Question Buying a Sprint phone from Amazon, Costco or BestBuy...

Hey guys and gals,

My wife and I are considering a move to the EVERYTHING DATA plan and finally moving to better phones.

The device that my wife was interested in (via Sprint.com) -- the Motorola Photon -- is now $149.99 (with an additional $50 rebate). However, nearly every other website or store has this device for $49.99 with a 2 year upgrade.

However...

The line up for a rebate is NOT her line. She wants to use MY upgrade to purchase a phone and then activate it on her line. Her line will be out-of-contract in a couple of months, but she is extremely tired of her Treo Pro.

Question: If we purchase a phone using my line's upgrade, will we be able to:

A.) Move this device to her line without a problem or penalty?
B.) Have the $36 activation fee waived?

Are there any other possible disadvantages of buying a phone through a third party vendor like Amazon, BestBuy or Costco?

Thanks!
