Can a contract number be changed?

I have a BlackBerry Bold Touch on contract, but I want an iPhone 5.
Solution -- my girlfriend is taking my BlackBerry Bold Touch and paying the rest of the contract, and I'm buying a SIM free iPhone 5.
But... can I port my number out of the contract and onto my Three nano-SIM? And/or can she port her number into the existing contract?

When you port your number from the original contract to the new one, you'd end the original contract and have to buy it out. Also, I think networks will only change your number if you're being harassed, not just because you want them to for a matter of convenience.

So, you could port your number to your new contract, but it would end the old one and your girlfriend can't port her number to the existing contract as the network won't let you:

a) Have a contract with no associated number (which you'd need to do to port your number out and then hers in).
b) Change your number for no good reason.
