Default Anyone switching back and forth between BB and iPhone.

Please Login to Remove!

I've been scared off thusfar of trying the iPhone because I don't like the iTunes integration and inability to just swap out SIM cards and be up and running like with every other GSM handset out there. I know you can use the iPhone SIM in other phones, but does anyone go back and forth between a BB and an iPhone, and if so, how painful is the reactivation and change in data plans to handle the different handsets?

Default I did

I had an iPhone and switched the SIM between that and my 88xx series BlackBerry several times over a 2 month period. Granted, at the time I was using Cincinnati Bell. I had a BlackBerry plan on CinBell, and just popped the sim into the iPhone and was off and running (unlocked/Jailbroken 1.1.1). Later, I took a collegues SIM that was still active from a BB plan on CinBell, and just left it in the iPhone. Everything worked (of course, I didn't use visual voice mail). I had good EDGE coverage.

Thanks. I'm on AT&T so am not plan on unlocking, but maybe Jailbreaking. The more I think about it, the more I'll probably end up with an iPod Touch and keep my BB.
