changing from iPhone 4 16G to 32G

A friend no longer needs her 32G iPhone 4 (work thing and she's moving to a different device). I have an "older" 16G device. Can I simply pop the SIM from my phone into hers and have a new phone with double the capacity?

Should be able to, but I would recommend syncing the new iPhone to iTunes to make sure that everything is personally your's and that you and your iTunes account are familiar with the switch.

Since you already have an iPhone 4, that should work.  I would recommend that you contact AT&T and let them know that you have changed devices giving them the IMEI of your "new" device so that they are less likely to have problems after you make the swap.  They do keep track of your device's IMEI so when it changes, you are supposed to notify them to reduce the risk of problems.  Most of the time, it is so they can make sure their back-end systems are set to match your hardware and everything will work.
