    Unfortunately, iPhone (yet) does NOT support SIM Contacts or SIM SMS's. Hope the future firmware upgrades do!

    As far as I know, you need to transfer your contacts from your sim (using your old phone) to your computer and use iTunes too sync.
    You can't sync SMS messages form another phone.

    An OSX program was recently released that allows syncing and archiving of SMS messages.
    I've got two states of mind, stoned and asleep

    That's a solution I can't afford right now. Actually, it's the contacts that I'm more interested in. I can abandon the SMS messages, no big deal.
