Perfect for scammers! haha, but seriously, having 2 sims is beneficial as you can use one phone for both work and personal numbers. Much better than having 2 phones.

There are many reasons to get dual-sim smartphones.

There are many asian gadget websites selling lots of such phones. Maybe etotalk.com is one of the most adapted to get a "worldwide customized" phone.
Personally I'm searching an Android 4.0 ICS dual-sim phone, seems to not exist yet, but expected in may.
Any experienced buyers here for such phones ?


Thanks a lot.

lol they even have triple sim standby 2GSM and 1CDMA, its really crazy. The real problem would be battery, having 1 is already bad, 2 or 3, dont even think about it.

If you are trying to get a dual sim phone to not have to carry two phones around and have a reasonably large amount of minutes on your phone, why not keep the work phone at home hooked up to the charger with call forwarding enabled to your main device? I am also aware of apps which allow caller ID spoofing, so essentially there would be no issue with calling back on a number which is not your 'work number'

Just trying to contribute a potential workaround

The 2 in 1 adapter is not really working, itīs a mess with the wiring and all that stuff. Samsung will release a Dual Sim Smartphone soon, I think itīs the Galaxy X which they will over with Dual Sim Support and Android Gingerbread, maybe this could be interesting for you.

Kind Regards

Get yourself a Nokia-101 !! It works, costs 20 EUR and the battery last for nearly 2 weeks in standby!!

BTW. Nokia ♥ Samsung = True!

I used to carry 2 phones...
Tried to find a dual SIM phone with dual standby mode and HSPA for both SIMs... no chance.
I decided to go for the Skyroam Gmate.
Now I'm running a unlimited phone call/sms/data SIM + simple SIM in Gmate.
It runs great. It allows me to have both numbers active at the same time.
For now, this is the solution (for me).

I would suggest using Google Voice for second line... That way you don't have yo buy a new phone, nor do you have to pay yo bills/add minutes to two lined
