    Hey guys,

    So I have a family plan with two lines, both have iPhone 5 on them. I want to upgrade mine so here is what I was thinking:

    1) Add a line and buy the new iPhone 5S
    2) Swap numbers with my iPhone 5 and the new iPhone 5S plan
    3) Cancel old line that had iPhone 5 on it and pay the $230 ETF

    Still would break even because I can sell my iPhone 5 for roughly $500 on eBay.

    Is this possible? Or would I have to cancel the new line and pay the $350 ETF?

    TIA!

    you pay the smaller etf by canceling your number, not the new number.

    Oh okay. So I'd have to pay the larger ETF to keep my number? Can I do that right away?
