Default SIM card transfer?

Please Login to Remove!

The one thing that I really like about my wife's iPhone (AT&T) is that she can pull the SIM card out of it and seamlessly transfer it to a cheapo smaller phone that she carries when she goes running/mountain biking/whatever. I have two phones via Verizon: a Storm and a smaller phone (Juke). I carry the latter when I go running/riding/etc. But he difference is that I have two phone numbers while she only has one. Does Verizon offer any phones that I can put my Storm's SIM card into, or is this technology that Verizon simply doesn't permit? Any likelihood that this is coming down the pipe if it is not available now? If not, I will probably abandon my Storm in favor of an iPhone + a second compact phone later this year and drop one of my numbers. Thanks.

While in the the US Verizon does not make use of the SIM card as it is a CDMA device. It will only use the SIM while outside of the US
