    My dad has a 16gb iphone on 02

    I have an 8gb iphone on 02 both 3g sets.

    Was wondering if i can just swap sim cards so i have the 16gb?

    What? No. SIM cards do not hold the memory capacity of the phone, just the unique identification information.

    Haha, I think he means he wants to put his SIM card in his Dads 16g iPhone and use that. I see no reson why this would not work, try it out :D

    Exactly.

    Although his hand set is insured, so id need to claim in his name and swap them back!

    We got them the wrong way around, although i guess i can not transfer contacts and txts?

    You can move the content around....

    basically, if you backup both iphones then do a restore of your back onto your dads phone and restore your dads backup onto the other....

    The backup file contains settings, sms, etc

    If you tried claiming on your dads insurance, they would be able to see that you've used a different sim in the phone and refuse to replace it

    O2 can tell which SIM is being used in a phone at any one time, so they'll have a record of which SIM has been used in each phone.
