Default BlackBerry SIM in RAZR

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry if this question has been addressed elsewhere - I should know the answer but don't.

If I take my data plan enabled SIM from my BB and stick it in a non-BB device, like a RAZR, what happens to my e-mail? Does it queue up and push down when the SIM gets put back in my BB?

I'd like to use just a simple (small) phone on the weekends.

Thoughts?

Thanks

That is correct. The email is tied to the handheld, not the SIM card, so when the sim card is placed into another phone, including another BlackBerry, the email will not work. The messages will store on the network until the blackberry is back on line.

The razr is a great weekend phone and I use it too, My question is, are we getting chaged for data on the razr if we have an unlimited berry plan?

Messages will pend for 7 days to reach the BlackBerry. After 7 days the messages are removed from the wireless network and never delivered to the BlackBerry.

So, pull the SIM out all you want, but try to put it back in once every 7 days so that you don't miss any email

good question. I'd like to know the answer. (my gut tells me no, and you are in the clear).

My understanding is that the Blackberry plan is unique to Blackberry devices. A Razor or non-BB phone would need a "Media" plan. I believe you will get charged for casual usage on the Razor.

How long do messages pend for redirector? It seems temperamental to me, sometimes they queue, sometimes redirector says "refused by handheld".

A friend of mine puts his sim in a treo and he has yet to be charged.

I too will be using a Razr for a phone on weekends. It seems to me that putting the sim in a razr and switching back between devices will scratch the chip. How hardy are these sim cards?

I know that. But it was also my understanding that often the $50 BB plan is a super-set of functions that may include access points convered in the basic $40 PDA data plans. But that one might need to call a CS rep to get WAPs or gateways added to your BB plan to use a regular PDA.

I have read this on the internet, and it sounds plausible, but I would like some confirmation, of course.

This is an important question, does anybody know the answer?

I don't know about the razr, but the bb has a zero-insertion-force type setup that shouldn't put stress on the card. As for the contacts, they are the same kind used on smart cards and I used one of those r
3-5 times a day through several years of college with no probs. I think it should be fairly safe to move.

. . . it's not so much of the SIM card that will get stressed, it's the SIM card holder that's bound to break on the BB from the switching. . . once you break that hinge, your BB's screwed. may I suggest adding a line for your Razr and forward calls from BB to Razr when ever you want.
