    Yeah, if Im active or riding my bike I may use my 8700 instead of my 8300 for obvious reasons, the 8700 is tougher and rides better in the saddlebag

    I do, and it works really well. It’s a great way to enjoy the ability to switch phones when you want to.

    This is a great question, one that I asked myself a few years ago. The answer is no risk , you have nothing to worry about when switching sims. Just use a little caution, don’t rush it and you will be fine. I have switched a single sim card between as many as three different phones daily for many months. I have a large collection of “other” regulars (non-smart phones) that I enjoy using from time to time. Especially for the same reason as others here. There are times and places that I simply do not want to take my “best” BB out into. Like hiking on the weekends, I use an old RAZR V3, drop it in my pocket and not worry about it. Upon returning I simply remove the sim and install it back into my BB.

    I learned the problem with this is the two phones would then have identical sim chips in them. As your sim chip carries your personal account info with your carrier. If they were to issue two identical sims then there is the possibility that one could be given to a friend or family member which in turn would deny the carrier an opportunity to sell that person their own phone, and thus another activation and account for the carrier 2 would be lost.

    Hope these answers have helped.

    Cheers

    I swap sims for my Samsung T509 to use the very old feature that RIM decided to leave out on this phone. A video camera. One of my favorite things.
    Life is like a movie, you've sat through half of it and its sucked so far, it probably isn't gonna get great right at the end to make it all worthwhile. you shouldn't get blamed for walking out early

    Picked up a Nokia 1208 (couldn't find the 2610 I wanted) as a backup. I may switch the SIM to my other BB if I want to LOL

    I use my company's crappy Nextel I670. I just forward all my calls to it when i go to the beach or i go to one of NYC's crazy clubs. Once I get back home I immediately switch to my amazing curve.

    Nokia?

    What's a Nokia?

    I thought I knew my BlackBerry model history well, but I don't remember a Nokia? Hmmm.....

    I have a pbeurssionneasls kind of life. Swapping devices does not make practicle sense for me. My 8830 as become a swiss army knife like device for me. Just give me my BB and a roll of duct tape and I'll save the world.
