Hopefully someone might know the answer to this - I am looking at getting the 3G iPhone when it is released however my own contract doesnt expire until Feb 09 - spoke to O2 today and they said I can purchase the iPhone when it is released and they can convert my contract over to an iPhone contract for no charge - the only extra cost to me will be paying for the iPhone fully - no subsidised cost of £159 (16Gb) - she said it will be about £250 (or £200 for 8Gb)
However my wifes phone (a contract also in my name) expires 4 days before the new iPhone is released. If I purchase the iPhone, activate it with her SIM (and sing up to the 18 month contract) and then put my SIM into it, will I still be able to use everything? I currently pay £35 a month for each of the contracts and already get the free internet bolton so the contract wont actually be any different really cost wise.
Using my wifes contract to upgrade sounds unfair to her but thats how we got our current phones - I used her upgrade and she used my upgrade for the phones we wanted and use now.
Can someone who currently has an iPhone and another O2 SIM try this out? If you put the other SIM into the iPhone, does everything still work ok?

Also, although its only beta, 2.0 was released and 2 hours later it was jailbroken - http://iphone.unlock.no/ (which is known as 1.1.2 from what Ive read on the net

The IMEI on the simcard is logged on the activation along with the serial number so for example if your phone is faulty and you got a replacement you would need to activate it again via itunes (of course this wouldnt mean entering another contract)

Well at least it seems like I should be able to put a normal O2 SIM into an iPhone after it is activate (can someone just please confirm that for me)
