You may want to push back on that "have to add the data plan to the other line" if it means you'll wind up with an extra data plan you don't need/want.
At one point, my Dad had an HTC Tilt. He broke the screen after a couple of months. He went back to replace it (wound up with an iPhone 3GS), but it was to early in the contract to do anything but pay full price (no upgrade available).
The rep at the AT&T store had the same suggestion - use my Mom's available upgrade to get the discounted price. I'm 99% sure they did not
need to put a data plan on my Mom's line (she had an old junk flip phone), just extend her contract date 2yrs.
