    Hey everyone. First time poster. I bought an iPhone 6 on launch day and am having regret and want an iPhone 6 Plus instead but i'm past my 14 day return window. AT&T is annoying as expected but I ordered an iPhone 6 Plus from them directly and had to choose that it come with a new number. I am going to sell my iPhone 6 to my nephew and keep the iPhone 6 Plus for me. My question is, can I just put the SIM card from iPhone 6 into the iPhone 6 Plus and call it a day? Will it work and be activated or do I need to something else? Also do I first need to activate it with the SIM that comes with it (the one with the new number) or just swap out the SIM before I ever activate it? Thanks for your help. I look forward to hearing from you.

    As long as your both on the same carrier it will be fine. It should be as simple as switching the SIMs

    That's the beauty of gsm tech.

    Do I need to activate it first with the SIM Card that comes with the new iPhone 6 Plus before I swap my iPhone 6 SIM into it!

    Not necessarily. Any sim will do as long as it is for the same network.
