    Hi,

    I currently use AT&T. I have 2 kids with iPhone 5s's. I want to get them the iPhone 7 for Christmas. My understanding is that the easiest way to achieve this while having it be a surprise is to buy unlocked iPhones from Apple and then simple take the SIM card out of the current iPhone 5s and put into the 7.

    Is that correct?

    Thanks!

    Yes, but you will have to pay the phones in full, costing you minimum $1300 (this is cheapest iPhone 7 quantity of 2)

    You could also go to the phone store Christmas Eve night when they're asleep, don't know if you're about that 2AM life though

    ...and you'll need to backup their current phones and restore to the new phones.
