I ordered two iPhones for my wife and I on Apples site. We both did the iPhone Upgrade Program and when asked what carrier we had I picked AT&T. The phones are coming today and I would like to switch to Verizon however. I don't believe the phones will be locked to AT&T? Maybe the sim card is?

Anyways im wondering what steps I should take. Will I be able to give Verizon the IMEI number and get a new sim card and have it just work? Should I activate with AT&T and make the switch next week? We would like to keep both of our numbers so im sure that adds to the time and complexity also.

Thanks for any help or advice.
