unlimited data w/ iphone 5?

hi all, i'm sure were in the same boat here, trying to find a way to get unlimited data for the new iphone 5. verizon has confirmed that if you want to upgrade your unlimited data line, you will need to switch to a tiered data plan. however, i'm on a family plan, and my question is: if my brother is eligible for an upgrade (who doesn't have a  data plan), and i upgrade his phone on his line to the iphone 5 (which will switch him to a tiered data plan), and then after deactivate the iphone from his line and put it on my unlimited line, will i still have unlimited data? technically, i didn't upgrade MY LINE, so it would be as if i bought the phone for full retail price and just added it onto my line. also after i switch his phone back i could change it back to the cheaper data plan and not get charged for it. can anyone shed light on this for me?
