More Video Advice From AT&T – How To Hand Down a V1 iPhone

ATTiPhoneHandMeDown

Many of us are working out what to do with our V1 iPhone as the countdown to the iPhone 3G ticks along – eBay it, keep it for nostalgia and collectability, or maybe pass it on to a family member or friend.  If you’re considering the last, hand-me-down sort of option, AT&T now has some guidance for you on this subject in a new video.

Not surprisingly, most of this is common sense stuff, but still useful in setting out what is required.  Here’s some of what’s highlighted in the video:

  • You can hand down your old iPhone to someone else while activating your new iPhone 3G at an Apple or AT&T store, or anytime thereafter.
  • Since your original iPhone’s phone number is going to be used on your new iPhone 3G, the person receiving the original iPhone will need a new SIM card, which you can get by stopping by an AT&T retail store.
  • You can add a new line or transfer an existing line to the original iPhone from home using iTunes. If you need help adding a new line, you can always walk into an AT&T store and see an associate.
  • Once you’ve obtained a new SIM card for the original iPhone, the original iPhone can be activated through iTunes like you originally activated it.
