I currently have an SPV M5000 with 3G SIM, I want to obtain an SPV 600 as I really need a phone sized phone at times!!! Will Orange allow me to request a GSM SIM if I tell them I'm keeping the M5000 as I will swap SIM's. The M5000 during my working day and the C600 during weekends. I'm 6 months into contract so getting out of contract isn't an option.

I've heard it may be possible to have 2 SIM's with the same number, can one be GSM and the other 3G.

Whats the best way of approaching Orange on this.

Regards,
Mike

your USIM (3g sim) will work in the c600, no need for a second sim.

motty is correct - however if you dont want the hassle of switching SIM everytime you want to change phone, I believe that O offer a dual-sim (2 sims, one number) -- however I believe this is only for Business and/or Corporate users currently.

Worth giving them a call tho.
