Post 2 BB's on one BIS

Please Login to Remove!

I am a Cingular customer on BIS. I am considering an 8700 to use for work and keep my 7100v (unlocked) for weekends and international travel to use as a local phone.

What I am wondering is if I can keep both BB's on my account and then be able to switch back and forth without alot of hassle. Just switching SIM cards would be ideal.

I searched the forum and saw some info on doing something similar but on a BES.

Does anyone have any ideas if this is possible?

Thanks...

Yes, it is possible. I own 3 BlackBerry devices, and can switch at will on T-Mobile BIS. I switch the SIM, open the BIS setup icon on my device, and am prompted to switch PIN's. At that point, I receive 3 messages from the server indicating that I will begin receiving mail on my 3 accounts in 20 minutes.

Thanks for the quick reply. Does it cost you any additional $$ to do this?

None at all. It is completely transparent to the provider. They do not care what device your SIM is in.
