Upgrade Question

Hopefully someone can answer my question.  Here's my situation:

 

I am on a family plan, and about 6 months ago, I used my Dad's upgrade to buy an HTC Titan.  Now I have someone who wants to buy my Titan for more than I paid for it, and my phone number has an upgrade now.  Is it possible to upgrade to say an iPhone 4S using my numbers upgrade now even though I upgraded using my Dad's upgrade around 6 months ago?

 

Thanks

Each line has it's own contract.  If you upgraded on a different line but use the phone on yours, you would be fine upgrading your line and selling the Titan.  Look into the locking of the HTC unless the buyer is also on ATT?  Can they use it on the network they plan too?  

 

Now keep in mind that if you dad needs a new phone prior to an upgrade becoming available, he would be paying a much higher price for a new phone.  Weigh all your options but you will be fine.
