iPhone Gurus

Here's the situation. I upgraded my phone a while ago to the 3gs. My wife still has the original iPhone, so I'm upgrading hers to the iPhone 4, which will be delivered next Tuesday. My wife will be taking my 3gs and I'll take the iPhone 4.

Question is, what do I need to do to achieve this. Do I just activate the iPhone 4 under my number and put her old SIM card in my 3gs? Cause my old SIM cars won't work in the 4, right? Thanks for the help.

Call AT&T and transfer the accounts to the respective SIMs.

Even if I just cut the SIM card, it doesn't matter that I upgraded her phone for the new phone. All I have to do then is just switch the sim cards.

the only one you have to call for is the iP4. you could just cut the old sim but its really not worth the trouble.

the 3g and 3gs just swap the sims.

so you upgraded your wife's number to get the iphone4 right? when you get the iphone4 and activate it online or by calling in, your wife's number will be in the iphone4. all you have to do is go to an ATT corporate store and ask them to give you new sim cards so that your number is on the little iphone4 sim and hers is back on the bigger sim. its free

Heres everything you need.

You can buy your microsim adapter back to regular sim here.

It's where I got mine. You don't have to be stuck with a microsim if you are using an older phone which does not use microsim.
