Upgrading from iPhone to Android via a pre-order. No service till new device arrives?
I have an old iPhone and would like to order a Note 3 as soon as possible. I want the contract extension discount, of course, so I have to add a compatible data plan at the time of preordering the Note 3. I'm advised this will cut off my iPhone plan immediately, leaving me without an activated phone for nearly a month.
Is this true? If so, how is this acceptable? Why can't I keep my plan in effect until the arrival of the new phone? Am I simply screwed out of preordering if I want to keep my current phone active until I physically possess the replacement?
