I hope this is the correct forum, if not, please LMK... Here's my situation: I was wanting to buy the white iP4, but now that the official word is it will be released sometime later this year, I think I would rather wait until June/July '11 when the next one is released. I am a current AT&T customer with an original iPhone since day one. I was trying to do research on how to go about purchasing a new iPhone without AT&T knowing about it and without me having to renew my contract. I want to stay with AT&T, but I want to be eligible to get the '11 model iPhone (regardless of the Verizon rumors) without any hassle. Am I understanding things correctly that I don't need to buy a jailbroken/unlocked 3G iPhone since I already have a 1st gen iPhone (and AT&T customer) as I can simply take the SIM card from my original iPhone and put it in the 3G iPhone, correct? Also, am I wrong in that I should not update the software that comes installed on it? I do not want AT&T to know I have switched phones for fear of them renewing my contract right now. I am; however, safe to sync with iTunes as long as I do not upgrade the software, right? Here is what I am under the impression I can do: 1. Purchase a 3G iPhone (because it is less $ than a 3Gs) from somewhere. 2. Since I am currently with AT&T, I take the AT&T SIM card from my original iPhone and put it in the 3G iPhone. 3. Sync with iTunes, but do not upgrade the software. 4. Enjoy my "new" 3G iPhone and AT&T will never know I have it as long as I do not update the software and I do not have to worry about my contract being renewed without my knowledge. I apologize for being so OCD about this, but it is new to me and I am just wanting to make sure I have my bases covered. If there is anything I have overlooked, please do not hesitate to educate me and correct me. Thank you for your time in advance.
