Unlocked iPhone 4S from Apple Store

Hey!

 

So since I'll be moving out of the US in less than a year, I don't want the 2 year contract and I want a phone I can bring back to Canada, so I'm opting to buy the unlocked iPhone 4S from the Apple Store (available in November). Question is, will I be able to use my sim card from my 3GS or will AT&T give me a new one with no problem?

 

Thanks!

The 4S uses a micro-SIM and the new phone should come with one already installed. Your 3GS uses a full size-SIM.

Okay, except Apple is selling it unlocked and says it is compatible with AT&T. My question now is will AT&T fuss about my changing phones?

If you bring your own phone to AT&T, they don't care. Since they aren't subsidizing a phone you got on you own, all you pay is for the service. If you already have service with them, they don't care if you swap phones. You're still paying them.
