    Hi
    I would like to have 2 SIM cards in my iPhone. I have read some forums that recommend Simore double SIM cards...but i am unsure about the major inconvinients...
    Does it mean i need to jailbreak my iPhone? Is it working well...
    Anyone could share his opinion, thoughts and recommendations?
    Thanks

    Stop reading there because you can not have two SIM cards in your iPhone. One and only one. If your device supports 2 SIM cards and looks like an iPhone, I have bad news for you. It ain't an iPhone, but the Chinese knock-off called the HiPhone.

    What would be the point of this even if the iphone supported this device?
    Too much work to take out the simcard out and stick another one in?
    How long would that take?

    There still be no benefit and more cons and possible hardware destruction. Forcing 2 SIMs into the space of just one is asking for something to go wrong.

    Check out the link...it's two micro SIM cards in the same space as a normal SIM held together by an adaptor. Doesn't appear to be any forcing of any kind.

    Micro SIM or not, the iPhone was not design to house two SIM chips held together by an adapter.

    It is not a smart move to make. I advice against it. Hell, I even advised against using TurboSIM when it was used to unlock.

    i have a colleague who did it...and it works well. it is taking you about an hour but i think you need to be good with screw drivers. It does not force the sim tray at all...
    The benefit would be to have 1 phone vs. 2 today. I have my pro phone with no data pack (an old Nokia) and my iPhone 3GS.

    Pros
    1 phone vs 2
    Can switch from pro to iphone to get the 3G
    Can switch from iphone to pro when i have to give a call (free)

    Cons
    Daring to go for the Simore thing...
    With 2 phones i will always receive my calls while with a dual sim card if someone calls me on my private while my pro sim is activated i wont receive the call (unless i can redirect calls from one of my lines)

    so pratically i would prefer to carry one phone...but I would need more advice...i will do more research.

    Apparently not..the only issue i heard about is that some had issues to remove the tray after installation and had to unscrew the back of the iPhone...but some had the issue...not all.

    Does the phone need to be unlocked to do this? How about those Turbo Sim unlock things. How do they work? And do they work well, and also do they work at this time?

    No need to be unlocked as far as I know. I do not know the Turbo thing you refer to...

    there are 2 options for dual sim cards... one that involves a sim card like thing with a 'ribbon' stick out of the tray and this folds to the back of the iphone4 and it connects to the 2 sim cards there and you use it with a compatible case.

    Theres another that works kinda like a mophie pack and connects via the dock connector works as an extra battery as well as a dual sim thingy.

    Nothing new...

    Stay away from Simore. My Infinity Dual Sim Adapter never worked. I sent it back. No refund, no apologize.

    I would like to share my dad experience with Simore product. I have bought dual sim adopter, since Simore is not EU member the product was waiting in the custom two weeks, I got it after three weeks and had to pay additional 27 euro custom duty. I have immediately found out that the description of the adopt or is not right, I have noticed that the adptor is 'clumsy', not friendly.
    The same day I packed it and sent it back to Simore with request to credit my account.
    Till today, one month is over, no respond!!!!
    Such a company should be avoided!!!!!

    If you want a Dual sim phone there is plenty of Android ones out there, I have a Xiaomi Note 3 Pro, brilliant phone without the cost of something like a Samsung S6/S7!

    There is nothing out there for iPhones otherwise I would have it, hence why I went Xiaomi route.
