    Make a full backup in iTunes. Restore the backup to the new phone. Nothing to it.

    In addition to the steps above, you will need to remove the SIM from the old phone and put it in the new phone prior to setup.

    I don't know about Verizon, but I expect it's the same. With AT&T the phone comes with a SIM installed, and your old SIM will stop working when you activate the new phone. If for some reason you do need to remove the SIM from your old phone, you just use a paperclip. I believe my previous phones have come with a note from AT&T with instructions on how to activate it, but it's quite easy.

    1 - They will include instructions.
    2 - Only one phone will work at a time
    3 - This is an Iphone forum and pretty much everyone needs help. Try to be more descriptive in future posts.
