Default One hand-set, multiple BES SIM on same email address

Please Login to Remove!

As I'm travelling and spending time accross two locations (Europ and Asia) I have two BB : two handsets, two SIMs, two carrier but one mail account.
I want to keep only one handset, but switch SIMs depending on wether I'm in Europ or Asia.
I've tried this when arriving in Asia and receiving my Asia BB : I put the Europ SIM into the Asia handset and it works for phone call and for data. The route was still a European one.
Now I've reseted my Europ handset (cause bether model thant the Asian one) and request my company to set it up with Asia SIM and BB plan. The route is now targetting Hong kong I guess.
My question: I'll travel to Europ in a couple of weeks and I'd like to know wether it will still work if I put my Europ SIM into the handset (for data and mail).
And wether it will be charge as International or roaming as the route (but not the carrier as my Europ SIM will connect to Europ network) will still be in Asia.
Any idea ?
Info: the mail address remains the same but I don't know wether the password is per SIM (it seems not as my first experiment worked).

BB devices use the PIN to track the BES account - SIM is not tracked.

Bottom line - your PIN can only be active on one BES account.
