Hey Guys,

There are a bunch of Nokia models, from Telecom, that can have a sim card put in them. This doesn't work because of the way the phones have been setup "locked" for Telecom. However, I remember speaking to someone (this could be total BS) that the phones, if not locked, can have the ability to run the SIM card and the internal built in Telecom sim at the same time. So that, it's connected to both networks but then manages to switch according to the calls coming in etc, so if one was receiving a call on the Telecom number it will go to voicemail when someone tries to call on the Vodafone number? There should then be a feature for a default number that the phone will use for all outgoing calls and text messages.

I don't know if this is possible or not - but can someone confirm if the Nokia 6265 has got the ability to do that? I've been trying to give everyone my new number, but long lost relatives would still sometimes text happy brithday messages to the 021 and I'd like to make use of promotional offers from both networks without carrying two phones with me :) When I called Telecom they said it wasn't possible - but is that just a Telecom phone limitation or hardware limitation?

Thank you!

This is a RUIM slot, not a SIM card slot. A RUIM is basicly a CDMA SIM card. You can not use any of Telecom's phones on Vodafones GSM / 3GSM network or vice versa. Currently Telecom does not use RUIMs.

Thanks for your quick reply, was still on the site reading other topics.

Oh well, was hoping for it to be possible! It would have been incredibly convenient.
