    Eww, why would you want to? JK I could put my SIM card in my MOTO RAZR and my calls and voicemail would work fine. As far as the data goes, I belive you can use a BlackBerry data plan with an iPhone but you can't use an iPhone plan with a Berry. Not sure about that though.

    Yes, it will work. Someone did mention that after a few days they got a nastygram from AT&T, but I'm pretty sure the poster was crazy.

    They may have been telling the truth tho, I put my bold sim in my iphone 3G and I got an email saying that I didn't have an iphone data plan and may occur charges. Then I called tech support on an unrelatwd issue and they asked me if I had switched my sim card around recently.

    Poster wasn't crazy, but it's definitely not a "nastygram"

    It's just a text, or email, that states you're using an incorrect data plan and visual voicemail is not supported. If you use a BlackBerry Bold data plan in an iPhone 3G, you don't have to worry about any charges. Both plans include 3G and are the same price.

    data plan is $10 more on bb, essentially to cover for the bb only service like bbm. att support do see your shuffling sim around though and your account page may show iphone as the device. but you won't incur extra charge since bb data plan is more expansive but not vice visa.

    I wouldn't. Not sure about the billing side of it since I don't work in cc but the biggest problem we see in my dept is the system does a scan and sees you using an iPhone so it updates what your access points are. In this case since the iPhone doesn't do anything through MEdia net all of Media net and therefor your MMS get shut down. It's not a hard fix but you have to call cc so they can transfer you to data support and then they have to get a 3rd level tech on an IM program so they can manually update a back end system with your BlackBerry's IMEI number so it will open up the MEdia net stuff again.
