    It should, except unless you have a BIS plan you won't get full use of the BB.

    Something tells me you wrote that on your S3...

    Oh ya...it was the constant use of BBC instead of BB.

    But ya...need some sort of BIS plan to fully use the 9900

    Changing your plan usually doesn't cost anything, but I can't be sure. I'm not an AT&T customer.

    I think they use the same SIM as most others.

    Why not wait a few weeks for BB10? Dump the Sammy on Kijjiji thereafter

    If S3 uses micro, you do need an adapter. BUT, having said that, the adapter is pretty cheap

    Just make sure you dont put a empty SIM adapter in your 9900.

    It can break it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've switched between iphone, androids, and my 9900 a few times. Just go into ATT and they will give you a new sim for free. You need your data to be switched from regular data (iPhone/android data) to BB data plan. It doesn't cost a thing.

    To answer your question about SIM cards, no the S3 and the 9900 don't have the same type. The S3 takes a micro-SIM, while the 9900 accepts a mini (regular) SIM. You'll need an adapter, as someone's already said. The adapters are pretty cheap. You can get one from amazon.com for less than $2.

    Regarding data plans, you should get a BIS plan. Even if you plan to swap devices, you should get a BIS plan, for it doubles up as a generic data plan if you put your SIM in a non-BB.
