Will my bill or anything change? I have the data plan too. I just want to swtch between phones.

nothing will change. you can even (with optus at least!) request for a full size sim card if you really wanted to. nothing changes afaik.

I'm using my micro SIM in a non-iphone (Samsung Omnia) and it works fine (on Telstra). I'm not even using an adaptor, I just lined the contacts up and the metal clip thingy holds it in place, has been used as normal for the last couple of weeks.

An adaptor will remove any chance of the SIM slipping though, and they are inexpensive. If you're going away from iPhone totally, why not ask your provider if you can swap SIMS for the larger one?

I don't see why not. Of course the phone in question would have to be on AT&T or unlocked (to guarantee it'll work).

I was going to suggest Dealextreme as well, I've bought other stuff of them before.

You could also try any mobile repair place or market stall, though it may cost you a bit more, depends on if you don't mind waiting for it to be posted.

Local store sends them out from QLD, fast shipping: iDevice Store (http://www.idevicestore.com).

Are there any better sim adapters out there? I got the deal extreme one, but it's just a bit flimsy since it's secured using the sticker pretty much?

Try this:

$1.92 - Micro Sim Card to Standard Sim Card Adapter (Black) - Gadgets (http://www.dealextreme.com/p/micro-sim-card-to-standard-sim-card-adapter-black-40832#open%20full%20view)

The problem with any of these is it can only add minimal amounts to the SIM thickness, or it won't fit in a slot for any SIM (they're designed to be a tight fit so the SIM doesn't wobble around in the slot which would stop it working).

I have several of the ones above (well, very similar at least) and they work just fine.
