    So I recently got my first Android phone from the AT&T store last weekend and I absolutely love it.

    In a week, I'll be starting school and this year I'll be having PE. During my freshman year, both my phone and iTouch were stolen from my locker.

    I'd love to keep my Galaxy S4, so I was planning on SIM swapping to the iPhone 4S for days I have PE. So I asked the salesman at the store if I could swap between phones, and unfortunately he said no. However, it's possible that he misinterpreted my question as if I could use my iPhone 4S SIM card in my GS4.

    So I've been searching all over but I can't get a definite answer. Some say it's safe and others say AT&T impose fees or something. I could really use a response before school starts.

    I personally can't see why it would be an issue.

    I came from an iPhone 4S to a Galaxy S4 with very little issues, none of which we SIM related

    I'm pretty sure the salesman I talked to at BestBuy said he did this. I know he bounces around from Android to Android, so maybe the iCrap is different. I could see that ;)

    I had to do it anytime I installed a beta build on my iPhone 4S (to activate the phone). You can do it no problem, although I would keep iMessage turned off completely on the iPhone, and whenever it prompts you to associate your phone number with iMessage, say No. Otherwise you might start missing text messages because iMessage will screw things up. Other than that, happy swapping.
