Hi. I have an HTC One V right now with a regular sim and cheap plan and somebody gave me an iphone 4s, will my old plan work with the iphone 4s and will i be able to use my old sim card without having to upgrade my plan?

Yes, it should work. I do believe though that you'll need a microSIM for the 4s? If so, all you need to do is get the correct sized SIM and activate it in your self service account. No need to change plans :)

Sophia is right! Iphone 4s need a micro Sim.

Once you get the correct SIM, you just need to activate it :)

Log into Self serve > Mobile Phone > Swap Mobile Phone
Step 1 : "Upgrade my current phone"
Step 2 : "Does the new phone you're upgrading to use a SIM card?"
Select "yes", and enter a new sim # then continue

If you can get a hold of a SIM cutter, that will work too. We have one in the kiosk and it has saved our butts several times already ie. we run out of micro SIMs on a particular carrier but have excess of regular-sized ones.

Both phones have different size of sim cards.So you will need to convert your sim card size from Mini-SIM to Micro-SIM and check whether it's your iphone 4s is unlocked or not.If you have a network locked phone means,you will need to unlock it.For unlocking you can approach your service provider or else try to buy an unlocking service from any one of the online unlocking service provider like http://www.theunlockarena.com/apple-i...
