    I've got a 3gs with at&t. Will I be able to just take the sim out and put it in my streak without having to deal with at&t?

    If AT&T is like T-Mobile, you should be fine to just to plug in your SIM. I switch phones all the time.

    Geting the sim and out will be a bit of pain though. Not so easy to slip in and out.

    I cant speak speak specifically for AT&T but over here in the UK even though its labelled a "iphone" tariff in reality its just a fancy data tariff so moving the sim card from one phone to another is fine.

    I can speak for US AT&T and yes, you'll be fine (especially since Dell plans to bring the Streak to the US unsubsidized for AT&T)

    EDIT: However, if you plan on getting the new iPhone "4" or iPad, it gets trickier. These come with "Micro SIM" instead of a SIM card. In effect, it's a SIM card shaved down to just the contact point. Alas, due to it being smaller, it won't fit into a traditional SIM slot. However, iPad users have found convertors to work just fine: http://microsim-shop.com/ (there may be others, this is the one users of macrumor's forums pointed me to). You'll have to carry this little adaptor around with you whenever you want to swap phones (although perhaps you can leave it in your Streak just fine without losing it.

    I have a 3gs also and plan on upgrading to the streak. When I upgrade since I'm currently on the iPhone data plan will it kick me to the new 2gb plan since it would be the smartphone plan instead of the iPhone plan???

    I have heard that they are allowing people to keep those plans even if they switch smartphones.

    Don't even bother telling AT&T. It's OK to swap to a different phone. Especially since it looks like the Streak is only coming out unsubsidized directly from Dell, unlocked and acknowledged by AT&T. Not to start a conspiracy theory, but it seems like they are pushing their Apple exclusivity as much as they can -- including any and all mention of Android phones available for their network. You'd think they'd jump at the opportunity to offer the Nexus One, which they have not (but notice you can buy it for the other big three networks in the US subsidized). I figure this will be the same situation with the Dell.

    If you wish to update your plan, you can grandfather your unlimited data offering to a new contract, but no reason to do so.
