    I see that I can order the iPhone 4S from the Apple Online Store. They say they will ship it to my house for free.

    So how does the activation work - is it already activated when it arrives at my house? But what about my current iPhone 3G - I want to still be able to use my iPhone 3G before the 4S arrives. If they activate the 4S and transfer my current phone number to it, then won't my 3G stop working?

    You activate it when you get it in the mail during the setup process.

    Your 3G will stop working during that time only.

    Thanks, and since I'll be switching from AT&T to Verizon, do I need to do call AT&T or anything? My contract with AT&T is already up, and I'm just paying month to month. Would they keep billing me, or would they stop once the phone # is transferred?
