Using family member's upgrade and switching the number to mine???
I was not eligible for an upgrade, buy my mom's line was. I used her upgrade to pre-order the iphone 4. When it arrives in the store, will they be able to switch it over to my phone without problems??? The receipt and online says that if it will be used for a different line, both phones need to be present in order to change the number. I don't live anywhere near my mom...does anyone know if they can change the iphone 4 to work with my number even if my mom is not present at the time??? Thanks in advance...

I'm still a little worried about the sim card. Since the new iphone uses a different sim card, it will come pre-configured for my mom's phone number. Can att reprogram the sim or will they have extra micro-sim cards available???

I used her upgrade to get my 3GS as well and she isn't on any kind of an iphone plan (data or otherwise). She uses a motorola razr and doesn't have any iphone/smartphone plan in connection with her phone line. Can you please explain what you mean?

If you don't sign up for an iPhone data plan then you will not pay the lowest $199/$299 for 16GB/32GB.
Last year my line wasn't elgible. I couldve paid $599 for my 3GS or use my wifes line and get it for $299 with two year contract on her line with an iPhone data plan.

I guess we'll see what happens on the 24th...
Seems like a lot of people did it last year without issues. Anyway my wife and I both have iPhones with data plans. She's due for an upgrade. Why should AT&T care which line the new phone gets used on?

Apple/ATT arent dumb,,, they will discount it only if they know they can get it back in form of monthly payments with 2 yr contract
