    Hey guys, how easy, hard, convenient or not is it to swap sim cards between 2 BB10 Devices?

    I have a Z10 but want a Q10, however don't want another number/plan.

    If I swap sim from one to another, what happens with my BBM account and contacts?

    Same question on emails... if I have emails set up on both phones, will the one without the sim keep updated if I leave on and on Wifi?

    Has anyone tried this? Any input, suggestions, warnings when doing this would be greatly appreciated!!

    As far as email yes your email will still populate on the device not using the sim as long as it is one wifi.
    For the BBM, it gets a bit more complicated, you can switch BBM from one device to another, provided same BBID is used on both. But, there is/was a limit of how many device switches you can do with bbm...I believe it was ten a year.

    If this has changed can someone correct me...

    So, I can't jump back and forth from phones logging in with my BBM user ID all I want?... I would imagine it possible only it would only work on the phone I signed into last... ? Chat history would be all over the place...

    I'm pretty sure it's not a limit of switches but a limit of number of actual devices in a year.

    Pretty sure you can switch between two as often as you'd like.

    At least I hope!

    I don't know anything about limit to how much you can switch between devices since I'm relatively new to BlackBerry but I switch between my z10 and q10 quite a bit and haven't had issues.

    You cant use the same ID on more than (I think) 17 different BlackBerry devices in one year.

    Days at work I'd much rather be wielding a Q10. I'm not going to be gaming or instagramming much and need to pop out quick messages.

    I love my Z10 on other days however as I love screen real estate.

    I'm sure I'd leave a puddle if I got my hands on a Z30 or the next all touch device they have planned (not the Z5 that thing is horrendous as ****)

    No limits. Same plan, same BBID, no problem. I do it daily. No worries there.
