    Okay, here's my situation:
    My family has 3 iphones. 2 are eligible for an upgrade, 1 is not. Say I upgrade the 2 eligible iphones to the iphone 4.

    Could I switch the number of the non-eligible iphone with one of the iphones 4's?

    I know with almost any other phone it would be as simple as switching the SIM card, but the microSIM poses a problem. Could I take the phones to an ATT stote for new SIMs? Would they be okay with the switch?

    Thanks

    AT&T will not let you upgrade a different line and then switch the sim/number or at least that is what they told my wife. She had to wait until her line was available for an upgrade.

    I spoke to AT&T today about that and they said, they could switch it at the store. They really don't care which line you use the phone on as long as you sign hat 2 year agreement, they could care less what you do with the phone. Just go to the store and get it done or get a SIM trimmer that will perfectly cut a standard SIM to microSIM size. That's what I am going to do because I don't want to go anywhere near an AT&T store on launch day.

    I actually bought a microSIm card cutter off eBay for this purpose. So hopefully it works as designed.

    Not sure who she spoke to but I do this all the time. I've upgraded several times on any of my 5 lines and switched the phones. For instance, I used my wife's upgrade last year to get the 3GS and once I activated it, put my SIM in there and called AT&T to switch the IMEI and they did it no problem.
