I did and it worked fine and no stress of having to talk to anyone at the vzw store.

my brother and i both have unlimited data, on a plan with our mom who has a dumb phone. we have 1 upgrade ready and then another coming in august. he got the S3 when it came out and im going to grab the S4. whenever we have an upgrade, we are going to transfer the upgrade to her line, upgrade her line. deactivate it, turn her old dumb phone back on, get rid of the tiered data pack and then activate the S4 on my line.

some people mentioned here doing the upgrade on your line but when the phone comes activating the phone on the dumb phone line but i would suggest just transferring the upgrade to the dumb phone. dont get your main line involved at all.

But can you transfer the upgrade if that line already has one available? My kids lines were already upgradeable. Ordered the phones, activated then, then swapped Sims, went online and put their dinc2's back on.

Guess if I really like anything later this year, I might try to transfer the upgrades or use them to get the kids new phones.
