Can I keep the benefits of my mom's plan and start my own account to take advantage of the promotion?

I'm currently on my mom's plan and am very happy with the benefits. I want to get a new Galaxy S7 and  want to become the payer of my own bill (my own account) and take advantage of the current tab promotion. I don't want to change my number or lose my benefits. Is it possible to do this? If not, is it still possible to get the tab promotion and upgrade while still on my mom's account?

Hi Jen,
What benefits you are having with your Mom's account? If you want to have your own account with the same number, you could do an "ownership transfer" from your mom to you. From there, you could add a Tab with the S7 on your name.

However, I don't know if you can keep your "benefits" when you change the owner of the number.

I just have a good amount of data, unlimited texts, and enough minutes for my needs. I want to keep the same number and those perks for the same price.

Then it would be fine, a transfer of ownership will keep your number and with your name.
