Can I use another upgrade for my device on an Edge plan?

Member

So I am currently on the old edge plan where you can early upgrade at 75% with trade in then full upgrade at 24 months. I broke my iPhone 6 that is currently on that plan with no insurance or anything. My mom has an upgrade for her phone (she has the iPhone 4 with no contract or anything and plans on keeping it forever basically). Obviously i will be continuing the payments on the 6, but can i use her upgrade and get another phone on an edge plan and switch it to my number?

I  am here to make your confusion disappear heyman69. It is nice of your mom to let you use her upgrade to start a new device payment plan. I see rschnoor has it exactly right that you would be paying out the current device payment plan on your line & then a new one on her line as well. Your line access charges though are based on the number of lines on the account. Two lines on the account = two line access charges. The only way there would be a 3rd one is if you open up a 3rd line on the account. Does that help to clear things up for you?

You can do this, but you would then be making payments on 2 iPhones. Then if your mother breaks her phone, she will be required to pay full retail for a replacement.

Do i have to pay an extra line access charge for the new phone? We are both paying 40 each for the smartphone line access. If i use the upgrade will we be paying for three $40 line accesses or just 2 still?

I thought you were upgrading it with DPP on your mother's eligible line, not opening up a new line of service.
