Sell iPhone 4S after upgrade and keep old phone? What do I do with the SIM?

Ok, so we have a few lines on our account that are eligible for upgrades so what I want to do is upgrade one line to an iPhone 4S and sell it.  I've been reading that this is done all the time, I'm just not sure what to do about the sim card that comes with the phone.  If I do the upgrade through best buy, can I just sell the phone with the sim included, or does best buy connect the phone to my account when I buy it?

Best buy may expect you to carry the phone on the line for some period of time or they will charge you a fee above and beyond ATT's normal fee. At the very least you want to activate the iPhone on your account then remove the SIM and activate your old phone again. If not, the buyer may end up activating the iPhone on your account and that is not what you want.
