Put current SIM card into new ATT-provided replacement phone?
Just received the free replacement phone (an LG B470 flip phone) due to the 2G phase-out. My current phone, Motorola C168i, (yes, I know it's old) which still works flawlessly other than the 2-G issue, uses a miniSIM card, which has "32K" shown on it. I have been on the same ATT plan for about 15 years (!), so it has been a month-to-month for quite a while. In the letter which came with the new phone, it says I should "activate my new device through our easy step-by-step automated process" within 10 days or they will automate it for me....so here's my question--Is it even necessary to "automate" this new phone if I simply put my current SIM card into it, rather than using the "blank" SIM card that came with the new phone? I did a little research and what I found says that this 32K current card should work fine phone in this new 3G phone, just pop it in and carry on without having to do anything, and my plan stays the same, etc. Is this correct? Please reply in laymen's terms, LOL!
