How to upgrade child-developer's phone to 8.1?

    Question

  • Hello. Hoping the Windows Phone community can help with a somewhat unusual situation.

    THE ISSUE

    My daughter would like to upgrade her Nokia 521 to Windows Phone 8.1. The trouble is she cannot register for a Windows Phone App Studio developer account (you must be 18-years-old to register for Windows Phone App studio developer).  That means she cannot run the Preview for Developers app to download WP 8.1. She's dying to see Cortana in action! She's quite the WP enthusiast!

    THE QUESTION

    When running Preview for Developers app -- and prompted for username and password -- could I enter mine? I'm a registered Windows Phone developer. Would this reassign her phone to my Microsoft ID? Would this cause any issues going forward?

    THE EQUIPMENT

    Nokia 521 on Brightspot (by Target). Phone has no SIM -- it is used Wifi-only. Currently running Black update.

    Any guidance would be appreciated!

    Thanks!
