Sometimes people mistake unlimited browsing with unlimited Data. On your regular cellphone, unlimited data only covers the browser. In most cases there is no such thing as unlimited data anymore for a smartphone which. So as far as I know, you would not be able to use the data unless you add a smartphone data option onto your plan.
The way data works would be standard across the packages from your carrier.. however Blackberry users will have to pay an extra monthly fee for their extra services, which would be a waste of money for an Apple iPhone user who does not need to pay anything extra to the carrier for specific services (The optional MobileMe fees are paid to Apple, who I presume own them)
My carrier offers 1GB of data for those on Apple plans, rather than the standard 500MB.
So to summarise, swap SIM cards all you like, the data should work. Just be aware of the extras in the contract that you might be paying unnecessarily.
