    You can sync as many iDevices as you want with iTunes. At&T will deactivate the old 3g sim card and you just proceed as usual. I would turn off the 3g chip though to help your battery. My wife and I have both of our iPhones synced with the same iTunes account. Much easier to share apps and music than seperately. So, you don't have to do anything. When you first set up the new one set it up as a new one just like anything else.

    Currently have a Touch with 1 itunes account. Going to get 2 new iphones. My question is can I sync all 3 to the same itunes account but put different apps on different devices or can I only sync the same info/apps to all devices

    Yes. I have the first iPhone that I use as an iTouch plus my 3GS phone and my spouses's 3G phone. We sync all 3 devices to one iTunes account. When you plug in one of your iPhones, you'll be able to specify which apps you want on it - each phone can have different apps (turn them on or off).

    A question I have always wondered about. Thanks all.

    I am thinking that when I get my iPhone 4 I might keep my 3G and use it as a business handset. I am in the process of setting up my own business and will soon need a separate business line (probably PAYG for now).
