    I preordered a tmobile iphone 6 on apple store to replace my iphone 4. i am hoping the tmobile iphone 6 purchased from apple is unlocked (I have read conflicting info on this). i am currently using the iphone 4 on AT&T . If the tmobile phone is unlocked (I hope it is) and I want to use it in place of my iphone 4 on AT&T, how would I go about setting up the iphone 6 with my iphone 4 phone number? I have read about switching sims to activate, but the iphone 4 has a different sim than the iphone 6.... Would I purchase a new sim from AT&T to put in the iphone 6? If so, how would the phone number from the iphone 4 get transferred over to the iphone 6?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You just go to att and ask them to give you a nanosim with your phone number to replace your current microsim.
    Put it in the new phone and you're done.
