Okay, so I'm upgrading a line that doesn't have a smartphone on it already and they want me to add a data plan. I'm going to use this on my line, so do I just order with the data plan, then cancel the plan after I activate it on my line? Will I be able to do that?
So you have an inactive extra line, that you are going to upgrade? Wouldn't this be like me using one of my sons upgrades and activating it on my line? If that inactive line is eligible for an upgrade, they don't care what line you use the upgrade on. I'm not following why they are asking you to add data, just tell them you want to upgrade that line and use it on your line.
I've done this time and time again
Roger just go in and tell em you want a new i4S and explain you are using an available ug from another line, yes they will technically have to add data temporary to this "other" line and it will also jack up the voicemail of that line but they will take it right back off and all will be fine. Reset that voicemail for whoevers line it was and all is good
That's what I was saying. Both sons have iPhones, my youngest sons line was due for an upgrade. I used his upgrade to get my i4S. I do it all the time. They don't care, they're just chasing that two year commitment. As B said, just tell them what's goin on. Do you still have a micro SIM in that Berry or is it full size? They did the upgrade on his line, I took my SIM and popped it in the i4S and was off. Maybe the only diff I see is we already had data on all three lines. IDK.
