Selling my iPhone 4 thats still under contract

I know that I will still have to pay the bill for the rest of the contract, but would I be able to sell the iPhone to someone else for them to use so long as I pay for the bill for the rest of the contract term and they can put the iphone on their plan?

Your contract is with your sim, do with the phone as you wish

For Verizon you need to call and have them deactivate the phone first so that the ESN will be clean for the new buyer to activate and use the phone.

I do think you will need to add a phone to your account.

Ok, the service is already deactivated. If you call the phone, then it just says that this phone number has been deactivated or out of service. Is this what that means?
