Okay... wow I'm just tired of looking and not finding the answer to my question.. maybe one of you smart people can help me. Me and a family member are on a family plan on ATT and he really wants to go to Verizon. We both are "in contract" but willing to pay the early termination fee. What is the process of pre-ordering but getting the subsidized price for a NEW Verizon account, but also making sure our numbers can transfer over? I apologize if this has been answered anywhere else but I just can't find it. This might just be too complicated and we will have to wait and just go to a Verizon store once it comes out. (hope the stock is better this time around) Do we sign up for an account tonight if we pre-order? But then can activate and transfer the numbers from ATT when we get the phones? It's my 4th iPhone and I still don't really know what protocol is going to exist this time cause I've never changed carries obviously. Does this make sense? Thanks in advance for any advice.
