    my friend is leaving USA for few months and wants to get rid of his iphone plan by paying early termination fee, if i take over his phone line by doing Transfer of Liability with at&t , am i changing the data plan some how? right now that phone is on family share plan (9.99 + $30 for data) , is it possible for me to transfer that phone on my account under my family share plan and have the same data plan carried overed to me?

    also if i re-size the sim and pop it in my iPhone 4, will it just work ?

    You would not lose the data plan. I just did this the other day from my moms name to me. Nothing on your account is changing except the name- EVERYTHING stays exactly how it is. Plans, rollover minutes, special features, everything.

    If you take over the acct and phone you keep the unlimited data.
    If you just buy the phone then you have to choose from an current data plan.

    Bottom line: data goes w/ the acct not the device.

    Yes. Voice and data are completely separate. Changing one does not affect the other.

    so that means taking over his plan is a good idea ? would the contract be extended cause of a new owner now?
