    Wow! an updated SIM adapter for 2 SIMs
    pity I have never heard of anyone getting one of these to work, but even if I did I don't think it would be worth me forking out €69 and hacking 2 SIMs to pieces just to avoid taking one out and replacing it with another.

    These things have been around for years.
    You have to cut your SIM down and on many forums over the years people have asked if they work.
    I have never seen anyone answer yes.
    I have seen many people say they will try it and report back.
    Without exception they have never reported back (either positively or negatively).
    You can drw your own conclusions.

    Seriously, how hard would it be to take one sim out and put another in?
    it takes like 5 seconds.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    It is not that easy to switch SIM card I would have thought, since we don't normally carry the SIM ejecting pin with us. Also, it is a plus point to be able to put both SIM in, rather than having the unused one outside the phone hence running the risk of losing it.

    Yah, I see the merit of this solution, if it works that is, and for people who need two cards.

    The question I have though is if the phone would ring when call comes in for both the number? I got the impression that only the active number will ring. This is in contrast to some dual SIM phone where the phone would both number could receive call.

    have a look at the video above, no trouble with the networks on it, 3G seems to work, for me no trouble also, this dual SIM is in my Iphone from more than 3 weeks now.

    What dual sim do you use on the Nokia?

    yes that's true for some ppl, in another hand I do not feel oblige to give any explaination to my mobile operator and not afraid on buying another SIM

    btw you can use recontruction pllastic frame delivered with the dual sim card, you return to original sim card size with the plastic+adhésive, you can see recontruction sim card on website

    ouuuu, I fear not my mobile operator, is that serious doctor

    You can always use a paper clip to remove the sim from your I phone

    yeah I have experienced myself in the past network problems and that's why I have chosen this platinum Dual SIM because it supports all networks CDMA, HSPDA,..... have a look at the description.
