    Sorry if this situation has already been covered, I searched and couldn't find anything.

    I am the primary account holder on a 2 phone family account. The other line on the account lives across country (don't know if that matters)...

    We both have a 3gs, and are both going to upgrade to the 4s using the online pre-order. The problem is that he is out of the country for a few more weeks... Since we are both upgrade eligible, how will the purchasing work? Do I need to buy both phones to get the upgrade pricing on both phones? Can we each just order them separately whenever we want?

    Wondering if the renewing contract issue has any bearing since it's two separate phone purchases. :confused:

    Thank you for reading and thank you for the help!

    Upgrade pricing on one line has nothing to do with upgrade pricing on another line. You can upgrade any line whenever you choose to. But keep in mind that a backorder may appear shortly after the pre-ordering starts.

    Shipping might be an issue. AT&T (which I assume you have since you said 3GS) at one point in the past required the phone to be shipped to the billing address. Apparently some here on MR have gotten around this somehow.
