    I mean swapping SIMs in and out. I'm a little frustrated with the battery life and would like something basic for when I know I'm not going to need all the goodness (out on a hike, etc. though it's hard to imagine not wanting all the goodness anytime.)

    Anyone have suggestions for a good second? Thanks!

    I use my 8525 for internet sharing. When im at work, it really comes in handy to have the internet sharing handy.

    I tried my SIM card in some crappy old Nokia phone just for the hell of it and it worked fine.

    Not Mine

    I tried my iphone 3G sim in 3 of my other unlocked phones and the sim does not work, wish it would just for other times when not wanting to carry the iphone around.

    Not in Canada here and I had the same problem as the other posters...SIM would not work in my old iPhone.

    Ah well. Bummer.
