I would like to get an iPhone and have some questions about the cheapest way to do so. Questions about Verizon within.

I am currently on my parents' old Verizon family plan. All of us have texting, but no data, on the free phones Verizon seems to give us every two years. I assume this means we're grandfathered into one of Verizon's old family plans, because the Share Everything plan doesn't seem to work quite the same. My parents last renewed our two year contract in August.
I can finally afford the monthly bill for an iPhone, and I would like to get one. What is the best way I can do that without knocking my parents out of their Verizon plan? I've been looking at the Verizon website to see whether I could just upgrade my phone without affecting theirs, but it doesn't seem like I can. Upgrading in the middle of their two year contract also seems exorbitantly expensive.
Would it be cheaper for me just to get my own phone plan with two year contract? I really want to keep my phone number.
Any help would be appreciated!
