Do you think this would work? I currently have an iphone on a plan with another line on it (family plan), the other line is currently eligible for an upgrade. What I want to happen is purchase a new iphone for myself at the 199 price and also get another one with the upgrade on the other line also at the 199 price. My plan is to then take the other iphone and cancel the data plan, but still keep the 2 year contract, and then give the new iphone to an "ineligible" ATT customer (girlfriend) and see if ATT will activate the new iphone 3g on the "ineligible" account with the iphone already in hand regardless of the eligibility. I hope that makes sense! UPDATE: I spoke with both parties involved (ATT and ) and they both said that could be done. ATT just said dont report the new iphone lost or stolen.
