    doing a search on MR I just see Old iphone to new iphone sim card answers....

    can i put my old sim card with my contacts into my iphone and transfer the contacts via settings >> "imports SIM contacts" ?

    with the old sim card will I be able to get to the home screen to get into the settings? i don't want to screw something up on the iphone....

    thanks
