I have a few questions about switching an existing number from Verizon. I have two Verizon phones I will be switching off when my iPhone arrives. I do not want to keep my primary number because it is impossible for anyone to remember but my secondary one (which had been my mothers emergency phone) was a good easy to remember one. BTW: I switched her to a GO Phone because it was cheaper and Verizon was such jerks when I asked about switching down to one phone ( I would have kept moms if they were decent about it). If you make the choice to switch a number from another carrier does it greatly increase your activation time? Can I switch a number that is still in a 'plan'? I am afraid to cancel the number early because I think I will immedately not own it to switch it. If it takes too long to activate, it will be much easier for me to just get a new number. Thanks for any help.
