Default Twin SIM or SIM Clone

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone have an opinion on which would be a better approach, to use 2 phone numbers with my blackberry I have found the Dual SIM holders and SIM Cloners I am using a 7230, with an 8700 on the way. Would like to be able to have my personal SIM so I can make calls from and use the company SIM for connectivity to the BES. I have seen on the twin SIM websites that you must have one of the SIM's forwarded to receive calls on your device from both service providers.

I don't see that as a problem, does anyone have any input on how th SIM Cloner works, or how well the dual SIM holder works?

Thanks, Doug

Is it one that you have to cut the SIM?

A lot of people here have said that a dual SIM doesn't work with the Blackberry. Just search "Dual SIM". You'll see a bunch of threads saying it's not possible.

This is absolutely correct dual SIMS will not work.

However Three Sims will.



Just kidding...... it's been a long day... time for some humor....
