    Hi, i watched some cool cases with double sim features, anyway, since my iphone is CDMA (No SIM card) I can't use them, so i was wondering is there some strange way to connect a SIM, maybe by WIFI, Bluetooth? I don't know, thanks!

    No. Even if there was, your iPhone wouldn't use it.

    If you wanted a GSM phone, why did you buy a CDMA phone?

    The CDMA phone and the GSM phone use different radios. No way to use a SIM card with a CDMA phone.

    The iPhone 4S is a dual radio phone.

    Nope. You might want to read up on the difference between CDMA and GSM. You can't "just connect a SIM card" to make a CDMA device GSM. The SIM card alone doesn't make something GSM despite how often people seem to think this. Maybe not the best analogy but it's a bit like asking for an accessory to connect a gas tank to an electric car to make it a hybrid. What you'd need isn't an "accessory" but a core piece of hardware.
