    Here's the situation:
    • Me - I have an iphone 6 Plus on ATT Next. Can't get a new one until Dec 12, 2015
    • Family Member 2 - Has iPhone 5s on ATT contract which just ended and is itching for a Rose Gold 6s Plus ASAP
    • Family Member 3 - Has iPhone 5s on ATT contract which ends sometime next year
    • Family Member 4 - No phone


    Here's the plan:
    • Me - Get a new 6s Plus either on Apple iPhone Upgrade Program or ATT Next
    • Family Member 2 - Trades in 5s and gets a new 6s Plus either on Apple iPhone Upgrade Program or ATT Next
    • Family Member 3 - Gets my current ATT Next iPhone 6 Plus
    • Family Member 4 - Gets Family Member 3's 5s still under contract


    Is the plan doable? Can I transfer iPhones still under contract or not upgradable under ATT Next and get two new 6s Plus's on Sept 25? I just can't let Family member 2 have a 6s Plus while I have just a 6 Plus

    If I understand correct, see no reason why not. Looks like you will have to pay full price for your new 6s+ is all

    I assume you're going to open up a new line for Family Member 4? If so, then buy your 6S Plus by opening up that line and then just transfer for it to your line (yes you can do that). The rest should work out as you described. In other words, yes you can transfer phones between lines. The contract or payment plan stays with the line it was purchased on.

    Yes. I'm on a family plan with 5 lines. I usually upgrade my phone every year. I rotate between my upgrade and my grandmas. However, recently when I signed into AT&T I noticed the option to transferring a lines upgrade to another.

    You might need new SIM cards but I'm not positive about that.

    Yup! I called AT&T and spoke to a very nice lady from Iowa. I told her what I wanted to do and she said, "Heck yea we can do that!". She said to do exactly what you stated. Thanks for the reply.

    She then, out of the blue, told me that AT&T was offering 15 gb of data for the same price of 10 gb. She swapped me over to 15 gb before I could I could get "yes" out of my mouth.

    No problem! Glad that the rep corroborated what I suggested. I was aware of the 15gb promo too, I should have mentioned that. I wonder if they'll ever do another "double data" promo? I jumped on that last year when they doubled the 15gb plan to 30gb. And with rollover data, it's perfect for me and my family of 5.
