Differences between the non-cutting and the cutting
The non-cutting type
only fits into approx. 70% of today's handsets whereas
the cutting type can be installed in over 95%.
Both of your sim cards are simply
put into the Dual Sim Adaptor. One parts goes into the
sim card holder, the other is either placed beneath the battery
or cover. Make sure you have enough space (see
How to test if your handset offers enough space
(at your own risk): You may put your sim card next to the
sim-card holder. If you can put the battery and cover back on
your mobile, the adapter should work properly Here is a
list of successfully tested
handsets (no guarantee & non-exhaustive).
For the following handsets we recommend the cutting
Nokia 6270, 9300 & N90, Siemens ME45
& S75, Sagem MY-X5-2,
Motorola V3(i), and
SonyEricsson W800i. These handsets do not have the
sufficient space for the adaptor without cutting the SIM cards.
sim-cards are cut, put into the dual sim card and
hold by a steel plate. The dual sim card is then placed into the
mobile handset instead of the sim-card. Using the
accessories provided with the dual
sim card it is also possible to use the cut sim-cards
individually (just like before cutting them). If you are afraid
of cutting your sim cards please take a look at our
Dual Sim Adaptor without
cutting. The cutting type is not
recommended for the SonyEricsson P1i (sim holder that
does not allow to introduce the Dual Sim easily).
Dual Sim with cutting has the same size as a regular SIM-card.
It is easier to install and more reliable in use. We only
recommend the non-cutting Dual Sim if you really do not want to
cut your SIM cards.
