    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking at upgrading my i850 to the BlackBerry 7100i, if I did this would it be possible for me to switch the SIM chips back and forth without losing things like pictures and such in case I didn't want to carry the BlackBerry?

    Also how does every one like the 7100i? I've been to every imaginable Nextel store in my area, including a corporate store and several reps without being able to actually use one, they only had the dummy.

    Thanks for your help!

    You should be able to use the same SIM chip...you shouldn't lose any information but I am not sure if the 7100i will load images from the chip or not.

    I used a 7100t on T-Mobile and now use the 7130e with Sprint and I am quite happy!

    I picked up the BlackBerry today, and so far I absolutely love it. I will admit though, I'm a geek. But being a geek I've found that using it out of the box is somewhat difficult, which is ok for me, but I could see it as a huge problem for the average user.

    I ended up just adding a second line to my account (bringing my own personal number of lines with Sprint/Nextel to 4 :loony: , that'll go over well with my parents :cool:) and changing my Nextel National Power 1000 to the new Fair and Flexible Families 1400. Which should also help save some money for me. I am however liking the BlackBerry a lot so far! :biggrin:
