Anyone tried one of these dual sim adapters for Phones that only have one SIM slot?

 

http://www.magic-sim.com.au/product/id/36/MAGICSIM_ELITE_-_iPHONE_6_DUAL_SIM_ADAPTER.html

 

The product blurb makes it sound like you have to manually switch, selecting which SIM is active at any one time. So you couldn't be available to take calls on both numbers at the same time.

These have been around for years.. They work just as you've described - power cycling the phone results in it switching between the active SIM in use. Both can't be active at once.

Thanks, it seems they serve a purpose (might be helpful for travelling), but are certainly not a replacement for a dual sim phone, or carrying two phones, and being available on both numbers.
