I just got my iPhone today, yay. :D! but I have a question. I'm going to start the activation but I haven't cancelled my old cell yet. I also want to keep the phone number I have now. Will I be allowed to transfer my old cell phone number to my iPhone without cancelling it first? Thanks in advance for your help!

don't quote me, I just went with a new number for my iPhone.

I believe that your old cell company has to release your number to ATT so that it can be used for your iPhone. So you are basically telling them that you intend to cancel.

During the activation process it does ask if you want to port a number from a different service.

It will let you keep your current # and it will deactivate your other cell
all during your activation. I did this with mine. I forgot what choices I made during the activation process though.
