I preordered the iPhone 5 from Apple.com for an AT&T phone. Initially I was debating jumping ship for Verizon, but then my mom told me I should rethink it because she's heard "so many complaints from her friends." I decided I'd keep my unlimited data plan and hope AT&T added LTE soon. Today I started doing a little more research and thinking through it all and am now considering jumping ship again. Biggest pro for me: LTE here for Verizon and AT&T only has HSPA+. Also, AT&T has gotten worse and worse. At the actual AT&T store you can't even get service to make a phone call (not in the store or within a mile radius of the store) and definitely don't attempt to get on the internet, because that's impossible! That's a joke if I've ever seen it! I'm not too worried about leaving the unlimited plan (I use less than 1GB every month since I have wifi at home and work). My company offers discounts at both companies. The Verizon plan will likely be a little more pricey because of the mobile share, but I like the option of having LTE, mobile hotspot, etc. Enough rambling...on to my question.... I ordered the iP5 at the early upgrade price of $549 (for 32GB) and clearly that extends the contract for another 2 yrs on top of the duration of my current contract. If I buy a Verizon iP5 now and start a contract with them, can I return the AT&T iP5 when I receive it (at $549) and go back to the duration left on my original contract? That way I can just pay the ETF at AT&T which will be less than the $250 early upgrade and after I do that, switch my number over to the new Verizon iPhone (which will have a new number when I order it...then switch to my current number after I return the other device)? Just want to make sure that is possible before I jump through hoops!
