    Why not just use GoogleVoice?

    It will sort of work though... You would need to switch the cards each time you want to use it though if your Storm is on a contract plan with Att. Which would be a pain. But you could just go into a Att store and purchase a prepaid SIM.

    There's no way for your phone to be active on both numbers at the same time. That's why GoogleVoice would be perfect for you, one phone with many numbers.

    Is google voice a paid service?
    Well i would use the pre paid Sim at work but i rather not deal with work related phone calls at home.
    What do you think is best?

    All you need for GoogleVoice is a gmail account, but everything is free.

    Check out GoogleVoice and it's list of features, it might be the perfect thing for you.

    If you don't want to deal with work calls at home then having a prepaid SIM will work great for you. But...

    Your family would then need to contact you on your work SIM during the day then because you other SIM wouldn't be active. Also, having just the prepaid SIM would limit you to calls and texts, email, BBM, and other data applications would be unusable.

    I haven't tried GoogleVoice at all, but I would guess you can limit phone calls to certain times of the day. So your work calls would probably go to voicemail when your not working.

    I would give GoogleVoice a try first, it's free so you don't have much to lose. If you don't like it then you can look into a prepaid SIM. I just think the prepaid option would be very restrictive in a BlackBerry.

    I did the google voice account.I gotta say it worked out better than I had expected.The only thing that I guess is funny is the outgoing calls but way better than spending money on another SIM card.Now I have two numbers set up for different groups of people.
