When you recieve the package it comes in a plastic bag at the size of mother earth.. inside.. is a little plastic box at the size of a credit card.. he he
After som failing I figned out I had to disable PIN1 code (startup PIN for SIM card) in order to get it working.
When you have deactivated your PIN codes (on BOTH cards) you need to cut you sim card, use a nail sissor (atleast thats what I used and it worked, in the end..).
The box contains:
2x plastic sim card with holes for cutted sim cards.
2x Stickers, guessing they are for holding the cutted simcard in place at the plastic adapter.
2x metal cover, 1 slim and one a bit thicker.
2x transparent stickers to place at the simcard so you know where to cut.
1x Sim card adapter.
Place the transparrent stickers over the sim cards
(thanks to seller for image)
Chop chop both sim cards, remember to take off the transparrent stickers when your done.
As you see in the lower sim card, you actually have to cut over the chip, but no worries, well atleast it worried me a lot, untill i found that picture.. so I continued.. Just make sure you fit the sticker as the image shows, so you don't cut to much.
For me I had to cut off the whole black line telling me where to cut, before it would fit into the adapter.
When your done its time to place the sim cards in adapter, the adapter comes with a metal cover in the back, this can easilly be removed by sliding it to the side.
Place the sim cards and close with the correct metall case, the difference here, is one is thinner than the other, this is to get your sim card to fit into the phone. (acording to the manual) But I used both of them in the troubleshooting progress, and noticed no difference on this phone.
At first boot:
SIM card not identified.
Second boot: same thing.
Took booth cards out and tested them in those sim card adapters that came with the kit, both worked, disabled PIN security at the one card that didn't have it.
Hooked it back up, and everything worked like a charm.
I can now use two sim cards, (NOT simultanious tho, I'll have to either setup auto switch which can switch each xx minutte or hour) Or manually change it
At the main menu you'll get a option thats called "magic sim". This is where you swap which of the cards to use.
Initial testing shows its quite stable, switching between sims take aprox 20seconds.
One time it failed to connect to the network. But turning off wireless radio and on again initiated it.
Attached are some screenshoots from the menu As usual, I take NO RESPONSIBILITY what so ever if you damage your sim card / phone using this. Or if it don't even work on your phone. Use at OWN risk
This review was written when I bought this over one month ago. Now I've tried it and have no issues else that sometimes i have to do a power off and on to get it to read one of the sim cards, but that might aswell be my own fault
Hope you like it!
