If you're staying within the same company, you shouldn't have to pay a fee. Just take the SIM card out of the phone and insert it correctly into the new phone.

Computers are the wave of the future.

Cellular providers shouldn't charge a fee to change cell phones. All you are doing is deactivating your older phone and activating the newer one so it is linked to your account.

Call the cellular provider and reach their customer service. (Usually technical support can do this, but billing and accounts can do it too.) To do this, just dial 611 from either handset to reach the cellular network's customer service. 

Ask them to update the register phone on the account to another one you acquired. You will be asked to remove the battery and read them back the IMEI (serial number), then turn off the phone and on again and you should be on their network.

Verizon users would ideally press *228 to program the phone once it's authorized on their account.

Since I upgraded to 9.7 my email is not being pushed to my cell phone

AOL mail is not pushed anywhere outside AOL. Many mail systems (including smart phones) allow you to access AOL mail using IMAP protocols, but that's a pull and not a push. And it has nothing to do with whether you use AOL 9.7 or some other version.
