Can I switch iPhones on my account?

I have the family plan with AT&T. I have the iPhone 4 on my phone number, and my daughter has the iPhone 4S on her phone number. If I wanted to swap phones with her, could I take the SIM card out of both phones and swap them so that I have the 4S? Or do I need to take both phones up to AT&T and have them do it or some other kind of programming or settings change?

Also, if I did the swap at home or at the AT&T store, what all information would I end up losing? (contacts, texts, etc)

    The contacts should transfer with the SIM cards. Texts will likely stay in the phone memory.
