iPhone 6 upgrade question - swapping phones?

Have an iPhone 5 with my line being eligible for upgrade, but want to trade in my husband's 4S (not eligible for upgrade until 11/14). Is this possible? Do we need to swap phones before I do this?

Order the iph6 using your upgrade. When it arrives activate it.

Then activate your iph5 on your husbands number. Then you can trade in his 4S phone.

Thanks for the reply. But if I do that I don't think I'll get the promotional $200 trade-in value of the 4S.  The "appraised value" on the 4S is only $85.

Hmmm? Interesting dilema - I see your concern.

Here is the statement/question regarding the trade-in directly from the Vzn website. The terms say you can trade in ANY iphone from any carrier - so it doesn't have to be the phone that is being upgraded.

Are you purchasing a new Apple iPhone 6 or Apple iPhone 6 Plus with Verizon Wireless and submitting a trade-in request for an iPhone (4, 4S, 5, 5C, 5S) that is in good working condition?

AAll you have to do is switch the SIM card from your phone to his and it will switch the number that's all you have to do. you can trade in any iphone from any carrier. i am sending in an att iphone 4 and I never been an att customer and I will still get the 200.00 don't worry about the appraise value u will get the 200
