Can i take the sim card out of my iphone 3g and put it in a friend s older iphone not a 3g and expect my basic phone services and mail to work?
Stick a paperclip into the little hole on the top, and the SIM card should pop out.

Yes I did it this summer.. Your iPhone needs to be unlocked so that you can insert a local SIM card.. Cheers,. Michael. you can rent the sim in the site www.atsisrael.com. Dan
yes but if you are looking for a more advanced iphone totally get the iphone 4
You will have to connect it to your PC/Mac to activate it. When that has been done it'll allow you to access the menu.
Yes, all currently sold iPhones can receive internet from AT&T's 3G wireless internet in America and other carriers' 3G internet in other countries.
Original answer by Markbarner Edited by Arianna Lovendino 3G mobile internet is faster. GPS functions are a little bit moreprecise. Sounds are louder. I would buy an iPhone 3G, if I wereyou. But you can wait. There is a new iPhone model arriving inJuly.
No, Boost Mobile phones use an iDEN wireless network. iPhones use a GSM network. While both use sim cards their networks are totally incompatible and you cannot exhange one sim card for the other. I simple comparison would be trying to tune an AM only radio to an FM station, it just won't work.
\nyes. as long as your sim-card are allowed in other countries. ask your phone company if you can travel with the iphone
\n. \nThere is a small chance you have no enabled 3G. To do this follow these steps.\n. \nGo to Settings > General > Network and Enable 3G should be set to on.\n. \nAlso your area may not have 3G capabilities. In this case there is no 3G signal for 3G to work. To check 3G coverage contact your pro…vider.\n. \nAlso if your iPhone is a 1st Generation and not the iPhone 3G you do not have 3G capabilities.

it will be $199 for the 16 gb and $299 for the 32 gb model
Can you buy an iPhone and just put the sim card from your existing ATT 3G phone in I did so in my brother's iPhone and got service and wanted to know if there was a way to do this with a new iphone?
An AT&T 3G sim card will work in a new iPhone. yessss you can :) but the box for the iPhone comes with a little tool to help you open the little compartment for the sim card.... its hidden right under that part where the phone is displayed, under that flap thing....... yeah... WELL its silver… and has a small tip! not hard to miss! :) okay bye! (MORE)
If you mean,' Do iPhone 3GS's have Verizon service?' No, not anymore, as of 17/10/2011 you can only get the iPhone 3GS on AT&T!
the 3gs is a lot faster all around. it also has a compass. takes better pictures , ad has a few more features if your trying to decide definitely pay a little for for the 3gs its well worth the extra money
most of the improvements (speed, new apps, fixing bugs, etc.) are just software changes, so your old iphone 3g is basically the same as the 3gs with the free software upgrade, the only real difference being that the new iphone 3gs has a built in video cam function. so, final answer, it is worth it i…f you do not have an iphone already (although the at&t service is a bit pricey) if you have an iphone already, just get the upgrade. (and if you really need a pocket cam/video recorder, just buy a flip cam for like $99) IMPROVEMENT: if you want to record video on your original iPhone or iPhone 3G, there's an app for that! (GET IT IN CYDIA) (MORE)
It depends on which country you are in and which plan you are on, but for a two year contract (which seems to be the minimum) it's around $2000.
You can take video using iPhone 3G using Cycorder which is available for free, but to do so require that your jailbreak your iPhone 3G. You can also spend your money on the iPhone 3GS so that AT&T can laugh up your money and continue to provide horrible services.
Through iTune to sync send video to iPhone. but not all the video could be played on iPhone, iPhone does not support all of the formats, you should convert ur videos to the format supported on ur iPhone.
go to settings, general, bluetooth and turn it on. you can only use the bluetooth feature for bluetooth headphones
I have an iPhone 3GS and the only difference is that you can take videos, you can use voice control, and it has more memory. Let me improve that answer. The iPhone 3G[S] is more than 2x faster, has more powerful processors. (You need it for most 3D apps (like games) to run smoothly, and for augmen…ted reality.) The iPhone 3G and original iPhone CAN record video, once jailbroken. (This is free) The iPhone 3G[S] costs more than the iPhone 3G. The iPhone 3G[S] has a digital compass. (This allows for navigation and augmented reality apps.) The iPhone 3G[S] is available in Black or White, while the iPhone 3G is available in only Black. The iPhone 3G[S] has restrictions made by Apple to make jailbreaking just that little bit more complex, but it is always possible. When the 3G[S] was first released, jailbreaks for each firmware version were a while behind jailbreaks for the 3G, but now there is more known about its inner workings, and it is more widely adopted, jailbreaks come out at nearly the same time, if not sooner, for the 3G[S], so no worries now. But if you are thinking of buying an iPhone, I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND waiting till June/July to see the new iPhone, and if it will be worth its price. There are reports of the NEW iPhone being cheaper. (MORE)
You can use an internet service with your 3G provided if you are:. 1) Using a 3G sim card and have your service activated. 2) Are in a 3G coverage area. 3) Are on an internet plan. For more information, you should head to your mobile service provider.
No I don't think so but you can get them in the app store not all are free in the app store but some are and also remember 2 more things one is I recommend you read the reviews on the game before you get it and also remember if you get a game in the app store you have to pay for it monthly
It depends. In some yes, in some no. It depends if the vodafone mobile is working on the same range or something as the XT network runs on. Check your Vodafone or Telecom store.
unlocked only means it can be activated on any service, not that the phone is any better, when the iphone came out it was only available on one service, unlocked means you can activate it on any service
Look at the top edge of the iphone 3g. there is a long button, and a headphone hole. See the tiny hole between the two? stick a small object, such as the little pick that comes with it, in the hole, and the sim card holder will pop out.
you can tell because the regular iPhone doesn't have a camera while the iPhone 3gs has one and other new accessories.
It does, but you are not able to send any files or photos. You may connect to Headphones or a Wireless device.
With your hands. IMPROVEMENT: hehe made me laugh. Umm here's how: you get a life, and quit being a hobo!
No it will not work, I tried doing that myself when I was repairing an iphone because i thought I used the right screen. It turns out that the digitizer layout is different. So if you do switch the screens up, if you click on an app, it will go to the one next to it.
yes it's a really good phone and even more than a phone I would reccommend you to buy one but not the new than buy the 3gs it's much cheaper and still very good.
If you put your SIM card from your old phone into your new iphone 3G or 3GS you got from eBay will you be charged any kind of fee for upgrading to a new phone?
No, however you must keep in mind that AT&T requires a special data package for iPhone to be added on your account. Without this additional package, the iPhone will not function on AT&T's network. It is possible to unlock the iPhone to work on any GSM network, but doing so will void the remainder of… the warranty. (MORE)
Exactly the same how ever the iphone 3g has a little bit wider screen and faster data speeds due to the fact that it supports 3g whereas the original iphone only supports edge or 2g
OF COURSE , all phones HAVE to have a sim card to work because it must store your number and any information you put on the phone. i think it may work without one , BUT i dont think you can save contacts or even get calls.
iPhones need a SIM card to work as a phone. If you don't have a SIM card you can use it as an iTouch.
It's in the middle of the Power button and the earphone slot. You will see a small hole on top. stick a small paper clip, bobby pin, pin, etc. into the hole and push lightly down. A slide containing the SIM card will eject and you can pull it out and eject the card.
the sim card just holds network information not phone information so yes you can transfer your sim card without any problems i had a sim card from about 3 years ago and i just bought a iphone 3gs and it works fine in it
The iPhone 3G was launched July 11, 2008 The 3GS almost a year later, June 19 2009
Yes but you will not get the benefit of the 3G speed. Any AT&T SIM can be used in any AT&T device, except for the micro-SIM in the iPhone 4.
Yes you can but you will not get the benefit of the 3G network speed, you will only get EDGE. Also this will require an iPhone data plan change and if you had the unlimited plan on the iPhone 3Gs you will lose it and you will not be able to get it back.
You either have to purchase an unlocked iPhone or jailbreak and unlock it yourself after you purchase it. This process does void any manufacturer warranty.
No, it does not. The two models use different cables altogether; sucks, I know. Life would be so much easier.
First off I'm assuming you meant iPhone 4, not 4G (common mistake). And to answer your question, no. The iPhone 3G has a much larger sim card than the iPhone 4, but you can just take them to At&t and they will transfer everything to the new card for you. If you already have both phones, I doubt they… will even charge you. (MORE)
No, you can only get 4G service on 4G compatible devices. It is possible that the next iPhone released will be 4G compatible although that is still unknown at this point.
It goes somewhere beside the power button. It has a mini key or like a metal that you put it in a few cm beside the power button then it opens then you insert the sim card.
The iPhone 3GS was never offered with Verizon. Most got them with AT&T, and got their phones unlocked so they can use the phone with other service providers.
No. Verizon started with iPhone 4. They will have their own phone for Verizon since they do not have sim cards and AT&T does.
Hey It depends on your location and your network For example, in the US, AT&T have a deal with Apple for a 2 year contract. Now, you can always jailbreak your iPhone and then put in the other Sim card. You will retain your number. But I can't really say if your network will trace it or not.
Yes, it will. Most phones are good except for Blackberry has problems with Speakout. You will have to configure the mms settings for the data to work, if you call them they are quite helpful.
It is the sim card that relates to weather your phone is 3G or not, BUT- - - you must be sure that the handset that you are using is indeed 3G compatible! As a rule, virtually all new handsets are all 3G compatible, it would only be pretty old handsets that wouldn't be. The uk really should have 4…G up and running by now, but sadly, we are lagging behind other countries in this area. Some parts of the uk use H+, which in basic terms is kind of like 3G.5. I hope this helps. (MORE)
No. The iPhone 3GS is sadly a GSM only phone, so it cannot function on Sprint (or Verizon's) bandwidths.
Lol im sorry to say no you cant because Verizon is one of the only services that dont use sim cards :(
About 36 dollars with the one-time activation fee. The sim card is free with the plan and phone
