Default Dual SIM standby for the Samsung Galaxy S2

Hey guys,

I mentioned this on another thread but thought it deserved it's own...

So I have a dual sim adapter for sim switching on my galaxy s2 which im happy with but noticed a new product I'd not seen before called Gmate which seems to let you have 2 sims actually active on your phone at the same time.

I emailed the website to see if it was compatible with the Galaxy S2 and they confirmed it was...Obviously this got me excited so I've ordered one!

This is the item and company I've ordered it from...

http://www.magic-sim.com/product-details.php?Product=13

I only ordered it today so can't confirm if it does what it claims to do yet but as soon as it arrives I'll give it a whirl and report back. Hopefully it's going to be as good as it looks!

Right so this has been an unbelievable service...

Ordered yesterday and the MAGICSIM Gmate arrived this morning. Took all of 5 mins to install and it's an incredible device. So so impressed.

It's well built and easy to use and best of all I have 2 sim cards active on my galaxy s2 now.

I can confirm that both sims can receive and make calls, SMS and browse the web.

Couldn't recommend the product or the service highly enough.

Hope this info helps guys!

Awsome! Could you make some pictures of it? I dont think i really understand what it is...

It is a 2nd device that enables your phone to have 2 sims active at same time?

How do you charge the device and how long does it last?

You charge it off a USB cable to your computer. Well I can't say for definate how long it lasts as I've not ran it dead yet but according to the manual it lasts around the same time as my Samsung battery.

I am also keen on ordering! However, I usually use my sgs 2 with either a Bluetooth headset or my Metawatch / Bluetooth watch.

Can you try using it simultaneously with a Bluetooth headset?
