Replacing a failing iphone and I'm on the pre-pay/Go-Phone plan. Can I....

...just pop out the sim card from my old phone and put it in my new phone and be ready to go or is it gonna be some big complicated PITA? And will I have any trouble setting the new phone up with itunes to sync apps and stuff?

My plan was setup by AT&T for my old iPhone when I got it so its all legit and official w/AT&T.



16GB iPhone *dying*, FutureSonics Atrios, LiveWires Custom IEM's, home studio, lots of old dusty vinyl, 200 GB's on the hard drive, Kef Coda II's on Hafler amps, Event BAS's.

Well thanks for nothing but here's how it went...

It was easy. Swapped the sim cards and booted up and it had my number and call history. Had to call to get my voice mail password reset cause I had forgotten it then visual voice mail worked. Performed a backup of my old phone and then restored that to the new phone and it migrated all my email, calendar, SMS and browser data. Had to move my apps and music manually but that's ok.
