I think you would have to sing up in the ABC area.
And then use it in your xyz area.

That's what I do.
Signed up in Cali, but use it primarily in DC.

I know Amazon sells celluar phones, not sure how they handle area codes, since they sell to anyone.

I would think so. To be sure, just go to the website of the company you're thinking about joining, look for the customer service number, and ask them. With Cingular, they told me I could change my number once free of charge, and when I changed it, they asked for what area code I wanted.
