Today I got my Dual-SIM adapter I bought for my Simyo UMTS card (very cheap UMTS service in Germany). The Dual-SIM adapter is one of the NoCut kind (see image) since I don't want
to cut my SIM cards. It was a real tough fight to get the adapter in my Nokia 6233 while
being able to close the battery cover. I managed it by fixating the 2nd SIM card in
the middle of the battery with a small piece of sticky tape and using some force to push
the cover onto the phone. It took me about 10 minutes before I had it done but the
whole point of a Dual-SIM adapter is that you don't need to disassemble your phone
every time you need to switch the card.
The bad part is that the adapter I bought only works in GSM mode. UMTS cards work
but only in GSM mode. So now I'm searching for a adapter that works in UMTS mode.
at least I know that this kind of adapter will fit.
