    Hey guys, I gifted my brother an iPhone 5 have a tracking number with it and he can't wait for it (neither can I)! Thing is, he's moving from an iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5, so how would I activate the iPhone 5 since there are two different SIM cards?

    I read earlier on here somewhere you simply turn the device on and the older iPhone/device gets deactivated. Is this true?

    Thanks everyone! I'm glad to be part of such a wonderful community!

    There will be instructions on how to do so. You'd have to go to whichever carrier's site you got it for, fill in a few things then connect to iTunes.
