Upgrading to iPhone 5s

I have an iPhone 4 that I need to upgrade to the 5s with the same phone number.  Is this as simple as backing up the 4 with iTunes then restoring the 5s with that backup?

 

Thank you

The phone number is programmed into the SIM card, not the phone. The 5s will come with a new SIM card already programmed with your number, as long as you get it from AT&T or Apple.
