    I ordered my iPhone 5 with a dumb phone line and planned on using my 4s sim, but my 4s uses micro, when can i go to att and pick one up?

    In the past my iPhones came with a sim already installed so I believe it will be the same.

    You would have to ask AT&T to swap accounts between your Micro and Nano SIM cards.

    but does anyone know if they will have the new nano sim in stock on/before launch day? I'm not sure if other phones use this sim, or whether it is just apple exclusive for now.

    Yes this is what i need to know i called on the 12th (when they announced nanosim) he said most likely same day. but just come in and we will switch sims and do all of it and cancel data plan on new phone without a charge.

    Don't activate it until you call AT&T and have them change it to your main line. You shouldn't need the sim then.

    Last year I used someone else's upgrade and they had a regular SIM. When I went to the AT&T store they just gave me the new SIM cards for free. The lady even gave me a few extras in case it didn't work right :)

    Sim cards are usually free for upgrade swaps and things like that, don't sweat it.

    I called at&t and asked about something similar because I used my brother's upgrade to get the 5. They said either call and have them change the iccid to my line or go to a corporate at&t store and get a sim and if they try to charge me, call and they'd credit me. Pretty nice, so it shouldn't be a huge worry for you. :)
