With the unlocked iPhone 4 officially finally being released on the Verizon network, a network that is superior to that of the AT&T network, which has received a lot of negative attention regarding dropped calls in recent years, many are wondering how they can get out of their contract with AT&T and head over to the greener pastures provided by Verizon.
The contract with AT&T can be a bit complicated due to some of the contract charges that have been implemented over the course of the last few years. It can be sort of hard to get an idea of how much it would cost to leave the network. However, the information is out there and if you are serious about jumping ship.
Keep in mind that you should not call up your current carrier and cancel if you decide to make the switch. This will often result in you losing your phone number. Instead, try calling up your new network and having them assist you throughout the process. This will help you to keep your current number.

This was put together to help you to find out the exact amount that you will pay when you break your contract with AT&T. Keep in mind that if you bought an iPhone 4 unlocked after June 1st, you will have to pay some additional fees that were implemented at that time. Although making the move is expensive, most believe that moving to a more reliable network will be worth it in the long run. The Verizon iPhone 4 is coming on February 10th to Verizon, leaving users with just a few weeks to make the switch to acquire the highly popular device.
