So today my 4S finally died. I'm pretty far into my contract and ATT said they'd give me an "exception upgrade." Long story short after several chats with reps they keep giving me excuses on why they can't order me a new phoen which is fine. So I would now like to just pay my ETF and switch to Verizon. So when I go to Apple to buy a 16GB Space Grey it says it won't ship until October and it asks me all my porting info. My question is, when does the port take place? I don't want them to port my number to Verizon but not have a phone until I get it from Apple. I am using a dummy phone currently on my ATT plan.
