The primary phone (iPhone 3G) on my account was ineligible for an upgrade, but one of the other (non-iPhone) handset was eligible. When my new iPhone 3G S⃣ arrived, instead of waiting for up to 48 hours for activation, I made use of the included SIM Card removal tool (save the paper clips!) and simply swapped out the card in my 3G for the one in the new 3G S⃣ . From there, I simply restored from backup, and viola!, I'm up and running! Has anyone else tried this and or had any negative experiences resulting from it? My apologies if this is a double post, but I couldn't find any specifically for this topic.
