    With next iPhone coming out, I've decided to upgrade.
    My mom has the buggy iPhone 3G, so I'm giving her my IP4.
    How will I get the current 3G SIM to fit in the 4?
    Can I get one from AT&T or cut the one she has right now?

    Ask AA&T
    The old iPhone purchase page had info stating that you could just ask AA&T.
    Can't see it in the new layout.

    You can have AT&T give you a new microsim with her account info or try to cut it yourself.

    You could cut it your self or you could get a micro sim card cutter

    Anyone who sells the iPad or iPhone 4 will have a SIM cutter.

    That's not exactly true.

    OP, you use the tutorials qtaran111 suggested or you can easily purchase a micro sim-cutter on eBay.

    I've had a dozen of them cut down in 4 countries and never seen an official outlet without a SIM cutter. I would not hesitate to walk into an AT&T store and expect them to cut down my SIM card for free.

    It's entirely possible however that the iPhone 5 will no longer use a SIM card...
