    I wanted to try the Att next thing out. I know it is not as good as the deal T-mo is offering but I wanted to understand how it works.

    Currently, I pay $96 a month for
    Mobile Share everything 1 GB data just for my 920.

    If use At&t Next to get 1020 how much extra would i be paying a month once i add the line?
    I thought about just trading in my 920 to put towards the phone and buying it at 299.99(Less 100 once i trade my 920 in) but i kind of want to try and sell the 920 to recoup some costs.

    According to their page, if you are just going to add the phone to an existing line, it you only pay the taxes upfront. Then the device is spread over 20 payments, for $299 that comes to 14.95 added to the existing bill. Though you might want to check with a rep to make sure. This is just the math from my interpretation.

    I don't think it's going to work out, at least not cheaply.

    Adding another smartphone to an existing contract is going to cost you, minimum $45 a month under AT&T's mobile share plan. Plus you'll have to sign a new 2-year contract for that new line.

    If you join Next then you'll have an additional monthly fee on top of that.

    You're looking at $96 + $45 + (Next fee).

    You could skip Next, sell your 920 and use the money to pay for the 1020 unsubsidized. Unfortunately, that means you're paying full retail price for the 1020 which is going to be over $600. AT&T won't let you get a subsidized phone without a new contract.

    The only other option is to break contract with your 920 and start a new contract for a 1020. The downside being that you'll lose your current number plus you'll have to pay the ETF on your 920. That's going to cost you a few hundred bucks.

    Is it possible to remove my 920 off the account of my main line and use that line as a tablet and then just have my secondary line as a 1020?

    Not if you've already signed a 2-year contract for the 920. The only way AT&T is going to let you out of that contract is if you pay the ETF or find a really (really) sympathetic manager.

    I believe how it works is that with At&t next, you pay the unsubsidized price over 24 months, but at 12 months you have an option to trade it in without paying the remaining balance and get a new phone.

    It appears it will cost around $28 dollars for 24 payments spread over 24 months and $33 over 20 months. At 12 months if your phone is still in good condition you can trade it in for another device....T-Mobile Jump is a much better deal.
