Yeah - but I still don't want to pay those high prices.

I want prices that offers for my upgrade. :-D

Anyway so I am currently in the process of trying the following and will let you know if I succeed.

I currently have a phone in the name of my cousin.
I have two goals - One - get the line into my name. Two - Get an updated phone at as low a price as possible.

One - requires me to sign a new contract (with no phone)
Two - I will have to spend 99.99 (after rebate) to get the T610 (best phone with T-Mo as of now)

So instead what I am doing is

A. Getting a new line from Amazon (on T-Mo) in my cousin's wives name.
B. Once that is active will ask them if they can switch the numbers on the two lines in the family (hopefully that is possible - else I am willing to give up my number and have a new number). Then I cancel the current line that I have since it will have the new number on it - but still no contract.
C. After rebates are through just changing the line over to my name (might add on 2-3 months to my contract - assuming the rebates take that long)

The things people try to do for 99$ :-P
