What happens if I swap phones with my wife?

My wife is driving to SoCal this weekend and needs turn-by-turn GPS. She has a Cliq (1.5) and i have a G1 (1.6). Here is my question: If we swap our sim card for the weekend, and then swap back on Tuesday, will we still have our original settings or will we mess up settings/preferences by doing this?



BTW. You can guarantee the Cliq will get the awaited 2.1 update the day after my wife gets back. It's like rain after you wash your car.

Wild guess here but you will probably have each others phones then.

in all seriousness your settings are stored on the phone not the sim card. The sim card is just your phone number..

So if you move your sim card to her phone you will still see her email facebook and whatever else she has set up but you will get your calls and texts on her phone, when you move your card back those texts and calls will stay logged on her phone and will not move to yours.
