Upgrade to iphone 5 using another upgrade

I have 5 lines on my plan. Only one line is a smart phone which is a droid and is not eligible for an upgrade until May 2013. 3 of the other lines on my plan our eligible for an upgrade but are not smart phones. Would I be able to use one of these upgrades for the iPhone 5 and activate it to the line that my Droid is on? My only concern is committing to another data plan on a line that is not a smart phone. Thanks for your help

Thank you mdram4x4 for your response. I appreciate you taking the time to help our fellow community members.


I understand you not wanting to add an additional data plan on a line that will not be needing it. As mdram4x4 mentioned you can use the upgrade eligibility of your other line to get the iPhone 5 on the line that already has a data plan. You can do an alternate upgrade, which is basically just transferring the upgrade to another line on the account. Visit for more information.

Keep me posted if you need further assistance. I'm happy to help.
