If they're both on the same network, you just switch SIM cards around. If not, you'd have to unlock the phone before you could do that.
Yeah, but my personal phone isn't a smartphone, so it doesn't have a data plan or anything. I need to find a way to switch the SIM cards without my personal phone getting charged for the data.

In other parts of the world, there are dual-SIM phones, so you can have two numbers on one phone. They're not popular in the West because the business model here is different, and no operator wants to subsidise a phone used by a different operator... but I rather like the idea of a dual-SIM to manage work/private lines and hope they eventually make it to our shores in a good smartphone.
Yeah, this sounds awesome. I was trying to figure out if there was a way I could just get all my personal calls/texts forwarded to my new number.
