Both my Razr V3 and the 8700 will both be Cingular. Is there any downside to switching the sim back and forth? I don't think call history is saved to the SIM and that may be one disadvantage. Any other disadvantage to switching the sim card between the 8700C and a Cingular Razr?
Cingular stores happily replace the sim card for free if it stops working so wear and tear on it should not be an issue.
I did the same thing months ago, went from a Razr to the blackberry both on Cingular. About the only issue I had was getting my data service working first time I put the SIMM in the BB. If that happens call Cingular BB support not the normal 800 number, at 800-304-3044. And here is the link for Cingular to set up BIS if you need to do that. http://www.cingular.com/midtolarge/blackberry
As far as the SIMM goes, yeah it might get worn out going back and forth. I had two razrs silver and black and used to switch back and forth. The simm holder in the razr is pretty tight and eventually might cause some damage to the SIMM. If you get SIMM errors don't wait, take it to Cingular so that they can replace it. If you wait too long (I did) the SIMM cannot be read anymore, and they will replace it, but they will not be able to move any of your saved contacts to the new one.
