    Yes, it's common practice. Carrier will handle details for you.

    I would guess as long as you have the right data plan just put your sim in the phone your wife buys

    If you're on a GSM carrier (AT&T in the US, and pretty much all of them in Europe) then all you have to do is switch your sim card with hers. If you have Verizon, then you need to log into your account online/call them and switch the numbers like that.
