Taking over an iPhone 5 upgrade for my kid, and handing down my iPhone 4 (both ATT). Can this be done?

After ordering an iPhone 5 upgrade that my kid is eligible for, can I take over that phone with my phone number and hand him down my iPhone 4? We both are on the ATT carrier.

    Yes you can. When you purchase the phone, the phone will be under his number. than you can simply go to AT&T and they will switch the numbers for you. Kind of like your trading phones.

  • In most cases, the carrier can do that. I'd go ahead and order the iPhone 5 using their upgrade and then once it arrives, take it to the carrier's store.
