    Just upgrade your fathers phone, and then switch numbers. Game over!

    Best Buy does do alternate upgrades. They had a system update that now allows this.

    Nice thanks!! I would need the account holder with me though to do it right? If I wanted to preorder the phone would I need the account holder to pre-order it and then pick it up..

    Yea they have upgrades, sometimes they are better then at the Retail Direct Store, but it all depends on the device.

    You would need the account holder to actually purchase the phone upgrade.

    You do not need them present to do the pre-order, since they don't actually look anything up about your account in the Verizon system. They just put your name on the list for that store, and charge you $50 for a BestBuy gift card, which you then use towards the purchase of the phone when you come back and buy it.

    You can have the account holder call and add you as an authorized user, where they you will be able to make changes to the account.
