    So I just bought a 64 GB space gray SE off of Swappa for $300 with the intention of swapping phones while I'm at work and doing National Guard stuff. My reasoning being that my first night back to work I almost dropped my phone out of my pocket trying to pick something up off the floor. The next instance being I went to boost a patient up in bed and could feel my phone in my scrubs pocket between the bed and me. The only pocket on my Guard uniform that fits my 7P is my trouser pocket and I have a tendency, gosh knows how, to forget it's in my pocket before sitting down.

    We can have our phones in our scrub pocket or we can leave them in the break room but I have an insanely wild and sweet autistic 7 year old and need my phone on me for emergencies. I'd prefer the SE so I can put it in my pants pocket rather than the scrub pocket on my tops, which is why I bought it in the first place.

    Does anyone else use a smaller phone for work then swap back to their 7P for recreational/at home use, or am I just crazy?

    The SE should be here Wednesday or Thursday.

    You're not crazy. You have a particular set of circumstances and need to work around/within them. It sounds like you have a workable plan, so give it a try.

    Through the magic of voIP apps, VZW Messages+, etc, I actually make use of 3 or 4 devices in a given day. I have a 7+ in the car, a 7 at my desk, a Pixel in my coat pocket. I get the same notifications, same calls on all of them. I subscribe to a bunch of tablet service at $10/month, then use those sim cards in these phones. Have been doing that for several years, can't go back. One of the benefits is that I never run out of battery.

    I bought the IPhone SE after having an 6s, no swapping, just so happy with the SE, so I keep it as my daily driver

    Haha. I don't want that to happen. I'm excited about the small size. But I love love love my 7 Plus!

    I really enjoyed my SE. It's such a convenient size. Plus, it can stand on its own that make use of certain apps I have. However, I stopped using it simply because the Touch ID is too slow, and I missed the 3D Force capability.

    Felloffthetruck is just a natural born bully living on a beach somewhere with his giant horse dogs plotting my doom.

    I'm stoked about two phones. I only had buyers remorse for about 30 seconds until I saw Truck's awe and envy.

    Why not spend that money on an Apple Watch if you don't already have one. If your job has wifi your notifications and calls will be forwarded to your device throughout the building. Then you can leave your phone in the break room and still be connected in case of emergency. No longer will you need to switch phones out daily, which is a little bit much. But to each their own.

    I definitely considered the Apple Watch, but the Wifi at work is horrid and I'm not good at keeping the darn thing on. I've tried a watch, and I'm just not a watch person, and it wouldn't be a good fit.

    Not really, I have my personal iPhone 7 Plus, and my work issued Samsung Galaxy S7 edge that I carry during work. I used to swap phones regularly, but it got to be too much of a hassle. I see you mention "National Guard," and "scrubs," are you a 68W?

    Nooo. Color deficiency put a halt to that dream. I work in a hospital on the civilian side and do Human Resources on the Guard side.

    I don't think I'll be too terrorized by having to swap phones. I only work three days a week, 12 hour shifts. Then I only do Guard 1-2 weekends a month. The majority will be spent on my 7 Plus, but the SE will definitely get some use.

    Gotcha! What state are you with if you don't mind me asking?
    The great thing about iOS is you could just back up and restore through iTunes prior to switching devices and have everything on your phone. That's what I did prior to going on vacation in Europe when I used my unlocked iPhone 5 and not my iPhone 6S.
    BTW I'm jealous of your work week, I'd love to work three 12 hour shifts a week!

    If the wifi isn't good then that may cancel that as an option. But I will say, I too wasn't a watch person prior to the Apple Watch. Now I am, lol. It really is a helpful product. I leave my phone at my desk much of the day and I don't feel like I'm missing anything. I can still read and respond to my texts and I can answer calls if they are really important. It's very helpful. Too bad the wifi at your job isn't great. Because the Watch is what I use for your very reasons for using a second device.

    Yeah, Target had series 1 watches on Black Friday and I fretted forever about it. I got a more than fair deal on this SE, so I'm pretty stoked. I'll see how it goes and if I can't deal I'll probably go for a watch.

    The WiFi is consistent on one floor, but I float to so many departments on any given night, and have never gotten consistent or decent WiFi on other floors. You'd think being a multi billion dollar hospital complex that they could figure out the WiFi. I recently found out we get our WiFi from Verizon through one of our HIT emails. The mind blowing thing is we have portable work stations that use the WiFi and they work like a charm. Maybe the confidential WiFi is where it's at. The guest WiFi for sure doesn't do it's job. It's one of the number one complaints I get from patients depending on what floor I'm on. I doubt patients staying on the intermediate or intensive care units need WiFi but I know people recovering from surgery or staying with a long term illness would really like to have something to pass the time besides the television.

    No. Think our highest is 80 MPH, and they just changed that about a year ago. I was recently at Fort Knox and the speed limits off post were mind blowing for me. I think the highest was 65 the whole time I was there.

    This thread makes me feel better! I have a 7p and a 7. I don't switch every day but the smaller phone is convenient sometimes. I also have a Moto Z for my work phone. Just upgraded my mom to a 7 so I will have a spare 6s too lol
