Can I switch SIM cards between two AT&T Phones? Go Phone

I have a very old but unreliable AT&T phone and I have one coming to me in the mail which is a old AT&T Iphone which is no longer in contract. If I activate my sim in the phone I have right now will I be able to switch to and start using the phone that's coming in the mail or should i wait to activate it on there?

I would wait for the new phone and activate the sim there. From what I have heard, a sim is locked to the phone it is activated to, for a period of 6 months (unless that has changed), which would then require you to get a new sim when the new phone comes.
