    I have a BB Storm1 on Vodafone Australia and I am looking at getting iphone 3gs also on Vodafone Australia. I want to keep both phones and switch my sim card between them both when I feel like it. Will this work for me even though I'm on Vodafone Australia and have an unlimited BB data plan?

    Thank you

    Vodafone in Australia is GSM or CDMA? Are you sure that the sim card that's
    in your phone is what the phone runs off of?

    Yeh, i pulled the sim card out and put the battery back in and after it booted up it has sos in the top right hand corner (where it usually has signal strength etc) and when i tried to make a call it says "Emergency Calls Only". When i opened the browser and tried to go to m.crackberry.com it said "The Browser cannot display the web page because the handheld does not contain a valid SIM card"

    Is that what you mean?

    I don't know if Vodafone is the official provider of the iPhone in Australia, but if they are then all you would have to do is switch your sim card and unlock the APN with the directions listed on the first page.

    If Vodafone is not the official provider then your phone would require to also be unlocked as well as the APN.

    Ok thanks.

    Not sure what you mean by Vodafone being the 'official provider of the iphone in Australia' though. Vodafone is one of the major mobile phone carriers and offers the iphone on various different plans as well as buying it outright through them. Not sure if that makes them an official provider though.

    So to be on the safe side should i just have the iphone unlocked by someone like Cellunlock and then unlock the APN via the instructions on the first side?

    Thanks for your help on this

    Nope since Vodafone is the provider for iphone you don't need to unlock the phone. All you need to do is the APN thing described in this thread.

    Awesome thanks very much for your help.

    I'm thinking of having it unlocked anyway because we travel a little bit internationally and i would like to be able to use it when we go away. Will this be ok if i did this as well as unlock the APN?

    There is a universal unlock software that unlocks the phone in less than a minute.

    Has anyone got this to work on a 3GS with the latest OS?

    I use to use this feature on my first 3GS, but after switching to the new 32GB 3GS, I've not be able to get it to work. I'm guessing the OS on the iPhone is not allowing it to work.

    Albeit, weird...

    Special thanks to Duvi for this:

    If you have wifi, it will be easier to to, but if you don't, you'll need to switch to the iPhone data plan until you can get the configuration.

    From your iPhone, just go to "http://www.unlockit.co.nz/unlockit/" and then click Continue. At this point, choose Custom APN and scroll down to "carrier". Choose "US - AT&T" and then click create profile. You can choose to add v3 Tethering + MMS. The tethering will work, not MMS. On the next screen, click 'Install" and you'll be all set after that. With wifi, you can do it with your BB data plan, without, you won't be able to until you change to iPhone data and then you can change back.

    This process created adds a WebClip to your home screen in which you can delete.

    The reason for this is because the iPhone 3GS + 3.0 doesn't have the APN filled in. This is to stop users from using the wrong data plan.

    I unlock it without the sim card in the phone and just use a Wi-Fi connection.
    Maybe that will help. Let us know.

    When you switch sims and go into your voicemail, you have to enter your
    voicemail password in order for the vvm screen to show up.

    should have said i have the old 2g iphone dont know if that makes a
    difference or not. i can go on my voicemail screen but nothing comes
    up about password. it says voicemail unavailable,unable to connect.
    i can call the phone and leave a message and its on my voicemail just
    not vvm

    The fact that it's the original iPhone might possibly have something to do with
    it. My only experience with switching sims on this plan are with a 3GS.

    i think that might be the problem,in looking back at other posts they all
    seem to have the 3gs. will keep trying its no big deal not to have vvm.
    thanks for the replies and help.

    Can anyone explain the benefits of doing this? Are you saving money?

    No, it's the same amount for each data plan. Thirty dollars.

    The benefit is for people such as myself who like to use a Blackberry one day
    and an iPhone another day. If we had an iPhone plan then we wouldn't be
    able to take advantage of the Blackberry features if we decided to put our
    sim card in it.

    However using a sim card with a Blackberry plan in an iPhone has its benefits
    because the iPhone works the way it was intended. The only thing that is
    lost is PUSH email and in some cases, visual voicemail.
