I'm currently using a nano-SIM, but I also own a micro-SIM that I've used before. I switched the SIM on my line myself via Self Serve.

Am I able to go back and forth between these SIMs as much as I like?

The SIM Card that is not in use has to be activated withing a certain amount of time again (I think 3 months) or you won't be able to switch. Other than that You can switch as much as you want.
You can buy an adapter to make your nano in to the lager sizes that would make it easier if your going to be switching phones a fair amount.

Have no worries Kid, my phone shrine is alive and well. Every device has a spot for itself on a nice felt covering with dedicated chargers, microfiber cloths and replacement matte screen protectors every week.....

LOL, seriously though, yeah, I take great care of my devices and clean 'em out at least once a week, out of their case and everything. That must be why I was always successful selling them down the road!

You sound like you treat your devices exactly like me, glad to know I'm not the only one that treats my phones & tablets like they are my first born child lol

Well, our phones have basically become an extension of ourselves, so let's call this "extended personal hygiene" lol!

Hehe, I don't keep my devices long enough to have to take any special care. I just don't throw them around and keep nothing else in my front pocket.

Most of my devices go naked as well and I don't scratch them. I don't like the added bulk and I don't work in a place where I need protection from equipment/dirt/grease/etc. so I'm good.

I'm a machinist, so case/screen protection is mandatory! I also keep it in an otherwise empty pocket to avoid contact with keys and coins. But I'm kind of a protection freak, even if I keep a device for a month, I'll get everything under the sun to protect it.
