...as long as you keep paying your bill and don't try to port your current number before your current contract is up in Aug.
Also, where are you going to find a 'nice' phone on the cheap(?) Just curious what you're looking at for pre-paid (and with which carrier??)
im currently on a family plan but would like to get my own pre paid plan with verizon. our contract ends in august so i want to know if i can buy a nice phone cheap, then switch and avoid the termination fee. would this work?
