    I have a few questions about switching carriers on release date.

    I am with ATT now but want to switch to Verizon when the iPhone 5 is released later this month.

    For some dumb reason I love getting the new iPhones on the release date.

    I will be purchasing 2 iPhone 5s on release day, one for me and one for my wife.

    Is is possible to switch carriers when ordering the iPhone 5 on release day and keep our same phone numbers?

    For example the iPhone 5 will be announced Sept 12 probably on sale within the following day or so and released around the 21 of September.

    Would you suggest purchasing the phone online through Verizon or Apple.

    When do you switch over the phone numbers?

    It's easy to switch carriers and keep your number, but it's easiest to do it in person such as at a Best Buy or Verizon store.

    Are you still under contract or are you past that 2 year mark? If past it, then you simply give them the phones you want to port over to the new carrier and that's it.

    My wife is past the 2 yrs mark but I purchased the iPhone 4s on the release dat so Ill have to pay ATT Early Termination Fee.
