    Default How to change from one iPhone to another?
    Hi,

    I just would like some help. My friend is getting the new 3GS this summer, so he is giving me his 3G. My current phone is 1st Gen iPhone. My plan will be upgraded to the new $30/mo data plan, so there's no issue there. I just would like to know how to shift from current iPhone to the one I'll be getting from my friend. Do I just connect his iPhone to my computer? Will that let me wipe out his iPhone and re-activate with my number? I'd like to know what to do and be prepared. Thank you for your help in advance

    Just take your simcard out of your 1st gen iphone and put it into the one he's giving you. Then plug the phone into your computer to set up your account and what not.
