Is there a way to obtain a cell phone for an area code where I do not live (yet)?

Basically, I am moving across the country in a couple months. I would love (LOVE!) to be able to obtain my new cell phone number in new area code before I move; this way I could give the new contact info to people like UPS who are helping me move all of my worldly goods.
Salesdroid at the Verizon store said he could not do this, but "maybe" their website could. I could not find any information on the website about this.
Has anyone done this before? Do I need a billing address located in the new area code? Shipping address? Or is this just not possible for no good reason?
