    What if I want to buy an iphone 4, sell it, and get a new phone right away?
    is this possible?(assuming that i stay with AT&T) if it is possible, can I abandon my new phone and get the iphone again?


    And this may be dumb question, but I am wondering if I can get AT&T network with a Verizon phone?

    Thanks

    Not unless you want to pay the full unsubsidized price

    No, and if you break the contract you will need to pay an Early Termination Fee of 325 and cannot get a subsidized phone for 6 months from them. You can add a line and get a new phone, but if you cancel the other line you're on the hook for the ETF

    No, two different incompatible phone technologies. AT&T uses GSM, Verizon uses CDMA. A verizon phone cannot work on the AT&T network and vice versa. That's why we see a tons of threads hoping for a verizon iphone, that is a CDMA version of the iPhone that will run on the verizon network.
