    I'm curious about this as well.

    I found this:

    MicroSIM Card Cutter Looks Awesome

    Comes with an adapter so you can still use your cut SIM card in the normal phones.

    You activate the new phone just like you would with the old phone, right in iTunes. They send/give you a SIM with every iPhone, this times its just a microsim.

    And you wont lose your contacts, if you just back them up.....this is pretty standard stuff

    The upgrade is on June 24th when the phone comes out, you can pre-order it on June 15th, but if its anything like the iPad was I think it was at 8am local time to pre-order not as soon as it turned midnight
