Okay, okay. I know there are threads about this but I am looking for concise answers to my situation. I have two lines on a five line family plan that are eligible for upgrade. I just found out about this today at 6PM because I am a moron. Ugh. So, one is my son's w600i Sony. The other is my mom's Blackberry. I want to do the upgrade swap because neither of them are looking to upgrade right now and me and my wife want the 3GS. (We both have 3G bought on launch day.) Problem is, ATT stores all around us are sold out. However, I think I can find one at Apple and/or Best Buy. But I was under the impression that I can only do the upgrade swap at a corporate ATT store, but now I am thinking that I might be wrong on that based on hints in other threads. So, first I need to know IF I can go to an Apple store and get the upgrade price on someone else's upgrade? Second, I need to know how it works? I mean, will they activate my mom's number on a new 3GS and her phone be screwed up for a while? Or, can I leave the Apple store or Best Buy without activating it at all, and then just go to ATT and sort it out? Any help is appreciated, and again, I apologize for a somewhat duplicate thread in advance.
