Dual SIM Adapter

This article is still in progress.

Simply put, as long as you can manage to put this adapter into your phone, then it is super convenient to change your SIM cards without physical swapping and rebooting. Works for both voice and data (2G/3G/4G/LTE). No it cannot dual standby, that's what a dual-sim phone does and you do can use this adapter in a dual-sim phone.

I bought the adapter from Newegg for less than $6, other similar adapters should work as well. I have tested it in my LG F6 and BLU NEO 4.5, work like a charm. To use it in my LG G2, which has a SIM door like iPhone, I have to leave the adapter outside and hold it by using a phone case (I usually don't use cases).

  1. Talk about dual-sim, now pageplus is LTE-able, do you know is there a dual-sim phone that one from pageplus dedicated for voice service (for its coverage quality), and one from tmobile cheap data (cheap)? TIA.

    1. I think you only can use one sim not both
      The adapter just reduces the time you change sim

  4. Can you use both sims simultaneously? For example, one just for data and the other just for voice?

    1. No. You must use a dual sim phone for that.

  5. How can the adapter be installed in a G2? The film carrying the wires has to be folded 180 degree twice to get the right direction and hidden in the case. I am afraid the wires will be cut open.

    1. Yes there is only one way to insert the cable and you have to bend it. It is not too fragile as long as you don't bend it too often.
