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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Had a 1st gen. iPhone I swapped ou till I sold it. Soon, Bold will be primary and my curve will be back up!
