    What if I decide to use another phone instead of the iPhone when I want to travel or when I just want to not bring my nice iPhone when I go to a bar? How does this work? I hope AT&T will have some solution to this. Anyone here on the forums know?

    This is legit? Has anyone tried it? I might get it because I plan on calling AT&T after a couple days and remove the data package by saying I have a dumbphone now.

    Yes, the site is legit.
    I got 5 simcard adapters and came thru the mail in about a week.

    One was around 6 euros and 5 adapters were only 15.
    So kinda paying for 3 and getting five for the same price :D
    Plus I have a few people that are getting the new iphone and these will come in handy.

    Hmm, that makes some sense. Are you located in the US? Wondering for shipping times.

    Yes, they came in about a week in a regural white envelope thru USPS.
    I think return address was from the UK.

    cool. can i ask you a question? i have a few spare att cards not in use. is there a tool on att.com where i can transfer my account to that sim easily and free so if i mess up cutting the sim i dont need to kill myself?

    edit: actually would att just activate my plan on my ipad microsim no questions asked?

    If the micro-sim is already activated on another account...no.

    Good question.
    I think there is simcard readers and writers and such but not sure how expensive they are. I know if you go into an AT&T store they will copy your simcard over to a different one if its damaged etc..

    Well it doesn't have to be damaged. They have the machine that can transfer stuff from one sim to another.
