If you upgrade on Amazon, it will require a data plan that you can cancel later, BUT, Amazon may charge a fee for the change once you remove the data plan.
I would be best to buy directly from AT&T and have the phones activate at a store.

You're best option would be going into a store or to have it completed. Going through a third party could cause billing issues after the upgrade is completed

Your best bet would be to go to a COR location, and make sure you are a RAU (Retail Authorized User) and you should be able to process the upgrades on those lines, we call this a cross upgrade.
