  • 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.

      I got mine from china yesterday and love it! I now have an unlocked phone running a vodafone and a talkline chip, neither of which are blessed by ATT
      Love the chance to divert calls to the other chip then swich over!
      Please know that if your iphone is not unlocked, you will not be able to use a sim card other than an allowed one. On my iphone 4 i was not able to use two t-mobile chips. Only one

      I have att and tmobile. I use t mobile for work and att for personel. Only problem is u can't have everything work on both sim card. For example. I use t mobile in sim 1 and set all apn setting and everything works but when I go to sim 2(att) phone works but no 3G. You have to change apn setting for it to work. If you want FaceTime it will not work. I wish u could set it up with dual everything.

      just ordered mine from here let you you how I get on with it. Needed it since I'm doing a ski season in france, and I like the fact that I don't need to hunt down a microsim with this one.

      I have had mine for about two months now, both for the 3G and for the four.
      The chip holder is a great thing, unless the one you get is preset for the external (second) chip. That caused a few problems for me, but is great to have in Europe!

      Can you see where the volume buttons are? They are quite hard to reach if you have thicker fingers. I got the old clear plastic case, and have yet to spray paint it
      I am not all into asthetics, as long as it works!

      anybody tried to fit this into Mophie Power case ?
    1. unklbyl's Avatar

      Yeah, I did, and took the mophie apart, cut out a slot for the external chip, and glued it back together. Gotta be careful putting the iphone INTO the mophie because the film is so thin and the chip is so thick in comparison. Cutting the mophie pack for thr iphone 3 was easier!

      The best solution will be Dual Standby SIM Power pack

      I saw another product on the Simore website. Not exaxtly the same but the main advantage is that you can use 2 SIM cards (micro SIM and SIM standard format) and have two numbers active at the same time.
      With this dual SIM card adapter you can make and receive calls on both SIM cards simultaneously with your iPhone4.
      For the price and how to buy it, you have all the information on their website :

      I have had it on my 4S for about a half a year, and it works like a charm! Getting it set up at first is a bit of a pain, but patience is needed, (didn't have much of it at the time), but i have used it in USA, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, and France. Yes, i do have a prepaid chip for each country. I love it. I do NOT have a CDMA iphone.
      Phone obviously does have to be JB!
      Any questions, please ask.
