How do I swap my phone number with my daughters?

I have an 11 and hers is the 12. I want the better phone but don’t know how to swap our phone numbers.

Switch the SIMs.

You will need to backup each phone, reset, and restore to move the apps and data from each phone. Don’ forget about your Apple ID also.

FL_retire makes a good point... with a smart phone you have an associated online account which connects you to your iMessage, iCloud, contacts stored in the cloud, Apps downloaded, etc.  Just switching the SIMs will switch the numbers, but none of that other stuff.  You would need to reset the phones and log in with the appropriate account information on each phone.  A backup and restore will ensure no loss of information.
