PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, this is fascinating. There have been rumours going around for a while now that Apple is working with Gemalto on an integrated sim card, allowing customers to choose their own carrier and then activate the phone through Apple. European mobile phone carriers aren't particularly pleased with this.

I've NEVER experienced what you're talking about with Bell/Telus when switching phones mid contract.

I had gone through about 10 phones on the CDMA network. You can call into 611 and a rep will swap it (free, if you sweet talk them). They also have an online site to do it - but it costs $10.

It still sucks, but you're by no means locked to a single phone for your contract.
