    Hot Swapping: SIM to Berry to Razr and back

    Advertisement



    Please forgive me if this topic has been covered. I searched and found nothing.

    I have and 8700c on a BES. I have heard of being able to swap sim cards to a cell phone and back again w/ no problems. I'd like to use my Razr on the weekends and my 8700 during the week. Does anyone see any problems I may have by doing this? I understand I wont receive email on the razr, but what happens to the emails that are sent while the SIM is in the RAZR? Will they error as undeliverable or will they wait on the server until the SIM is replaced in the 8700?

    Dumb question or dumb idea or both?

    Dahmer, welcome to the stacks.
    I am unsure if this will cause probs on BES, someone smarter will be along to assist you soon!
    Been a long while since last login. Sorry all, adjusting to a new life is great and hell at the same time!!

    I'm not sure if the Razr and the 8100 have the same type of sim. If the razr is unlocked or on the same carrier, you should be able to make calls. And since it's not a bb, it won't be connected to BES, so emails will be treated in queue as if the BB is just turned off.
    Best I could say is just give it a try, worst that could happen is that it just won't work.

    To add to that. I have successfully used my 8700 Tmobile sim card in a low end unlocked Moto camera phone from a European carrier with no problems.

    Ben Marvin is right, it should appear that the BB is off, powered down, or in a dead zone- leaving those messages in cue,...Your BB pin number will not be broadcasting, and the sim (AS FAR AS I KNOW) does not operate the BB network,nor your company's BES, that is BB device specific.

    You should be fine. The RAZR won't log on to the BB infrastructure and so the RIM relay will fwd any mails. Your mails will pend on the BES, and when you put the sim back in your BB after the weekend mail should start to flow again.

    I do this all the time between my BB and my Sony Ericsson w810i and MDA Compact.

    A GSM SIM is a GSM SIM (granted, their are different manufacturers, capacities, etc).

    Mail queues if the Blackberry is unreachable. Otherwise, you'd lose email any time you lost signal or turned your Blackberry (or wireless) off. You can easily verify this.

    I don't think you do. I believe that this post is limited to GSM devices.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Hot Swapping: SIM to Berry to Razr and back

    I have the black berry pearl and 8700g and Im not able to load any software to it using the connection manager software that came with it. I know that there is something I need to setup other that connecting the unit. Im using my laptop with xp home. The manager detects the unit but i cant do anything else. Any ideas?
