Nope not at all. There is nothing that they can do about you activating any verizon capable phone to any verizon account. This is just a case of giving a rep who probably knows less than you do, too much information.
Buy the phone. Walk into a store the next day and say " i had this phone laying around and want to switch it out with the one im using"
You would have to wait for the phone in any case as it comes "non" attached to any line. The only line specific thing would be the ETF on the line you upgraded. Other than that the phone don't care where it goes.
Not sure how it works for Verizon anymore, however, with Sprint, it was usually the case that they sent the phone un-activated so in order to do what you wanted, you'd just use your upgrade on account A - this would use your upgrade and extend your contract, get the phone in the mail and then just activate the phone on account B.
I think you will have to buy and activate the phone on the line available for upgrade BUT you can then switch it over to the other line right after that. That is how i had to do it once before
This is how I had to do it as well. When I received the phone I just called Verizon and let them activate it. That is the only time I had to do it that way. I have had several phones that I "rotate" so I don't get bored, so I usually do this stuff on their website. It was easier to let them do the upgrade this time.
You don't actually have to activate on line A, any longer. You do, however, need to go online and accept the contract and input the meid# in. Then you can activate the the phone on line B
If it is a 4G phone you will probably need to go into a store to have a new sim card installed. The 1st card will be assigned to line A's number and cannot be transfered.
