    So I might keep the 4s.

    Here's what I have:

    My old 4 with new sim (taken from 4s) in it. Activated and working.

    The old sim (from my 4). Not in any phone.

    The new phone.

    What do I need to do to get the new one to work?

    Do I need to go to or call AT&T?

    Shouldn't need to involve AT&T.

    Backup iphone4 to itunes
    Move SIM from iphone4 to iphone4S
    Sync iphone4S to itunes

    Unless AT&T is doing something wonky now, it should work fine.

    One additional note -- when you restore a non-iphone4S backup to an iphone4S, Siri seems to come up as "Off" by default, just go to Settings and turn it on. Also go to Location Services and turn that on for Siri as well.

    I read that also, but it wasn't the case with me. When I restored my 4S with a backup from my 4, Siri was indeed on by default. So I guess it's a YMMV thing.

    Interesting. Clearly your experience and mine were different, so definitely a YMMV.

    I'm curious; was your 4 on iOS5 or 4.x? Mine was on iOS5, so perhaps that made a difference?

    I was responding to Darth.Titan, as indicated by the quoted comment. Didn't mean any confusion, that post was not directed at you.
