YOu have to activate the sim card in the new phone. Your sim is associated with the serial number on your original iPhone. It won't be a big deal.

Just do a back up of the old phone on iTunes and you will be good to go.
PS- that is in addition to the above post.

you shouldn't even have to switch the SIM, correct?

Yes that's correct. the new phone will have a new sim that will be activated in the activation process through iTunes. It activates the new sim while disabling the old sim at the same time.
