iPhone 4 to iPhone 5
Edited by Eltalite27 on Feb 19, 2013 at 12:56:35 PM

Hey Everyone I'm new to the forums!

I have a couple questions regarding the iPhone 5. I currently have an iPhone 4 that I got back in November of 2011. My contract was renewed in August but I did not upgrade to the iPhone 4 until November. My question is: I recently obtained an Iphone 5 that I ordered off of eBay. I got through the activation process smoothly but as expected I have no cell service. Can I got to my local AT&T store and have them swap all my info such as my phone number, contacts, etc. from the micro sim in my iPhone 4 to the smaller nano sim in my iPhone 5? What costs will be involved in this procedure as well? Thanks.

The iphone does not store contacts on the sim. The way to transfer all your information from the old iphone is to do a backup, then do a restore on the iphone5 using that backup. You can either backup to your pc or to icloud. As for that nano-sim that came with the iphone5, you need to activate it on your account and that you could do at your locat AT&T store.

No, shouldn't cost anything.

So this wouldn't count as an upgrade?

If you bought the phone privately, it's not considered an upgrade.
