    Question Thinking of how to transition service to a new phone

    The contract on my current iPhone doesnt come up until December.
    The trade in values quoted by Gazelle are close to what I paid for it if I send it in by the first week of October.

    Assuming I can get the current carrier to unlock the phone, I am wondering if I moved the SIM card in the current phone to a temp phone to keep the service active until I can finish the contract out. At that point, I would transition to a carrier that has better coverage in my area.

    Is this possible ?
    May end up just having to wait to finish out the contract and then make the change.

    Suggestions ?

    That should work fine. What wireless provider do you have?

    It should be very easy to simply swap the SIM card between phones. Just remember to deactivate iMessage on the iPhone before you swap the SIM, or else you'll have problems receiving future messages from iPhone users.

    Thanks for the tip. Trying to find when I can get my hands on a Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition next.
