    I quite new to iPhone so bear with me if this has been asked before.

    I will go on holiday next week. So I will be using another sim card.

    It will be ideal that I can keep my "profile" (all my contacts, settings, apps) then create a new "profile" for the new sim card. So when I'm back from my holiday I can restore my old "profile" and get back all my configurations.

    I know there is backup feature from iTunes, so I assumed I can restore it to that "backup" when I'm back. The problem is I will be using the same laptop. So no idea how to create a new profile and hopefully can keep my old profile or not screwing up the existing backup/profile.

    As far as I know your stuff (contacts, apps, files...) does not depend on your sim card.

    You can switch sim cards without encountering problems, except for mobile data settings and such perhaps.

    Phone info isn't stored on the SIM like that, and the iPhone doesn't have "profiles"; you'll be fine.
