    What happens to your old iPhone with its regular-sized sim after you activate the iPhone 4 for those who have received the new phone? Is the sim dead? In other words, if for example, the iPhone 4 won't work for whatever reason, can you use your old iPhone until it gets sorted?

    As far as I know, if you buy an adapter, then yes. Everything will work fine.

    What if you just want the old iPhone to just be a touch? Can that be done without
    jailbreaking? I did search and couldn't find a straight answer.

    thanks

    Yes. Here's a guide from Apple. It tells you how to do it. It's very simple.

    Once you activate the new iphone 4 your old sim becomes unactivated.
    You can buy a microsim adapter and use your microsim with any phone though.

    I figured as much. I guess I better order an adapter.

    I read the apple guide from the link above, here's a dumb question: Can you just leave the old sim in the phone, or do you have to take it out?

    (I'm giving it to my parents who may want to use it as a phone, or may just keep it in iPod touch mode, not sure yet.)
