Closing or Upgrading CC's?

Does anybody have more information about upgrading CC. I have 1 BoA and One from CO card that I am interested to close but I was thinking about upgrading to any other card with rewards example maybe is better (bcs the long life history of CC)

My question is if they (cc companies) accept upgrading does you have the same account numbers and is it like same prior cc continuing life. ( I mean how is shown later in credit report)

Thanks in advance,

I've always had the experience in upgrading that it is a new card and account number but, on CR it shows like that is the account you have had all the time. The new one I mean, all history goes with the new account. Good Luck Vicki

Keti, my experience with upgrading a BofA card was the same as greyhound's - new account number and new card in the mail, but with the original opening date of the original card.
