    My new iPhone 4S is coming tomorrow (very excited!). I currently own an iPhone 4. What process do I go through to de-activate my iPhone 4, swap SIM cards between the two phones, and activate the new one? Is it that simple, or do additional steps have to be taken to make everything work?

    Thanks!

    All you have to do is activate your iPhone 4s, your old sim card in your iPhone 4 will de-activate by itself.

    Then you just simply swap the sim cards and then going through the newly implemented iOS5 setup process in the beginning.

    So if I use my old 4 SIM card with my new 4S.....I can bypass all the current Activation issues with AT&T?

    I'm going to have to switch my sim cards too, because right now it's telling me that my account is over due lol.

    So for those of you that have upgraded to the 4s off-contract, does swapping the sim from your iPhone 4 activate your 4s w/same number and everything? Do I need to contact AT&T at all?
