i just got my 7520 this week and now i swap the sim in and out of the i860 that i have when i need bluetooth [golf, beach] or i need to take down addresses and do the other PDA functions.
i do miss the i860 sometimes though - the camera function, and especially text messaging aren't on the blackberry. the i860 is a lot smaller in your pocket, too. the blackberry doesn't recognize phone numbers saved on the i860 sim, so those all have to be loaded - which is easy with outlook.
some advice - DO NOT put another sim card into your i860 when you take it out.... all of my pictures, text messages, datebook entries, recent calls, etc were deleted when i put somebody else's sim in there. also, when you put your sim into the blackberry, it takes like 5 minutes to load every single time, which gets annoying. i think that if people send you text messages when your sim is in the blackberry, you never receive those - even when you put the sim in the i860.
other than that, having both phones is really the best of both worlds - until blackberries get text messaging and a camera.
