How changeable are SIM cards nowadays?

We were forced from Alltel to AT&T this spring, and got the freebie phone that was offered, which is, frankly, a rather crappy phone. But, this is the first phone I've ever had with a SIM card. Does that card mean I can get any phone with a SIM-card slot, insert the SIM, and - viola - it's suddenly my phone?

I like the idea that I could just pick something up off Craigslist or eBay and switch my phone without hoops to jump through...but my guess is that there are always hoops. Let me know what to watch out for, what is and isn't possible, etc. Also, I understand that SIM cards come in two sizes: mine is the bigger one.
