    Hello everyone! I have a quick question about using a 2 year upgrade on At&t for the preorder tonight. I currently have unlimited data and I want to use an upgrade on a different number on my account, however, the only upgrade I have available is under the line I have for my grandfather, which is just one of those cheap flip phones.

    My question is, would using the upgrade from this number force me to sign up for a data package? Or will there be an option to port the upgrade over to my line somehow? Thanks to everyone for your help!

    I would call ATT they can probably give you the upgrade but probably not going to be an easy process online will have to do in store or over the phone

    It will require adding a data package.

    No this information is not correct. You can log into your account and swap the upgrade to your line. Note it moves the contact but does not affect the phone number of features.

    Just log into your online account and check your upgrade status for your line and you will see the information "Use someone else's upgrade eligibility" right below your line upgrade status.
