I know I keep bleating about dual SIMs, but does anyone have experience of installing Cyanogenmod on a device with dual SIMs? (Accidentally or otherwise ;=))

CM doesnt really support dual sim card devices. Many reason for this. They are not really an option outside of Europe, Most dual sim card devices dont release the kernel source for their devices so CM doesnt develop for them.

It really is not the case that dual SIM phones are largely limited to Europe. They are extremely popular in Africa, and as I understand it in India and China also.

There are quite a few reasons for this. In my case I can get a decent Internet connection from one provider, but cheap calls to friends and family, and better money transfer facilities from another. Other users my be tied to one provider for their work, but prefer another for their private life - usually on cost grounds. Yet others simply like to have dual personas. OK for non-smart phones, some people get along with carrying two small phones, but carrying two sizeable and expensive smart phones is a bit much, and if you get robbed or something you have more to lose.

It would be a pity if CM were restricted in the long term to techies etc who were not interested in such considerations.

Sorry what I was meaning was outside the US. One of the biggest issues is no kernel source code for these devices. Without it there will never be a CM rom for it. Also it would need a maintainer, Someone with one of the devices to build it.

With Full Functionality
So It Is Now Available
