Came across this rather useful little mobile phone hack on AfriGadget some while ago. Nice to see ideas from the end-user finally working their way into the manufactured product. Whilst there are dual-SIM phones now available, hopefully such ingenuity may find its way into the mainstream. With the benefit of being able to seamlessly switch between two (or more) SIM cards for better price tariffs etc., and until such time as there is a true European provider, it would be rather nice to be able to use a ‘local’ number on one’s travels without having to carry about a collection of assorted SIMs that have to be swapped and changed every time you cross a border.
