Yes, of course I had to get one of these. The "trick" is that the SIM tray is NOT designed to be regularly popped (because Verizon doesn't want you swapping SIMs in and out, they want you to buy another line.)
I found something at Michael's Crafts which, when manipulated with a needle nosed pliers, can regularly be used as a "hook" to open that tray, and I've been swapping it in once or twice a week when I go to the pool.
The tool must be less than 0.5 mm thick. (And I actually drilled out a little the hole in the tray).

Popular Italian smartphone site Hdblog ran an enthusiastic test of the palm phone. Commenters were less convinced ;-)
Hey Admin: Why do we have to keep two profiles?
