Best Answer

If the phone is from the same carrier then yes, it is very simple.

If you were to try and put, for example, a T-Mobile SIM into a Cingular phone or vice versa, you will need to "Unlock the phone" first.

In your old Virgin phone - copy everything you want to keep (contacts, pictures etc) from the memory to the SIM card. Put the SIM card in the new phone, then copy everything from the SIM card to the new phone's memory. Once you've done that - replace the old SIM with the one that came with your new phone.

No, you should not sell your SIM card. You can sell your phone without SIM card. SIM card identifies you and your phone number registered with the mobile service provider. **Some one can misuse it.

The only way to get the phone call history of your mobile number when you get a new sim is by backing up the history on the internal memory of the phone. Even if the sim card has the same phone number, generally, the phone call history trail will be wiped out. Alternatively, phone call histories are recorded internally and can always be retrieved from the phone carrier website.
