When you transfer upgrade eligibility to another line on your account:
- The line transferring the upgrade must accept any installment terms currently on the line getting the upgrade.
- You must upgrade the receiving line’s device during the transfer process.
For example, a mother is eligible for an upgrade, but her son needs a new phone. Her son has 6 months left on his installment plan.
- The mother transfers her eligibility to her son’s line. She then assumes the remaining 6 months of the installment plan on her line.
- The son upgrades to a new smartphone with a new AT&T Installment Plan or AT&T Installment Plan with Next Up℠.
