    Hoping somebody can help me out with this one...

    Currently I'm on ATT, and I'm eligible for an upgrade to the iP5. Would prefer to stick with ATT because I'm on a grandfathered unlimited data plan. However, in a year I'm moving to Israel and would like to use the iP5 there, which means that I'd need to buy an unlocked version now. What should I do? Should I buy the VZW model, which comes unlocked, to use abroad? Am I even able to use it in Israel? The network is not CDMA there. Or should I buy the ATT phone and break my contract after a year to get it unlocked? And how much does that cost? Are there any other options out there?

    Thanks in advance.

    Also, I am wondering if I switch to another carrier how I can keep my telephone number.
