    What phone do you have now?
    Just do a backup and restore your new phone from the backup once you've activated it.

    I upgraded my 2g to 3gs a few days ago.
    went to AT&T Store and activated the new phone with new sim.
    when I get home, I backed up old iphone then sync new iphone.
    that's it. every data was there.
    enjoy new one:D

    Won't the Apple store do this for you, assuming you brought your laptop to the store?
