Default Dual Sim holder in 7100t

Please Login to Remove!

Hi - very new to the Blackberry forum but I have a question. I am in Australia and am tied to an Optus phone contract through work, however, Optus cannot provide data and voice on my Blackberry only data but Telstra can do both - but I can't switch my voice calls to Telstra as we have a deal through work.

This will mean that I have to have my email/data on my Blackberry and keep my phone for voice calls (both on Optus) - not ideal and defeats the object of having 1 thing to do both.

My main question is:

Can I get a dual sim card holder for my 7100t and run Optus for my voice calls (using my work sim card) and Telstra (buying a prepaid/top up sim) for my email and voice account? I can then forward any calls from my Optus sim to the Telstra one and then not need to carry around both handsets.

Does anyone have any good ideas of how to get around this problem?
