My parents have their own family plan on Verizon, and I am on my own family plan with my fiance on Verizon as well. My mom has an upgrade on her line available, and I want to know if its possible for her to get the iPhone 4s, then switch right back to her feature phone, then give me the iPhone to activate on my account. Can this be done with no changes to her account, except of course extending her contract length? I have used their upgrade before, but I was on their plan since I was in college, not my own. I really hope it could work. I am tired of my Droid 2, unplugging it in the morning and sending a few texts, to have it on 70% battery at noon. My upgrade is not until Feb 12 2012. I HAVE called Verizon before and they said I could upgrade early for a "small fee" but could only do it over the phone and its a one time thing. Chances of that happening again are slim I am guessing.
