Default swapping from blackberry to blackberry.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys,

how easy is it or is it possible to be able to swap your sim from blackberry to blackberry on a day to day basis if you wanted to?

Is this possible?

Cheers
Chris

It's possible, but not what I would consider easy.

Default Re: swapping from blackberry to blackberry.

To piggyback on what penguin said above, if you wanted email and RIM services you would need to make sure you edit your BIS account with the new IMEI and PIN.

If you were a BBM user, all of your BBM contacts would be confused since each device has its own different and unique PIN.

You would need to resend service books and might even have your carrier make changes so you get the proper services. Just some of the problems I would foresee.

And to repeat the above - doable, but not easy and certainly not painless.
