(KSL News) The Apple i-Phone isn't even on store shelves yet, but it's already kicking off the next generation of cell phones. The i-Phone uses touch-screen technology that is already in the works to be used by other phone makers.

Touch-screen technology shipments are projected to jump from 200,000 last year to more than 21 million by the year 2012. Market researchers say the majority of the technology shipments will go to mobile phones.

If you're getting excited about the new i-Phone, be sure to check out your current carrier contract before jumping to Apple's hyped up gizmo. That's because the i-Phone only works with the AT&T wireless network. Plus, it can be difficult to get out of a wireless phone contract with fees from $150 to $250.

There are some online tools to help get out of a contract. One company is Cell Trade USA, which helps find someone to take over your cell phone contract.
