    I just sold my iPhone 3G on ebay. I am holding on to the SIM card obviously. Now, when my iPhone 3G S is delivered on Friday, how will i activate it? Will I pop in my old SIM card, or use a new one the 3G S comes with. If so, will there be an option to port my number over from my old SIM card to my new one?

    The 3GS will come with a SIM card. The number will be automatically ported over when you activate the phone through iTunes (assuming this is how the activation goes with delivered phones).

    There is nothing special about your SIM. Just activate the one that comes with your new phone.
