    Wouldn't hurt to use the new SIM card if yours is over 8-12 months old. People fail to realize that SIM cards wear out over time, especially if you use your phone a lot. It doesn't cost anything to have it changed either, feel fortunate you got a SIM card in your box for free... they go for $20 at the T-Mo stores. Just call customer service and tell them you'd like to switch to a new SIM card that you already have, and they will ask for certain numbers from the card. :)

    Well actually I'm just holding onto it as a extra card just incase my old one dies. But I might have to use it to activate MyFavs feature. I'm debating whether or not to switch from a standard plan to myfavs

    Are you talking about taking your contacts from Outlook or Outlook express? If you are then you have to export your contacts to a CSV format then upload those contact to your gmail account. It's real easy takes about 2 minutes. You might have to edit some of your contacts Gmail seems like it requires first and last name so if you only have a first name or just one name on a contact when you import it to g-mail it's going to appear as only the phone number, e-mail, or IM screenname. Do a search on Google
