Changing phones is easy, you can actually do it right on VZW's website yourself by changing the ESN #'s on your account and then doing a *228 option 1 and 2. Just remember though, once you activate a Blackberry there is a MANDATORY $30 montly data charge on top of your regular calling plan for unlimited streaming email, internet useage from the device, and instant messages from any of the 5 installed messenger services; text msging is still extra depending on your plan. As stated above, a VZW store will be able to transfer your contacts, wether or not they'll charge you depends on the store I guess since you're not activating a new line of service. Hope this helps.
