Re: iPhone 4S switcheroo

Either you are not understanding me or I am not understanding you.
What we want to do is I get the new iPhone 4S to replace my 3GS and he stays with the iPhone 4 but it's his line we used to upgrade. So I don't quite understand all you are saying. N\My 3GS line's contract has not been fulfilled hence the ordering on his line for me.
It's not that simple. Even though they look the same, the SOC code for the 4S data plan is different. His number will be provisioned with a different (under the hood) data plan than your 3GS number is. Swapping all that is going to involve a lot more than simply swapping SIMs between the two 4 model phones.
So what do I do then?
I don't do anything to the phones at all and disregard the instructions in the email and either call them or go down to an ATT store? Last time we did the swap it wasn't on a launch day so I just walked into an ATT store and they just did it for us but that's going to be rather difficult this time. So there is no way I can just do this myself then?
