if you go to an at&t; store you can get it done in like 5 minutes. SO just go to the store in the morning and get a contract with a new phone

Mirza is correct, it takes no time at all.

andrew you dont even have to go to the store, my sister just got hers through iTunes. It lets you sign up for an account online - takes about 5-10 minutes.

Don’t cancel your Verizon if you haven’t done it already! I realize this is a few months after the question but they need your account to be active to transfer your number. It’s very quick at a Best Buy or AT&T store but be away that if your two year contract is not over with Verizon switching your number will count as a cancellation and you will be charged an early termination fee. Hope this helps.
