    Is this going to work? Regarding upgrade

    I really don't think there's going to be any issues with this, but I figured I'd ask.

    My mother is eligible for an upgrade, she is going to let me use her upgrade to get the Bionic (we have 2 different VZW plans). I would then take the Bionic when it arrived, and activate it on my plan, and I am giving to give her my DX.

    Should I be able to do this without a hitch?

    Do you think going into the store with her and her buying it on her upgrade, taking it home and activating it on my plan would work as well?

    Even though it's 2 completely different accounts? For some reason I don't think it's going to be that easy.

    It works just like if you were to sell someone your phone. As long as the device's SN isn't black listed, they'll activate whatever you bring with you.

    Alright so here's the scenario, my Mom and I both go into the VZW store Thursday night, and she says, I want to use my upgrade, but he's going to activate the phone on his own account, and then I'm going to take his old phone and activate it on my account.

    Just like that?

    I guess I'm thinking it's going to be a lot more complicated, but now that I think of it, it sounds super easy. I thought I was going to have to do it on their website.

    You can do it just as you said above. They have no reason to tell you no, they sell a phone and get a new 2 year contract from your mom, which is what they want.

    They could care less who uses the phone after the sale.

    Damn, I just got super excited. Here I am thinking I'm going to have to wait until Saturday (with shipping) to get this thing in my hands.

    But she'd still be getting a new 2 year contract even though she's getting a hand me down?
