Whatthe... Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)
Sorry if this has been asked before. I tried a search and didn't come up with anything. Anyway, I'm about to swap my 8GB iPhone 3G model with a 16GB iPhone 3G model and I'm wondering how that impacts the apps, activiation, etc. I'm going to give my old phone to one of our employees. Questions:

1. Will the new phone automatically activate when I put in my SIM and sync to iTunes?

2. Will the old phone need to be reactivated if I put in his SIM?

3. What happens with the apps I download? Do they transfer over to the new phone and deleted off the old one?

Sorry, I'm new to this iPhone and iTunes stuff...

    The SIM card is 'married' to the IMEI of the phone - contact AT&T (or just go into a store) to arrange the SIM swap.

    Apps are linked to your iTunes Store account and synced from iTunes - they will be transferred from your computer to the new phone (and deleted from the old one when that's synced with a different computer).
