Ok, I'm not 100% sure if this is the right place to put this question. Anyways, my mom and I are part of a family plan. She has a dumbphone with no data, while I have an iPhone 4s with a data plan of $30 per 2 gb per month. I've had my iPhone 4s since January 2012, and she's had her phone since 2009. Her phone is now eligible for an upgrade, but my phone will not be eligible for an upgrade until September 2013, so to hell with waiting. I want the iPhone 5 right now, so what I want to do is to use my mom's upgrade to get an iPhone 5 for $199. I want to keep my existing data plan of $30 per 2gb/month, and use my existing data plan with the iPhone 5. My mom still wants to keep her existing dumbphone with NO data plan, because you know how older people are (no offense against the older generations)--she doesn't need data! Is such an upgrade possible? If so, do I have to visit a Verizon store to complete this upgrade, or can I go to any 3rd party retailer like Best Buy? I am afraid something might go wrong; for example, I might be forced into a more expensive data plan that's like $50 per 1 gb mad. Or my mom might be forced to buy a data plan for an extra $30 per month mad. Any advice? Thank you!! Note: I'm pretty frustrated right now because I finally found a store that had the iPhone 5 (Radioshack) and the two guys there spent 1 hour trying to figure out how to complete this upgrade...with no luck.
