@jl45 as long as it's the same size, yes you can, but the data settings are different, so you'll need to use the apn "mobile.o2.co.uk" on the iPhone and switch your data type to standard data by calling customer service.

You will have to adjust your apn's if you are going to switch between phones and possibly contact customer service each time to amend your data bolt on. If you plan on getting another network for the iPhone or passing to a family member them make sure the phone is unlocked.

@jonsie, iPhone will run on standard data with the apn I gave above. VVM won't work on that though.

@jl45 

vvm is visual voicemail, but normal voicemail will work. That's about it really, most other stuff will work fine.
You just need to change "idata.o2.co.uk" to "mobile.o2.co.uk" and leave the password the same.
