Question. I have a Verizon iPhone 4 still under contract. My step dad is going to buy an new 4S on Verizon under a new contract. I want to buy that phone from him for some money plus my iPhone 4. I get the new phone without extending my contract, and he gets an iPhone for a lot cheaper than he would have otherwise. The question is, can we do this? Unlike AT&T, there is no sim card. Will they swap the phones at the Verizon store for us? Or how do we do it? We will not be on the same family plan. Will that make a difference? Does a phone have to be deactivated before being activated on another line?
