    Just sold my iPhone 4 in anticipation of getting the new iPhone 5 in a few weeks.

    I'm phoneless now and need a replacement for about 3 weeks. Currently with AT&T.

    Friend of mine has a iPhone 3GS which takes a full size SIM card but I only have a MicroSIM from my iPhone 4. How can I get a full size SIM from AT&T? Is it simple as walking in an AT&T store and buy or ask for a full size with my phone number and info transferred?

    I have already fulfilled my contract and sold the iPhone 4 unlocked. Will asking for a full size SIM card void any part of my contract with AT&T (using unlimited data or something)?

    Also is there any prepaid phones that I can easily use my microSIM card?

    Any input will help and hope everybody has a great week...

    Last year with the 4 and this year with the 4s I sold them early and went back to my old 3G while waiting for the new phone to come out. Just brought the 3G into the at&T store and told them I got rrid of the phone and needed a full size sim for the iphone 3G. It only took about 5 minutes and they got me a new sim and I was out of there.

    #3 I guess asking for a full size should affect my unlimited data or any eligibility for the iPhone 5 right?

    It should not affect your unlimited data. I did it multiple times. Changed from micro to regular and back to micro. Even had them switch it to a Blackberry plan and back to iPhone again. :D
