    So My mom is thinking about getting rid of her iphone and switching to a duncephone.

    I am on her plan, and eligible to upgrade.

    Can I just get the phone she wants, and then swap sims and take over her iphone?

    The real question is, she is grandfathered in to the $15 a month data plan, I don't want to pay any more than that, should I be able keep that rate, or will att try and shackle me with the $20 plan?

    Yeah as long as you're in the account they should be able to transfer data plans/features.

    Who is your carrier? I know for a fact AT&T will not transfer data plans or features to other lines, even if they are on the same account.

    oh its at&t.


    Right now I am thinking we will just swap sim cards if we do it.

    its under the rents plan. they originally screwed up and had the iphone listed as my sisters. I think its still a bit off. But If I cant get the grandfathered rate then I will just skip it, I'm not paying those bloodsucking parasites another penny. I dont mind if i can get it at the old rate, but im not paying more because thye think they deserve it.

    You cannot use an AT&T iPhone on sprint.
    And to the original topic you cannot transfer a plan that's no longer available to another line. You either keep it or lose it but stays with that phone number.

    I guess att doesn't want my money then.
    I just hope these rumors of apple entering the market as a service provider prove valid, I would love to see them pop those ticks at at@t & verizon.
