    I'm not eligible for a upgrade so I can't get the new iPhone unless I use someone else's on my plan. The problem is my sister wants my phone and I want to use her husband's upgrade but I'm not sure how to do it since he won't be able to use the microsim in his phone and his wife wants mine. Sorry it's so confusing but is there anyway I can sell her my phone, get her a new micro sim, use his upgrade and get him a new full size sim? Or should I just wait until Feb and use my own upgrade?

    Go to the service provider. Tell them you want to upgrade his line. Once it's done tell them which #s you want switched to each phone. My dad still has a razor. I always use his upgrade At&t is always awesome about it.

    Getting new SIMs from AT&T is pretty easy. Another option is to cut a standard SIM down to micro SIM size or make or buy an adapter for the micro SIM.

    +1 for the micro sim adapter. Works great!

    Be sure to go to a core AT&T store if you get a sim. Those authorized fake AT&T stores will charge $25 for a sim.

    Core = corporate
    Authorized fake = franchise

    I just had AT&T ship me a replacement. The SIM was free, but they charged $10 for 2 day shipping.

    Thanks everyone. Is it worth going from the 4 to the 4s? The main reason I want one is because I was never able to get the 4 with the flash fixed. My sister in law just got a 4 and flash looks great on hers. I traded in the one I got from preorder for a new one then they said there wasn't anything wrong with that one so I still have yellow/orange pictures.

    I would recommend it. I have done the 4-4S upgrade. It's like having a car that is 125BHP going to a car that has 175BHP. Not a major increase but definitely worth it with all the new bells and whistles
