If I go to the AT&t store and purchase the phone off contract, do I still get the $100 credit?
Also, if i do, Do I have to buy the phone with the owner of the at&t account?
Yes, the $100 credit would apply, even if purchased off contract. The credit is not immediate. It shows up on a future bill.
Ok, but currently I am not the owner of the account, my sister is.
Do I have to ask her to buy the phone?
Someone who is more familiar with family accounts can help you better than I can. As far as I know, you have to be authorized to make changes to the account to go without your sister. Other that that, your sister would have to go with you.
