    I was wondering the same thing....only thing is I have Verizon and unfortunately the Verizon phones don't use sim cards.

    Anybody know if it is possible to do the upgrade but not have to trade numbers as well?

    Verizon would know. Why not be honest and ask them? It's not like it's illegal.

    If you're using the GSM version with SIM cards, then yes.

    verizon will definitely let you use an upgrade of someone on your family plan. you can do it online or they can do it in the store

    Sweet, I was planning on calling tomorrow to talk about my plan/charges anyways, so I guess I'll just confirm it with them tomorrow. Probably won't be getting the 5 until November or December anyways.
