    I've preordered the new 3GS iPhone and am patiently( :) ) waiting along with everyone else. I've long been an AT&T wireless customer and my 1st gen phone has never been hacked or jailbroken in any way. I have a couple of questions regarding the switchover:

    1) Will the new phone come with a new SIM card, or will I just swap out the card from old 1st gen iPhone?

    2) If some catastrophe were to befall my new iPhone, but the SIM card was undamaged, would I be able to pop the SIM card into my old phone and immediately have phone service?

    3) If the answer to question number 2 is a yes, then is there any reason I couldn't swap the SIM card between the phones at will, as often as I wish?

    Yes, and activation will move your service to the new SIM, and the old one will be deactivate, but can be reactivated for a new account.

    Yes, because your old iPhone was activated in iTunes, it should work. It would also work with any unlocked phone or phone for your carrier. I still use my V180 from time to time because it is safer than using my iPhone in some places.

    Nothing preventing it, as I said like I do with my V180.
