I am buying an iPhone on Friday morning and want to use it on XT. I am currently with Telecom on CDMA, so I figure that on Thursday afternoon I will go to a Telecom store / dealer and get them to convert my number to a SIM card on an open-term plan. Should that cost me anything? I thought I read that only pre-pay SIMs carried a charge but want to make sure before I go in.

Moving from CDMA on account to XT on account should cost nothing - I did it last Friday for my personal account and the SIM card was free.

I got my SIM free when I converted over (on a plan). I had to pay for some extra SIMs for other purposes on prepaid.

I beleive ti should cost nothing. however, I believe dealers (as opposed to Telecom stores) could charge you if they want to.

I got mine from a dealer (Leading Edge) and there was no charge.
