Here it is a Today Screen plugin that allows the display of the IMSI code (or a custom label for it) of the current active Sim. Works for all dual Sim solutions allowing to always know which is the SIM in use.

From my personal experience I prefer the use of simple power on-off solutions because they consume the same amount of energy of a normal SIM. The digital solutions provide a nice STK application but the resource consumption is not acceptable (especially for HTC Hermes). This plugin solve the main problem of the simple power on off Dual Sim holders: knowing which is the active Sim.

Configure your custom labels in the Today option dialog for the specific item (Dual SIM Today).

Update:
  1. Added menu to switch with a single click between the sim (works only for power on off adapter)
  2. Added the operator name associated to the SIM
  3. Some bugs fixed
Update 1:
  1. Added configuration parameter to:
    • Activate the display of operator name
    • Define the Sim switch mode: traditionally with a menu or directly with a tap & hold on the today screen (with the stylus or the scroll wheel)
  2. Some bugs fixed
Update 2:
  1. Added an option to disable the switch functionality
  2. Added the capabilty to open the option dialog directly from the today screen
Update 3:
  1. Direct access to the menu with the action button (or scroll wheel) without menu gesture
  2. Fixed bug in the highlight of the plugin
Update 4:
  1. Fixed bugs in the management of option dialog
Update 5:
  1. Show the last switch time
Update 6:
  1. Fixed operator name redraw


@forum users; help me in setting the priority of the enancements; currently they:
. support for Stk adapter
. support for dialin adapter
. check sim (periodically verify that the right sim is active)
. automatic switch based on specific rules
...




If the tool is useful for you feel free to donate something

Plugin is brilliant. Ideal for me would be to include it in plugin existing for the Today. I do not understand of programming but I have found this in wiki:

Show Network Operator Name in today screen
Restoring Today Item: WiFi, BT and Phone Connection Status:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Today\Items]Create "Wireless" use Key

"Flags"=dword:00000000
"Options"=dword:00000000
"DLL"="netui.dll"
"Order"=dword:00000000
"Enabled"=dword:00000001
"Type"=dword:00000004

Enable clicking on the today plugin above to open Comm Manager

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\WrlsMgr]Create String Value "Redirect"

"Redirect"= "\Windows\CommManager.exe"


Pardon by my English. I am Spanish. Thanks.

I really do not understand your question. Could you please explain it better? The plugin already shows his interface in the Today screen and can be configured in the standard way. Do you want the plugin show the operator name or some other information?

JPW, I have your same configuration in term of base software (except for Hermes, mine is an Hermes 200) and it works. Did you tried the plugin immediatly after the reset?
In order to understand what happened can you write details of the problem? when does the hermes hang? during installation, configuration, etc? What other software do you have?

Thanks and sorry for the problem.
