Swap iPhones on connected plans?

I have two plans on our account. One is good for an upgrade with discounts, but the second plan is the one I want a new phone on.  Can I buy a new iPhone 7 on the first plan, and then swap it with the iPhone 5 on the second plan?  I believe the two phones now use different SIM cards, so how can I make that happen so that I can take advantage of the discounts on the first account, and get the better phone onto the second account?  Make sense?

Yea of course! Buy the phone on the first plan, (when it arrives it will come with a sim card), activate that sim card on the second line instead of the first, put it in the new phone, and you'll be all set to go.
