    If you are wanting two smartphones, the short awnser is no, because of the data plans. You could give one of the upgrades to your line, but you will have to activate it. after that you can switch back to the phone you are using.

    You could always buy the phone, but they have to be activated when you get them. Here's the trick... you can most likely reactivate the other 2 phones after you buy the phones with a contract, and it will renew the contract. I did this with the Droid X when I had the Motorola Droid 1.
