    With normal SIM cards, it was seamless to upgrade an eligible line on a family plan to get the subsidized iPhone price, then once the unit arrived, just swapping SIM's so the line that originally wasn't eligible for upgrade ends up with the iPhone.

    With the microSIM, will it be doable? What I mean is, do you think that if I'm not eligible for upgrade, but another line on my plan is, I could use theirs, when the microSIM iPhone shows up, go to the store, switch back to a normal SIM for the upgraded line, and get a microSIM for the ineligible line to be used in the new iPhone.

    Probably can't definitively know now, but be interested in what you guys thought.

    Yes, AT&T should be able to provide you with microsims or regural sims whenever you want to switch to a compatible device.
    Or you could always cut your regural sim to the microsim dimensions.
