the unlimited plan, even if we buy an unlimited plan? Why?
the unlimited smartphone plan was discontinued a few years ago, it is no longer a option for new smartphones. the grandfathered unlimited plans are tied to the number that it is on, as long as your mother keeps a smartphone on her line she keeps the unlimited plan, any new lines added to the plan with a smartphone are required to pick from the existing tiered plans. Smartphone data plans are per number / device not account.
