answer 1
Yes. You can also use this phone to add a line to your existing service. You will need to talk a service rep to add a line but just put your old sim card in for existing service.

All you have to do is put in your sim card from your existing AT&T phone and you're good to go!

yes. take the sim card out of your current phone and place into this phone -- it will bring over all your contacts. Contact AT&T and they will have you dial a bunch of numbers and your screen will come up with a long line of numbers -- the rep will ask you for these numbers to update your account. That's it -- all set to use.

I've found I can have a nearly dead battery and charge to full in under an hour when charging directly from an outlet. Using the USB cable to charge from a computer seemed to me to take significantly longer.
