Situation: I want to add a line for my mother to my existing services (which requires a 2 year contract). I would like my mom to use my current phone, and I will purchase a new phone for myself to switch to. My new phone (which requires a 2 year contract, not sure if it overlaps with the "new line" contract), ordered via the service provider's website, will arrive after 10 days, but I want to add the line immediately before my new cell phone arrives. When my new phone arrives, it will replace my current phone, and my current phone will be given to my mother, at which time she will register it to be used with the new line.
My provider is Cingular/AT&T. I've talked to several representatives on the phone, but they seemed not to understand the exact issue. I was not able to get ahold of a representative on a personal visit.
Do you know whether what I'm trying to do is possible? Any advice?
