hey guys, i got the iphone 5, i want to give my brother my iphone 4S, can i just take my old simcard that is in the 4S (which is inactive now because the simcard in my iphone 5 is the active one) and put my brother's simcard in the iPhone 4S from his iPhone 4? we both have ATAT, i mean is it going to work?

Yes, it will work.

You might need to get a new micro sim for his line to take advantage of the 4S's ability to run on AT&T HSPA+
