So I finally got my iPhone but the thing is that my Verizon contract doesn't end until July 27th. I was wondering if anyone had asked or done this, but can I activate iPhone as a gophone until then and then, on the 27th, sign up for normal service (we would do the family plan with the iPhone add-on) and then re-activate my iPhone under that new service, thus getting my old number back. Thanks.

I haven't done this yet, but I plan to in the near future. I don't see why it wouldn't be possible to port your current iPhone number over to the new contract plan.
Here's what I plan to do: Go to ATT and sign up for whatever their promo family plan is (and get a free phone or two). Then maybe switch SIM cards between one of the new phones and the iPhone. And then hook up to iTunes and activate the switched SIM card in the iPhone and also port the old iPhone number.
