Nothing has changed regarding the use of an upgrade for a different line. Verizon allows you to do it directly through their website. All it does is save you the hassle of activating it on the eligible number then shuffling things around so the new phone is on the line of your choice.
You can do that after upgrading through a 3rd party dealer but their policies may charge you for doing so.
