    you should be fine.
    if anything you might have to connect the phone to itunes but i doubt that will be the case.

    You do not have to call AT&T. Just put her sim card in your 3GS and your set.

    Just switch Sims and you will be good to go. You'll have to restore the phone with your wife's backup file, but there is no need to call ATT

    The backing up is important. Just do it in the right steps and you should be fine. I would:

    1. Back up your wife's phone, then disconnect it from the computer.
    2. Take out her SIM card and put it in your phone.
    3. Plug in it and mount it to iTunes. Restore from backup. Select her phone's backup.

    That's all you should need to do.
