    Hello there!
    So, I've only been living in the US for like 2.5years now..and I am upgrading phones for the first time later today! Yay ~

    As a first timer, I have a question..
    Can they both be active at once? (I am gonna go ahead and say no, cause logically that's what it should be like. But hey, I don't know either way!)

    Or do I have to turn one off/put on airplane mode, and run the other one. Which would mean..when I want to activate my iPhone 5, I need to put my iPhone 4 on airplane mode THEN turn on my iPhone 5 for the first time and set it up.

    Thank you so much! =)

    Hi BluePhoenix!

    What will happen is that, if you are on verzion, you will call a number I think *89 on the new phone. After that, the iphone 4 will basically become a paperweight, that plays music, and apps, and can connect to wifi. Then the new Phone will be in service, its easy and takes only a few mins! Or you can open a second line for I think an extra $30 a month and use both phones (But who would do that? lol)

    As for ATT, and Sprint I can't comment since I dont use them

    Awesome! Thank you so much! =D

    I basically just turned my iPhone 4 on Air plane mode and turned the other one on, and boom it worked! =D

    Now using the iPhone 5 without any problems ~ Yay =D
