    Default Pre-Order and Switch Carries Online?

    I have a quick yet complicated question. I currently have AT&T and want to switch to Verizon. Can I do this all tomorrow when I pre-order the iPhone 7 Plus on the Apple website or can this not be done? Would the better option be to do this from Verizon's website instead of Apple? Any advice would be great; especially if you have done this in the past.

    in the same situation, kind of.... I was going to switch when I learned that AT&T wont renew my granfathered unlimited plan for another two years, but I called a second time and they told me I could do it ONLY thru the phone starting tomorrow, but I dont think it can be done with Apple, i'd think you need to go to Verizon, you can call them tomorrow morning and should be able to do it

    after talking with apple chat; it sounds like you cannot port your exisiting number to a new provider during the pre-order

    One needs to deal with carriers to establish service...after that, you can deal with Apple on hardware.

    How do you plan on buying it? If you plan on buying it outright you can just do exactly that and switch carriers after.
