My employer has installed a Blackberry server and has encouraged many
of us to move to a RIM device. The Nextel 7510 is an approved option
but I have some hesitation, maybe you folks can shed some light:

1. My biggest issue is size and expense. I do alot of outdoor
recreational activities and would hate to damage it. I would be GREAT
if I could have two phones with the same number (obviously use only
one at a time)? Maybe pull the SIM out of one to put in the other? I
would use the 7510 for daily business use but fall back on my i90 for
other outdoor and personal activities.
2. The thing is huge and most have informed me that I would need to
use the earbud. Sounds like a real pain.

Any suggestions or comments would be welcomed. I have been a Nextel
customer for over 5 years and don't want to be tethered by a color-tv
hanging on my side.

Thanks for any and all info!

When my Black Berry 7510 needed to be replaced my friend lent me his old
Nextel phone. I think it was an i60C... but don't remember. I swapped out
the sim card and it worked with no problem but my phone book was not
available. I was able to make and receive phone calls though, which is
probably what you're most concerned with. In fact I was thinking doing the
same thing just in case I ever need to send it back again I have a backup
phone.
