Question,

Is it possible to switch between iPhones?

I own a 6+ but may want to use the smaller 5s on workouts and runs. Can I just pop out the SIM card and use it between both devices as I want to? Is it as easy as just popping it out and putting in the other phone?

Just curious if there would be any issues...thanks.

But also best to avoid constantly removing and inserting the sim. There's only a limited number of insertions before you damage the pins.

If you do this, using 1 SIM with 2 iPhones, will it cause texting and other programs to be out of sync? Or will the "offline" phone catch up once then SIM is back in it? I'm interested as long as both are basically identical with respect to programs, voicemail, text, and so on when I pick each one up.

You can have the same apps etc but texts/calls will only appear on the phone that received them.

Will be interesting to see how it works, because iMessage will work via WiFi when the SIM card isn't installed... but the phone's identify is by phone number. I think that some things might get out of sync like that but in general it should work if you are careful. You may want to limit the things you do on one of the phones.
