Is there any economical way to switch cell phone providers without waiting months for my contract to expire?

I've had a cell phone with Verizon for about three years now. I'm not a huge fan of them, but renewed my contract a year and a half ago so that I wouldn't have to pay full price on a replacement for a phone I broke. So, I'm stuck in a contract with them until January.
I really, really want to switch from a regular cell phone to something like a Blackberry or Iphone, and have found plans through other carriers that are much better deals than what I'm getting from Verizon now. Sure, I could wait until the middle of January for my contract to expire and switch to a cooler phone with a carrier I like better, but you know how this stuff goes...I want a new phone now.
I seriously doubt there is any way I can get out of my contract with Verizon early, but am wondering how others have switched providers mid contract in the most economical way possible. Is there any way I'm overlooking that I can do this without breaking the bank?
