Changing phones with already existing ATT numbers

I have an old IPhone I want to use for one of my lines that still has a much older phone. I can't find how I can change the phones when the SIM cards are different size??

Re: Changing phones with already existing ATT numbers

You will have to take the phone to ATT to get a SIM card activated for the old phone on your number.

Corporate stores will do this for free.

Re: Changing phones with already existing ATT numbers

What if my replacement phone came with the right size SIM card? It says not to activate it as a new service...

@Cynotd You need to call to get the replacement sim activated with your number.
