Keeping Unlimited Data, Upgrading in-store

So, I plan to upgrade another line to the iPhone 5s, and then to keep my unlimited data, I would transfer the 5s onto my line when I get home. My question is, does this method work? Last year I did it with the iPhone 5, but I was told not to activate it first. But since I have to purchase the 5s in-store they're going to activate it under the other line. Can I just use the online option "Activate or Switch Device" when I get home or do I have to call customer service?

Great question carneasadafries! You can actually utilize either method you would like. You can simply wait till you get home and then change the devices online by visiting Please keep us posted of any additional questions, thanks!
