    I'm currently using a 3GS. When Oct 14th comes around, do I just need to plug my 4S into my mac and sync in iTunes? Or will I need to get a microsim from AT&T and have them activate the phone on top of that?

    Your new iPhone 4S will ship with a new unactivated Micro-SIM pre-installed and ready to activate.

    Apple has annouced this year that you don't need a PC or Mac to activate so it should be even easier. Did your order from Apple or AT&T?

    AT&T normally sends a sheet of instructions to activate. This year they are also providing the instructions in your order confirmation. You can do it via the web, phone or stopping by an AT&T Corporate Retail location. :D
