I probably not going to do this, or i don't even know if I can. But lets just say I was going to. Is it possible to switch the sim card in my iPhone 3g with lets say like the Samsung impression or any non smartphone? or would it need to be a smart phone? or can it not be done? I mean I read that sim cards you can put in any phone, but it can be done w/ a non smartphone, what would happen to the data plan? i would just use it for texting and calling. nothing else really! i would buy a phone full retail price? i mean i don't know if this would even work but i'm just saying what would happen in this situation? BTW i have at&T obviously :)

and sorry i'm new here so i don't know if this has been asked before.. please don't be rude or anythingg. sorry if it has been asked.

You can use your sim in any phone. Calling and texting works but data plan may or maynot due to ATT recognizing that it's not an iPhone. I use a cheap Go Phone when I'm outside playing with the kids with my iPhone sim card. Oh and it needs to be on ATT to work.

Last month I dropped and broke my phone. For a few days, until I was able to get to the Apple Store to replace it, I simply put the SIM card into my old Treo 650. The Treo worked perfectly and I was able to receive text messages and pages. I did not check to see if I had internet access but I experienced no problems.
