SIM and switching iPhone 5 to different line?
I opened a new line to get the iP5 and will be putting a dumbphone on it and the iP5 on mine. How does the SIM switching work? I know being an Apple product there can't be an accessible slot, so does it need taken to Apple to make the switch? Will they charge for the nano SIM? I know Verizon gives SIMs away free but as of yesterday they didn't have the nano listed on their site to ship. TIA!

I've done this a couple times over the years. The easiest way is to go to a carrier store and just tell them what you are doing. I know with AT&T last year with my iP4S they had no problem with the switching around of SIMs and told me it doesn't matter what line you use to upgrade and whether it not the new phone actually stays on that line.

I called Verizon today and asked because I am doing same thing... According to them, with the iPhone 5, you will not need a new nano sim. They can change phone numbers on the sim. They said this is only possible on the iPhone.
I was going to have a new nano sim sent for same reason. It they assured me it would not be needed. I suggest a few of you call and see if you get same answer.
