Hey members,

Ive been doing a little bit of reading on dual simcards for mobile phones.

Compatible with the latest Worldwide SIM cards comp V1, V2 and V3 all supported.
- Change the sim on the phones menu 
- Use 2 sim cards with 1 mobile phone 
- Switch between 2 cards directly, no need to turn your phone on and off. 
- No need to change the cover or back of your phone 
- You can change lines quickly when the signal is weak and save more numbers
- You can set auto switch between 2 numbers
- Support GSM and 3G-USIM SIM Card (for order shipped after 8 Nov 2008).

Do you think that would work with iPhone in NZ? Switching between Telecom/Vodafone?

Only downfall in my eyes is that you cannot run them both simoultaneously

"Change the SIM on the phone menu" sounds like something must be running on your phone - and if you don't see "iPhone supported" on their site then I'd say no, it won't work.

I believe you can use a Sim Application to switch? That was just one of the many options i dug up, I wonder if anyone in NZ has successfully running dual sim cards.

It may be one of the types that can switch cards upon power-on power-off as well as an application, interesting device. I'd be keen to try one but not at $20 + $$$$$ postage from the US.
