  • Utilitarian Dual SIM iPhone 4 Case



    This quirky-looking iPhone 4 case by USB Fever has one unique feature most other cases lack: a dual SIM card slot. For $30 you get a case, room for an additional SIM card, and a dual-SIM adapter. Once you have your piggy-backed SIM card attached, you can toggle between the two cards using the iPhone’s settings menu. Unfortunately you can’t use both SIM cards simultaneously, and when you switch from one SIM card to the other, it takes a few minutes for your iPhone to search for a signal. During this time you may get a “No SIM Card Installed” warning, but this will disappear after a minute or two. Not a deal-breaker compared to needing two phones on a long trip.

    This case isn’t the most attractive case out there (by far), but what it lacks in looks it makes up for in utility. The hassle of using more than one phone while traveling makes this case one to consider if you think you’ll be traveling internationally. Another bonus: no iPhone death grip problems, but all cases can of course make that claim.

      Oh yeah I just love buying stuff from HK. Maybe it'll show up in 60-90 days...or never.

      Get a U.S. distributor (or other nations) if you are serious about selling merchandise like this. I won't buy anything from HK.

      when we change the sim on iphone it takes about 20 sec to connect to network with other sim.
      why someone would wait 2 minutes when he can do that for 20 seconds.
      no need for this thing.

      Looks like a damn sexy and very functional case to me. I'd love to use my phone without a case at all (but as we all know that's a bad idea - it's mostly made of glass, no matter how strong). I love clear form fitting cases, and that this case adds such excellent functionality without adding much in the way of girth (it looks like less than one additional millimeter in thickness over similar snap on cases) this case is really no different from the InCase clear snap I received from the case program.

      I find it rather hard to believe that, that it cant support both sims at the same time. Heh, even thost China iphone knock offs, can support dual sims at the same time :P

      I think you're missing the point here buddy. First off, the iPhone 4 is the most attractive looking mobile device on the market. Period. Seccondly, this case is certianly not meant to improve the aesthetic value by any means, they wouldn't have made it clear if it was. It is purely a functionality improvement. It is quite an innovative idea if you ask me. If I traveled abroad frequently, this would definitely be in my arsenal.

      what can they do, stop people from making iPhone accessories?

      I would have two active iPhone acounts, on AT&T, in the U.S for U.S. use only. A personal phone and a business phone. This is a perfect deal except that I hope it would come in jet black so that you can't see the sim adapter.

      For anyone who has taken their phone apart, this looks pretty easy to hide this inside the phones back panel depending on how thick it is.

      I suppose the case should be in black... not 'revealing' transparent
