    I'm planning to use an update from my family plan to get the iPhone 5. It is a normal, non-smartphone currently.

    When I go to add the iPhone to this line, is it going to force me to add mobile share? I ask because I don't want to lose the unlimited data on my phone and my dad doesn't want to lose his a la carte plan either?

    What will happen when I go to put this iPhone on the line? Will it cancel out my unlimited and my dad's a la carte plan?

    How did you buy the phone? If you paid the outright price for them, they shouldn't touch your plans.

    I'm planning to use the update on Friday. Then activate the iPhone as my own and cancel the added data plan on the dumb phone line.

    Okay, when you order an upgrade, that LINE - read again - that LINE is now a 2 year line. They could care less what phone is on that line. Or any other line. You could throw the Iphone in the trash and put a flip phone on all of them.

    If you are going to move that new phone to a line that already has unlimited,it will still have unlimited.

    The line that temporarily had data can revert back to non data.

    Does AT&T still offer individual data plans for family lines?
