    Im getting my Captivate soon, and I currently have the unlimited data with at&t for my iPhone. Can i simply remove my sim card from the iPhone and start using it in the captivate? I dont want to take a chance of them messing up my account and losing my unlimited plan.

    no biggie for me, i have my google voice for voicemail, and google voice also does my cell number from at&t.

    I cant wait for this phone!!!

    Checked my online account before I took the sim card out of the iphone and it showed I had an iphone. After I switched sims, logged onto my account and it showed I had the Captivate.

    I had the Iphone 1st Gen (Edge) and they took my SIM card from my Iphone and put it in my Captivate.

    I bought my Captivate today, walked to my truck, took my sim out of the iphone, put it in the Captivate, powered on, made a phone call. :) Works great, and I love this phone.

    Be wary, though. Sometimes, they make you activate a new SIM so you can agree to the new contract. They made me do that and I almost lost my unlimited data plan and, for S&G, they took away my messaging plan. I was so angry that I made them put back both plans and give me credit.

    For those of you who used your iphone sim on a captivate and kept your unlimited data plan, did you buy the phone at the full price or could you get upgrade pricing?

    how about the other way around. can i take the sim card out of my captivate and put it back in my iphone 3G? Going to the beach and i rater take my old 3G to the sand rather then my new device.
