I didn't do it with an iPhone, but when I switched from AT&T to Verizon you could port your number at the same time you order or pre-order your new device. As soon as you activate your new phone on Verizon, it kills your AT&T account.

Yeah I ported my number. It's nice!

I can't imagine what troubles I would have to go through if I get a new number. It's not like other countries where the telecom reroutes phone calls/texts to the new number while informing the caller/texter that the number has changed.

how does the not being able to use voice and data work? can you get a text while on a phone call?
