    I am wondering if an unlocked android phone could access the sim card of a different phone using remote sim mode. I am a young android developer, but I am reluctant to buy an android phone because of the required data plans (which I don't need - I have enough WiFi access to make do.) I have a Samsung Solstice 2 under contract with AT&T. If I bought an unlocked Nexus S, could I make calls/text through the SIM card of the Solstice by turning on Remote SIM Mode on the Solstice? And would this result in AT&T slapping a data plan on my phone bill?

    While it may seem silly, keep in mind that I would be using the Nexus S for app development. This could allow me to more fully test my applications without having to pay for a data plan.

    Nope. The device has to support remote SIM mode which is really intended for tings such as car kits. The device should list RSAP support if it's possible.

    You can always move the SIM when testing.
