    I've used several Android devices over the years with the S8+ being the last. Using the X now, and have had every gen iPhone except SE and 5C. I like the integration iOS provides with all my other Apple products, plus I love my Apple Watch.

    With that being said I've been toying around with either adding a second line or going with another provider to get an Android phone as well. Switching sims is still a bit of a hassle sometimes with iMessage and FaceTime.

    I do enjoy both OSes, it's just hard to justify the price b/c all the Android phones I'm interested in are pricey, plus the additional plan.
    I bounce between IOS and Android all the time wish they could combine somehow.

    How do you guys handle texting? Easier to switch back and forth when not signed into iMessage.

    I always wondered the same thing and then what’s the point of using an iPhone if you can’t enable iMessage?

    I use iPhone on a primary line and Android on a secondary line (typically for work or when calling businesses/individuals to whom I don't wish to reveal my "real" number), instead of switching back and forth between the two systems on my primary line.

    Theoretically as long as you turn off both FaceTime and iMessage on the iPhone before switching the SIM card it shouldn't be an issue anymore. It's much better than it used to be. However, I do have one contact for some reason that we both have to delete our message threads on our iPhones for normal sms to work on my Android phones.

    This is what I do.. although I haven't had any issues doing it (even with one contact). I just switch it off before I go back to the Android phone.
