    I'm on a family plan with 3 other lines...I used my upgrade last year for the iPhone 5 and am not eligible til 2014. However, the other 3 lines have upgrades that won't be getting used anytime soon. How do I go about using one of those lines upgrades for my line if I was planning to buy it at Best Buy day of the 20th? Do I purchase the phone at Best Buy and then take it to AT&T where they will take the other lines upgrade for me and apply it to my line? Or what?

    Best buy shouldn't have any problems handling it. I have gone in with more complicated things than that before with no problems.

    Only thing I would be weary of is they do sometimes try and charge you a fortune for sim cards.

    Could I just use my dad's line for the upgrade, and then call AT&T to deactivate the new 5S SIM and reactivate his old SIM and then pop in my iPhone 5 SIM into the 5S?
