    Anyone aware of any complication between constantly switching sims from one phone to the next.

    I ordered an 8+, which i plan to use during the colder seasons, but i also want to use an SE during the summer months with shorts seasons, and i will be buying that off-contract.

    I guess keeping the phones in sync with each other could be an added complication, but that would only be twice a year (beginning of summer - end of summer).

    Also, if you have an Apple Watch, you'd have to pair/un-pair it to each phone, but then that's also a twice a year thing too.

    Maybe some apps that you use work best with a plus phone and not so great with the SE ... but that's a stretch.

    Only complication is having to reenter passwords and emails after restoring the phones from a backup.

    Lol, I thought by constantly, you meant daily. I think iMessage issues may pop out, too, if you swap out SIMs that often.

    Once a month or longer should be fine as long as you don't need to keep app data in sync.

    If you restore from iTunes encrypted backup, you don't have to.
