Good morning, this may sound dumb but I don't know how to to do this.


My wife currently has a iPhone 3g with her mobile number and the Sim card is the old style standard sim

I am transferring my iPhone 4 to her and that has a microsim with my number info on it.


Does this mean that I have to get a clean microsim for her or will all the data transfer from Itunes to the 'new' iP4.


Now, how do I actually go about doing it?

Do I take my sim out ot the iP4 and put it into the micro adaptor and slot it into her phone and back up from her machine, or what do I do - Please respond in technophobe (I'm an old duffer:-) )
