Verizon customer interested in iPhone

Help me out on this: I've been with Verizon for ten years. My current contract runs out in December. If I want the iPhone, do I need to somehow migrate from Verizon to Cingular just to get it?

buy the phone at full retail price (and then do what?)

or

join at&t and have 2 mobile phone numbers

or

switch to at&t completely and forget about vzw

actually the phone is not going to be available for retail until 2009, its a mandatory 2 year agreement with cingular (or ATT) until then, with all the exclusive things ATT is giving apple, such as probably a special data plan, visual voicemail etc, they want to lock you in for 2 years

my suggestion is just keep verizon until the iphone actually comes out, when you decide you want it just go to cingular (without cancelling verizon yet), and tell them you want to transfer your phone number over and cancel verizon, they will do everything for you without you having to cancel verizon yourself...

you've misunderstood. it will be available in June 2007, and will be exclusive to Cingular/ATT until end of 2009, so 2010 is the soonest another carrier will see it.

oh ok, well no actually 2 year agreement will end june of 2009, so 2009 is when in reality should be visible to other carrier?

the statement released says "through" 2009, so i assume it's though the entire year.
