Transferring number between 2 family plans?


Transferring number between 2 family plans?

Right now I'm on my parent's Family Plan and would like to transfer my number to my in-law's Family Plan.  I'm also eligible for an upgrade.  I would like to upgrade to an iPhone.  Can I transfer my phone number to the other Family Plan and still keep the eligibility to upgrade the phone?

And how do I go about transferring the number to another Family Plan?
