    Hey -

    I have an unlocked Storm 2 on Verizon, and I just bought a Vodafone (German) SIM pre-paid card.

    I had heard that, to switch between the German number and the US number, I have to go into options > mobile network and turn on or off the data, and choose GSM or Global settings, depending on which side I want. The phone should automatically switch. However, this isn't working for me. It seems that as long as the Voda SIM is in the phone, it only recognizes the Voda account.

    I was hoping I wouldn't have to physically switch the SIM cards every time I want to check messages or e-mails and go between the two accounts. I've tried shutting off the phone and doing battery pulls, but as long as the Voda SIM is installed, that's all it sees.

    Does anyone know of a way to switch between accounts without having to pull out the SIM card each time?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    It has to be switched from global/umts to 2G and vice-versa

    Hmmm... my options in Mobile Network are "GSM/UMTS", "1XEV", and "Global". So which option do I use for each side?

    1XEV is for Verizon then you switch it to GSM/UMTS which then should give you option for 2G and that will be for any foreign sim card.

    Hey - thanks for your help. I'm in Germany currently. If I choose 2G, it searches for a CDMA network, and it's not going to find it over here. The only option is to choose Global, but that's not working. When the Voda card is inserted, it still won't allow me to access the Verizon side. Any other thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Did you reboot the device after switching to 2G? This is so it finds the Voda sim. Then you switch it back to 1 XEV and then reboot again and it should find the Verizon service.
