Can I trade up to an iPhone 6 on a family plan?

I'm stuck on the iPhone 4 without an upgrade until next August, and the phone is barely functional at this point.  I'm on a family plan with both of my parents, and my mom says that I'm not eligible for the trade-in for the free iPhone 6 since it means I would have to sign my own contract. (I'm in college and obviously paying for my own phone bill is the last thing I want to do).  I've been trying to call to find out if she's right, but apparently Verizon phone service refuses to answer questions unless you can supply them with a billing password.  The phone is physically fine so I'd really like to be able to trade to a working model.  I'm not really sure how the plan works so I would really appreciate some information on this!

Unless mom or dad is eligible for an upgrade you can use theirs. Or you can explore Verizon Edge - Verizon Wireless
