    Would I be able to preorder on AT&T using someone else's eligibility, and insert my sim when I get the phone? Not sure if I can preorder off of apples website or if i need to go to at&t.

    Yep. It's called an "upgrade swap", & you can order from either place. You can find a ton of information on Google about it. :)

    A piggy-back question off this (I could have made a new thread, but didnt :D)

    I am using my 2nd line to upgrade, but will the sim card that is currently housing that number be deactivated? My father who lives overseas uses the line when he travels to the US and I can't have that sim card be deactivated for the next time he comes over. Do I need to call AT&T?
