    When i switched from T-mobile to AT&T i went to my local best buy, and signed up for a plan, and i just got a cheap phone, as i was planning on buying an iphone in a couple of days. I want to know if its alright to take the sim card out of my iphone and put it into the cheap sony ericsson that i got to begin with, and by doing this will it void anything like my data, or is it against the TOU to do this. I go to the beach often and would rather carry a 50 dolar phone with me that my iphone.

    I do this all the time and have even been using the data from my iPhone Sim card.

    You should be able to do this and I don't think it will void any warranty or anything. I'd check with AT&T to make sure.

    AT&T will tell you not to do it

    but chances are, even if they do notice you have put the sim in another phone, they wont care

    in the UK, we have to sign a piece of paper when we buy the iPhone and one of the conditions is we dont swap the sims...but most people do and i havent heard of anyone getting charged etc
