    Got an SE a few weeks ago, went straight to iOS 10 on it.

    Got a 6s plus on 9.0.2 jailbroken still.

    Been using SE 90% of the time, feels great in the hand and looks classy.

    But sometimes I have the urge to phablet it up, nevermind wanting my tweaks

    Just curious if any one else SIM swaps? Not a work phone and personal phone, but same line and a phone fetish?

    I went back and forth between a 6s and a 6s+ until I figured out which I wanted to be my daily driver. Only did it for like a week though

    I do it with iPhones and Android phones from time to time but never two iPhones.

    I did it all the time. No problems with it except I noticed after 4-5 times the little SIM door gets a "tiny" bit loose but caused no problem.

    I do the same exact thing. I swap my SIM card between my 6s and SE. I have iOS 10 PB on my 6s and 9.3.3 on my SE. Was using my 6s a lot testing out the PB, but lately I have been using my SE as I absolutely love how it feels in my hand.

    I almost lost my SIM when I was switching from my 6s to the SE. Thank goodness for my fiancée finding it though. But I've had no issues with the SIM trays. Although my 6s tray is a bit scratched up.

    I have done that. I have a 6s plus and a 6s. The plus is my daily driver but I switch when I feel the need for something smaller, and go with the 6s.

    Too much effort for me. I have 2 separate lines. iPhone 6 for personal use and Android for business use.

    I used to. It's a PITA though, especially when the phones are in tight cases. I ended up just putting the smaller "out playing" 5s on a cheap T-Mobile plan It's worth the $30 a month for me to just be able to grab whichever phone I want.

    Nope. I have separate SIM cards in my Galaxy S7 Edge, Moto X, and iPhone SE, but I only pay for service on my Galaxy S7 Edge. I get free service in the other two and just use Google Voice and Hangouts, so I get calls and texts on all of my devices, including my two iPads.

    Couldn't do it even if I wanted to. Have an Apple Watch. It is a hassle to unpair and re-pair. I supposed I just need to have two watches...

    I occasionally swap from my 6 Plus to an older 5 for when I'm spending lots of time outdoors, water parks, beach, etc., but probably only two or three times a year.

    I have a 6SPlus and an SE. I took the sim out of the 6SPlus and put it into the SE for daily pocket friendly use to work in tandem with my Apple Watch. I've not yet had a need to switch the sim back to the larger iPhone but I can't imagine that it wouldn't work if I did.

    I'm planning on getting a Samsung Note7 for my birthday to be a sort of pocket planner, which is what I'm using the 6S Plus for now. I was going to trade the 6SPlus in on AT&T Next for the Note7, but my husband heard of the probable BOGO deal on T-Mobile for the Note7 so now he wants to get us his-n-hers accounts on T-Mobile for the Notes.

    So the 6S Plus will likely stay in reserve until I want to upgrade on AT&T. The SE will be passed to family if Apple releases a new 4" model someday.

    I use to. Now I have 5 lines foe $140 on T-Mobile so I just bring whatever phone I want and don't worry about it. I do tend to move my main number between an iPhone and my S7 Edge though.
