    Anyone ever upgrade their iPhone?

    I currently have an iPhone 6. It was purchased from AT&T several years ago when I was on their post paid plan. Once my contract was up I went through the AT&T unlock process, ordered a GoPhone SIM, and am now using that.

    I am considering upgrading to an iPhone 8 Plus. From what I have read the best option is to purchase the SIM-free version, which should be model A1864 and usable on any network, directly from Apple. Once I receive the phone I can insert the SIM card from my iPhone 6 and everything should just work.

    For those of you that have upgraded to the iPhone 8, or any version of iPhone in the past, does this sound correct?

    Yep, just do a SIM swap and you'll be all set.

    Sim swap should work great.

    Yes that is absolutely correct!

    To detail my experience:

    I bought an AT&T 6s and unlocked it through their 6-month program.

    Then I bought a 7+ unlocked, backed up my 6s to my macbook via itunes, swapped sim cards and restored the phone through the backup.

    Within 30 minutes, everything was the exact same except I was now using the 7+!
