Cant swap broken phone with spare phone anymore online?

I have a iPhone 6 that is dead now, won't charge or anything, I have an iPhone SE that's in the box from years ago and wanted to simply use that as the new device to replace the broken. I no longer see this option online, usually you were able to "upgrade" and bring your own device but now all I can do is add it as a new line which I don't want to do, it is just going to replace the broken one

bchiaino, if not already you can swap the SIM card from your iPhone 6 to the iPhone SE to force through the activation. Let us know if this works going forward.
