Question Need creative suggestions

Please Login to Remove!

8700c locked on Cingular (I know I can get it unlocked easy enough)

Cingular has great service at home but lousy reception at job. Best carrier in job area is Verizon

Additional problem:
No carrier has outstanding, always reliable service in hospitals. This necessitates need for old fashioned pager.

I want to carry as few electronic devices as possible. I wish I could just swap SIMS (one from Cingular and one from Verizon), but I know that can't be done even if the 2 carriers were on same type of network.

Are there any other creative options?

Incidentally, Verizon's CDMA network doesn't use SIMs.
