    Greetings all,

    I currently have an i530 that is provided to me by my workplace.
    If I wanted to buy either an i730 or i830 on my own to use
    instead of the i530, would I be able to simply swap the SIM card
    from the i530 into the new phone? Reason I ask is because I
    want to retain the old phone number and don't want to modify the
    billing in any way. It would be preferrable if I didn't even
    have to notify my job of the change in hardware at all. Is this
    possible?

    Also, what software would I need to upload custom .wav tones and
    custom wallpapers to the phone (provided of course I buy the USB
    data cable)?

    Thanks!

    I did exactly that (530 to an 830).
    Some Nextel drones will tell you that simply swapping the SIM card won't work,
    but it will. I've done it.

    However, it is suggested that you switch the IMEI on record to the 830's eventually.
    There are possible support/service issues if you don't.

    You will need WebJAL or similar to do what you want. Go to www.hofoufn.com
    It is a subscription site, but it's cheap and there is TONS of information and downloads
    making it WELL worth it.
