    I love my iPhone, but get the android itch every once in a while.

    I would like to pick up a Note 5, but would like to be able to switch sim cards back and forth so I can use both phones when I want.

    Are sim cards swappable between iPhone 6plus and Note 5?

    Thx!

    I believe they both use the ridiculous tiny micro SIM standard so you should be good to go. Someone who actually owns both should confirm this though haha..

    You might have to disable iMessage every time you switch to Android.

    Or just never re-link the phone number to iMessage so iMessage and text conversations are handled differently. While it removes the fall-back of sending a message to someone as an iMessage, it also removes the headache of pulling your number from iMessage every time you switch phones.

    I have a Verizon Note 5 and iPhone 6 Plus. They are both awesome phones. I switch between the 2 phones all the time.
    Both sim cards and nano cards so it is fairly easy to switch.
    Just make sure you log out of iMessages when switching between the 6 Plus and any Android phone.
