    Looking to get the 5 for both me and my wife, but we will be moving from AT&T to Verizon. We are both on the same account and will want to keep it that way.

    How does this work with pre-ordering? Do I need to pre-order in store? Or can I order through the apple site and just say it'll be on VZW, and then go into a store and transfer our phone numbers?

    Also have the issue that we'll be leaving the country on 9/26, and which is the Wed after release date (9/21, Friday). So if we didn't get them before that, we wouldn't be back for 10 more days. Ugh.

    Thanks!

    Call Verizon and AT&T to know what will happen and needs to be done for this to happen. Remember, breaking contracts involves ETFs and the likes.

    Fortunately neither of us are on contract.

    I'm just wondering "when" and how we'd do this. I feel like it's going to be really complicated.

    Same boat here. I have a AT&T 4 that is out of contract. I want to port my number to verizon with this 5. I'm hoping I can just preorder a 5 and deal with VZW on this once received?
