So the 3GS used a SIM card obviously. And the new iPhone will use microSIM.

What does this mean in terms of upgrade? I guess I just want to know the process that will occur in store. Will they connect your current phone to the new one and transfer the data from the big old SIM card to the tiny microSIM?

Also for those of us who have backup phones/secondary....the microSIM won't work in those phones right? For the most part?

I was thinking/hoping that maybe further down the line I could get a Palm Pre Plus as a backup/secondary phone but if the slot for that is a SIM card theres no easy way to swap from the iPhone 4 to a 2nd phone is there?

Basically you just backup your current iPhone and when you get your iPhone 4 you just plug into iTunes, activate and restore from backup.

Is this what you're asking about? As far as the sim card goes, this micro sim will be totally different than other phones in terms of size.
