Default Switching between prepaid and contract service

Please Login to Remove!

I am leaving next week for a trip to Australia. I have an unlocked 7100V and my question is, If I have an unlimited international data plan w/Cingular (non-BES), could I get my e-mail etc (2-3 times per day) with that SIM and then swap it out and use a local prepaid SIM for voice. That way I can get the best of both worlds. My concern is that somewhere along the way it will get screwed up and I will not be able to get my mail.

Has anyone had any luck with this idea?

Any help is appreciated.

You shouldn't have any problem, as long as you don't brake a SIM doing all that swapping

That is what I figured, but was looking to verify first...These things really are crackberries!

you should just buy an inexpensive unlocked phone to use for the voice service while your there. itll save you a lot of the trouble.
