I have three months left on my Nextel contract, so it is cheaper to finish it out rather than pay the ETF. Is it possible to activate an iPhone with a temp number and switch over to my real number at the end of the contract?

Thanks for the help!

I don't know about that number. But I was with verizon and found it cheaper to continue the last three months of that contract than to pay the ETF. However, I didn't care about my old number. Someone who wants the same number may choose to wait for the iPhone or just pay the ETF.

You can activate your iPhone now with a new number, then when your nextel contract runs out go to an AT&T store and have the number ported over. This will automatically cancel your Nextel service. Takes likes 5 minutes.
