Default Using a Blackberry with 2 service providers

Please Login to Remove!

Guys,
Here is the scenario;
I have just bought a new unlocked BB Torch
I live in Malaysia
I work in Africa
I travel to the UK 3 to 4 times a year
My Question;
I will be mainly using my BB in Malaysia with my Malay SIM card, but when I travel back and forward to work I will be using my o2 UK SIM card as my Malay card does not work overseas, can i register the phone with 2 different service providers i.e. o2 and DiGi (Malay service provider) so that when ever i swap SIM cards the phone will automatically start working with that service provider????

A blackberry can only be registered with one BIS account at a time.
But for voice and sms, you can swap sims no problem.

So would that mean that I would have to cancel my BIS account with say the Malay service provider everytime I travel so that I can use the new service provider or could I say have the BB registered with the o2 service provider for email and use my Maylay sim for calls when I am in Malaysia but still be able to get my emails on the BB from o2??
