Pre-Ordering with New Service
So I'm finally jumping ship. I'm a longtime Sprint / Blackberry user, but I knew that this summer I'd be moving on. I considered the Evo, but when I discovered (actually was told by someone on these forums) that I could pull off a comparable rate for my wife and I, I knew that the iPhone 4 was in my future.
My question is this:
Can I preorder the iPhone4 with a new service contract w/ AT&T but the contract not kick in until the phone is shipped? I don't want to lose service with Sprint until I actually have my new phone in hand.
And with that in mind, would it be a better option to pre-order through apple or at the AT&T store?
I appreciate your patience if this has been answered elsewhere, and I'm looking forward to eating at the cool kids' table when I have the new iPhone4

I just did the same yesterday, been with Sprint for 12 years, but moved office into Roam area that just doesn't connect with Pre.
The straw that broke my back was 3 friends in office during storm (I had no service), they chatted and emailed away.
So loyalty is one thing, service requirements are another and my change means an opportunity.
I was told that phone on Sprint will work until IPhone plugged in for activation, whenever that might be, but I ordered thru Corporate Store, as a newby, so I can find the same person again if needed.
Good luck, and no, I am not going on PreCentral and writing a letter of goodby
