    This might be a stupid question by havent had a new phone since the 4s. Is all you do to activate my 5s "slide to unlock" & follow the instructions? LOL

    Yeah. It'll take you through the process of connecting the phone with your Apple ID and all that.

    Did you have a back up prepared on your 4S via iCloud?

    yes, from AT&T
    When I purchased my iP5s from AT&T, I was given a activation sheet to follow.
    if I remember right, logging into your AT&T account was a activation link with the same instructions.

    When I activate my 5s, I can't use my 4s until I get a case I want, when I get a day off work?

    I meant, when I activate my 5s, I can't use my 4s? I don't have a case for my 5s yet, so I don't want to drop it & it break.Lol

    That's better. Lol. Yes, once you activate the 5s the 4s will be deactivated. If you have Verizon you can dial *228 then option 1 and follow the prompts to reactivate the 4s. If the 5s is not active yet just wait until you have your case.
