    What's the current sp on using 'thin Sims' (aka Turbo Sims, etc).

    I understand they worked ok for short periods, but then needed 'reactivation' ?
    from time to time?

    Have heard nothing recently about these, would they be suitable for someone visiting abroad for a few months at a time, enabling the use of 'local'sims to avoid roaming charges ?

    These things can be picked up for less than $5

    Have 3gs running 3.1

    They worked so-so, more like an emergency fix if you happened to lay trapped under a rampaged lorry with both legs broken to splinters and had an iPhone with FW 2.2.x

    I remember things like this being said in the past, have things changed?

    Have they been updated ?
