Ordering the new iPhone using a different lines upgrade
I'm ready to make the plunge with the new iPhone however I'm not eligle for an upgrade for a while. I'm on a family plan and my grandma's line still has the same phone from 2006. Does anyone have experience ordering an iPhone on launch day on one line of a sprint family plan while intending to use the phone on another line? Will the phone come activated so I will have to inactivate then reactivate it on my line? Can I have the phone shipped to my address or will it have to be shipped to the billing address of the plan? Sorry if these questions are rookie but I've never purchased an iPhone. Last question, is it better to buy through apple in this scenario or Sprint? Is the iPhone available through Sprint at launch or only Apple? Thanks for all your help can't wait to dive into the forum everyone!

When the Verizon iPhone4 came out - I didn't have to set foot in a store. Pre-ordered online, then followed the instructions that came with the phone to activate - then hooked it up to iTunes and synced music, and started installing apps.

I am in the same boat & newbie
Tomorrow for pre-ordering:
I will be using my daughter's upgrade since she used my last year. Will this deactivate her phone as of tomorrow or until I receive the new iphone?
Does anyone have any idea what time the pre-ordering will start online?
I am dumping my android for the new iphone - hope its the right move.
