Verizon two year contract iPhone 5 - Want the new S4
Just got the new iPhone 5 last year with a shiny new Verizon 2 year contract. Now I must have the new Galaxy S4.
What would be my best way to score the new S4?
Pre order from AT&T and have another 2 year contract?
Pay the early termination fee with Verizon?
Wait for Verizon to get the S4 and purchase at full price and then sell the iPhone 5 on eBay?
I'm dazed and confused and was wondering what would be my best plan of action?

What I would do, if you've got a backup phone, throw the iphone on ebay, being a 5 considering it's condition. You could easily get 400 off of it.
Then use a little extra cash to buy the s4 out right.
IMO the s4 isn't worth going into another contract.

Maybe I should just purchase the S4 from Verizon for full price, transfer my number to it and then sell the Iphone 5.
I think the iPhone 5 prices will be in the crapper by then.
Would the person I sold the phone to be able to activate it with Verizon?
You could either buy the s4 and then sell, or sell after activating a dumb phone in its place, then buy the s4 when it comes out. They should be able to activate the iPhone on their account as long as you pay your bill and don't report it lost or stolen.
