    Default swapping sim cards from a window's phone to an iphone 4s

    my friend recently got a window's phone. now she hates it. i have two lines one of which im not using. so i have a 4s on one line and a 5 on the other im using the iphone 5. my question is. can she swap her sim card from her window's phone into my iphone 4s? and if so will it still be linked to my AT&T account? like will she be using my data, messaging, minutes or will putting her sim card in the iphone 4s automatically make it so when she uses the phone all the messaging, data, minutes she uses get's charged to her account? please help!

    If her SIM is the same size - it can be placed in the iPhone4S and using her SIM will ensure all use is on her account, plan, etc. - if not the same size, it is possible to trim to make compatible... if all else fails, she can get a new SIM on her account for the iPhone - and all will be well - her use of the phone will not be on your account.

    Hi there, yes she can use the SIM from her WP has long as it is a micro SIM.

    The 4s will be using the information associated with her SIM and will not affect your account in any way.

    Hope that helps. 😄
