The SIMPLE IRA is yours to keep. All contributions are 100% vested at the time they are made. As far as future contributions, since you are "eligible" for a 401k Plan, you cannot make deductions to a Traidtional IRA that will be eligible for tax deductions unless your income is below certain levels depending on your filing status. Your best bet is to contribute to teh 401k at least as much as the employer match.
You may also want to consider converting the old SIMPLE to a Roth and making contributions to the ROTH after you've contribute to the 401k.
