I want to transfer my number to a new iPhone and I don't remember my account number or PIN number. Can you help me to find this information?

If you haven't cut your SIM card for iPhone yet, you can take advantage of the SIM card to transfer contacts from Motorola to iPhone. You need to go to your Contacts app and choose Export Contacts to SIM. Then the contacts can be transferred to the SIM card. Now you can cut the card and install it in iPhone, and go to Settings > Mails, Contacts, Calendars, and scroll down to find Import SIM Card Contacts. Now you are able to import the contacts from SIM card to your iPhone.

Another method is using Gmail. Android users can take advantage of Gmail (or other emails provide contacts sync function) to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone. The following tutorial will show you how to do it:
  1. Log in Gmail on your Android phone, and check the "Sync Contacts" option (If you are first time to use this method.
  2. After Gmail Contacts synced with your Android Contacts, you should turn to iPhone, and tap Settings > Mails, Contacts, Calendars, and tap Add Account. Then choose Google, and enter your Gmail account.
  3. After adding Google Account, you can turn on Contacts, and iPhone will ask whether you want to merge with your iPhone contacts. Click Yes and the contacts will be synced to your iPhone.
With the sync function of Gmail, people are able to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone with ease. If you aren't using Gmail on your iPhone, don't worry, you can take advantage of other email services like Yahoo, Outlook and so on.
You can also take advantage of the third-party iPhone transfer software to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone directly. Among all the iPhone transfer programs, iTransfer is regarded one of the best.

To transfer contacts from your current phone to a new phone by means of a SIM card, do the following:
  1. On your current phone, download the Copy to SIM Card app on the Google Play Store.
  2. Use the app to write all your current contacts that will fit on the SIM card.
  3. After writing is complete, put the SIM card in new phone.
  4. If new phone has built in SIM manager, use that to transfer contacts from SIM. If not, again use Copy to SIM Card to transfer contacts from SIM to phone.

Is it ok to change Sim card? if the sim in my iphone will be transfered to another phone will my contact be erase?

Before when phone memories were smaller, contacts were normally stored on the sim. However, if you consider the iphone, most of its contacts are already stored on the phone memory and not the sim.

most phones memories can be selected manually, either phone memory or sim.

if you are currently using your sim for your contacts and you are transferring to another phone, then your new phone will be able to use the contacts.

if you are currently using your phone memory for your contacts, then the contacts will be retained in your iphone and you won't be able to use them on your new phone.

Sim card causes iPhone to overheat and drains the battery.

I've tried to lock the iPhone to my tele provider in stead of letting it search for available networks (the automatic option in settings). Seems to work. But I will also get a new sim card. Strange problem though...

Cannot import contact from sim card to iphone 3G

Turn off the iPhone before inserting the sim, insert sim, turn on, import contacts. If you put the sim in the phone without restarting it for some reason it doesn't get all the contacts sometimes.
