    The phone may work but your voicemail and other features won't work.

    I would just ask. I know for a fact it was an issue. A mother was buying an iPhone for her kid for Xmas and wanted to put the SIM into his old phone until Xmas when she gave him the iPhone. There were issues with numerous things using the regular phone with the iPhone SIM

    No one seems to understand your question.

    From what I understand, you're going to be switching to AT&T, and if so, YES you can switch sim cards back and forth and your voicemail will work. As long as the other crappy phone supports a sim card (if it's from at&t, it will) then you will be fine.
