So I'm planning on buying the LTE but am trying to figure out my options. I can either buy the phone outright ($599 price tag?) and sell my Photon (possibly get $250) or can sign my brother to my family plan and give him my Photon and I pick up the LTE on the new line. So that being said if I do pick up a new line is there any way to switch numbers so I keep my old number and my brother gets a new number on my Photon? He is in need of a cell phone but doesn't have the credit so obviously me picking him up on my line is a win/win...but for business reasons I'm not really wanting to get a new number, plus I've had my number for 4+ years. So for someone who has done this, what do you suggest? Should I just bite the bullet and buy the LTE outright? For the record I was able to do the typical $200 upgrade for the Photon because I was a "gold" member before they upped the price and was able to get a courtesy upgrade. Just wondering if there are other options out there? Or what I should expect?
