    i would recommened to stay away from such simcards
    but if you have no other option i would go for this one over the other ones
    having the little chip on the underside is a great idea dont no why no one else thought of it first
    the little chip is the little [email protected]#ker that gets caught inside ppls phones like it did with mine
    having it on the inside stops this from happening

    Don't do it...I have several of these sitting around since the 1.1.2 days. I have a 3G iphone and if you pull on the tray wrong, the sim card pops out and get's stuck in the phone. It took me a half an hour and a slightly bent paper clip to fish it out. On the US 3G iphone, it comes up invalid SIM (using a T-Mobile sim)

    I got mine today. Ordered friday came on monday. Emailed the guy and asked him if it works, dude said 100%.

    Reality:
    Very easy to install as advertised. It also comes out easliy too if need to. Aside from the no cut, the sim seems to behave like all the other typical ones u read here in the forum. Need to turn of 3g and data roaming for it to work. No edge, jail breaking not required. Make sure u turn off data roaming or u can't recieve calls but can dial out.

    Only been a feel hours so far, hoping that I dont need to take sim out for a refresh like all the others.

    Cheers.

    I have tried mine on an international SIM (not US), so far the voice is fine.
    I couldn't have EDGE work, I don't know is it because of the International EDGE setting is not correct or problem with Turbo SIM itself.

    Also, though it says "no need cut SIM", I had to cut mine because the try was stuck won't insert.

    I'll try to test it on T-Mobile EDGE today and let you know.

    I called the seller to check if the 3G function will be unlocked if I used my International SIM back home, but unfortunately his English was not that good.

    If anyone has tested this on a 3G network please share your experience.

    Regards...



    UPDATED:
    This is what I found:
    1. Voice Unlocked on T-Mobile and International SIM
    2. EDGE Unlocked on T-Mobile and International SIM
    3. The SIM card has to be cut to avoid SIM tray stuck

    I haven't tested the 3G as T-Mobile and my International SIM don't have one yet.

    So far this SIM works.

    Regards
