Dual Sim Phones

I know the question was asked last October but with advances in communications technology I'm wondering if any dual sim phones are now available and if so are they reliable. I have seen adapters on fleabay for around €3 and am thinking they must be rubbish (allegedly).

Hi Be careful if buying dual sim phones from china or japan settings for phone are not always easy to get from o2, orange and vodaphone
I cannot speak for thier functionality in the UK, but I had come across them before from Pixmania - try this link -
like yourself I'm on the Emerald Isle but have checked out the link. The phones are worth another look but I dont think I would chance the adaptor from them either, just read the write up below and figure for yourself. I cannot make sense of it.

"Solution that allows to unify two cards SIM in a single one. Ideal for which they use two movable telephones, because SIMs in a single one allows to unify two, that is to say, to take a single movable telephone GSM. One is kit that allows to trim the two card

Hi Noel - I know what you mean - sounds like a direct translation using Babelfish from some far eastern site.

I, like you could do with a dual simmer - save me carrying around a work and personal phone, but I need one that allows me to shut down the work one when I'm not on call - I don't think any of them do that yet.

Sure we could design and build it together!!
Niamh & Michael,

How about a green version, recycled bean cans, old string and an off switch courtesy of a scissors. Like you I need to separate work and personal phone as cutbacks bite deeper. I have recently had my work phone withdrawn and now have to bill expenses for business use, this saves having someone in the office manage 100+ phones as all expenses are now done electronically. I will be keeping my number but will need another phone for my own stuff and a dual sim seems like the answer if they are reliable.

Hi Noel,

My phone is so old that the bean cans would be an upgrade in O2's eyes - they still won't upgrade me, as I only use my personal phone to let the wife know when I'm leaving the office (get the dinner on / tell the other fella to go home / put the kids to bed!), and to receive calls. As for the work phone - sure I never use that - but I have to carry it.

I googled "review" and the first phone in the Pixmaia list I sent earlier. I found a decent review of it - and seems to says they are ok to use - but "caveat emptor" - it's a lot of money to pay out if they don't work - but you might be able to claim your money back if it didn't do what it said on the tin!

Check it out -
Hi All, Allegedly they are available in UK
