[Q] Advice on best AT&T phone upgrade path
I currently have an AT&T family plan with 4 cell phones, using the Mobile Share Value Plan 10GB. I am "eligible for an upgrade" on one of the phones but am wondering if instead of taking up their upgrade offer, which seems to be basically a payment plan of $15-$25 month for 18 months for a new phone, if there would be a way to just cancel this one line and open a new account for just one line and take advantage of the current deals out there from AT&T at retailers where you can basically get an iphone 5 w/ a new 2 year contract for around $70.
The cancelled line would be my wife's and basically she doesn't care if she can't keep her cell # and has to get a new one.
Any suggestions or advice?
