    OK so my situation is this. I got the 3GS in 09. I'm on a family plan with my dad and bro. My dad has the main line. I am the only person who uses a smartphone. They use flip phones(Razr). My 2 questions are

    Can I use one of them as an upgrade even though they have flip phones, and never have bought an iPhone?
    And if I can will buying the iPhone 4 through them result in another monthly data fee being added to the acount?

    What I want to know is can I upgrade through them or do I HAVE to find somebody with an iPhone who's contract is up? And if I am able to upgrade through my dad or bro does another iPhone data fee get tacked on the monthly bill?

    Give your cellphone company a call. They will let you know.

    Yes, you can use any line that is eligible for an upgrade.

    Only the line that has the active iPhone will need a data plan.

    Can you call AT&T to switch phones between lines, or do you have to go to the store?

    Actually, all you have to do is trade SIMs. You only need to call AT&T if you need to add/remove features such as the data plan.

    You also might need to call/stop by a store if you need another micro-sim. Activate it on the right line the first time and that won't be necessary though.
