I had returned it to magic-sim and it cost me 15USD to ship it back which is quit expensive.
I have been insisting them to return me my money but they kept offering replacement. Even it fits in their refund policy(http://www.magic-sim.com/legals.php)

Warning! Do not buy this fake Magic-SIM.

Hmmm, odd, I purchased one in March for 24.73 from Magic-Sim.com and it seems to be genuine.
It came in its 'magic-sim' packaging with instructions and works very well, despite my N7105 being rooted and all.
Switching SIMs tends to work 80% of the time (it works 100% if you use airplane mode to force it to switch), and was able to get 4g speeds on both SIMs.

The only thing I could fault it on, was that inserting it in the Micro SIM card slot isn't easy; but that's to be expected, given the limited space for both it and the Micro-SIM.

Using it with Multisim, works quite well in that it allows you to assign specific notification bar icons for each SIM, providing you with an easy way to identify which SIM you've got enabled at the time. It's widget works some of the time, as its tends to activate/deactivate airplane mode rather too quickly, thus not giving it enough time to force the SIM switch.

How did you determine that it was fake?

The build quality and the price.
I tried to make it work but it didn't.

It isn't a successful gadget.

I am going through that now. They told me that rooted phones not supported & wouldn't give me a refund. But luckily I paid with PayPal, & filed a dispute, Told me take at least 10 days, but not even 24 hours later it was found in my favor. I have to send back, not sure how much will cost doing that later today.

Don't feel bad they didn't tell me till I mention refund, then they tell you, then say you voided warranty by putting in phone. Luckily I paid with PayPal. They should mention that, but don't. Just to get the money then say no can't work with phone & now no refund. Costed me just shy of 8usd to ship back. So not bad.

I had to pay 15USD to ship it back.

Still no refund or replacement.

I'd paid using Sage Pay.

They are not nice people, they are scammers. They did the same thing with me: they told me to ship back the defective item and they never sent me back a replacement or refund as I asked. They stopped answering emails and I had to file a PayPal claim that is still in the process.
They should not be allowed to do business anymore and PayPal should stop the service with them.
