    This may be a bit premature, but has anybody tried (or heard of anybody who has tried) to cut up their old iphone mini sim and put it in iphone 4?

    I think you mean cutting the full size SIM to the micro size SIM. Correct? Thought about doing this. There was another thread where the person couldn't get his phone activated, so he did end up cutting the SIM and it sort of worked.

    I saw this but it got a bit confusing. If i had an already activated SIM (albeit cut up), why wouldn't it work to activate the iPhone? I did this with a gophone SIM for the 3G and 3GS and it worked fine! Does this mean i have to pay for a month of service before switching SIMs? I got my iPhone from ebay...

    Short of importing your contacts... why do this?

    Well just because i've been using a gophone SIM just because it's like $40 cheaper. I really just use my phone for calling (less than 60min/mo), texting (200messages/mon) and occasional data. I'd be blowing like $40 more a month for an iPhone plan.

    Plus it worked for the 3GS and 3G where i put in this SIM and it activated right off the bat, why not now? Do you think maybe AT&T's activation servers are not fully up yet or funky?
