    I dont understand the process..
    Rogers is telling me oncr the SIM goes out of the iPhone 4 that I have now, I can do whatever i want with the phone.

    But they said if I want the 4S, i have to pay the early upgrade fee ($360) & then buy the 4S subsidized ($159) + activation feee ($35)
    Which comes to $587

    Cant I just sell the iPhone 4 I have now for like $340 & buy a 4S & switch the SIM?

    If I do it this way, I can get a 4S for as cheap as $700 online, & will only have to pay $160-300 of my own money.

    Yup you can without problems. Just make sure the 4S you're buying is unlocked though.
