The sim card is used to verify account authenticity. If you remove your sim from one device and put it in another your number will transfer with the sim rather than changing an ESN on the account. You can also copy your phone numbers to your sim and transfer those as well. Updating your sim from a 32k will give you a larger storage capacity and on some devices allow you to access cingulars 3G markets.

SIM cards sometimes can go bad. Also; a customer using a 32K SIM card will not take advantage of what our network can offer. 32K Sims don't or can't handle the whole spectrum offered nowadays

Sure, if you enter a security code and then PUK code incorrectly more than three times the sim will be permanently disabled. On occasion an unexplainable error will occur in which switching the sim fixes the problem. For instance i had someone in here with a phone that could call outbound but not recieve. Techs couldn't resolve issue but switching the sim did the trick.

just visit a corporate store and usually they will swap at no charge, if they do charge it should be about 25.00/ no contract.
