So I have a tone of mobile phone numbers, different contracts and
some pre-paid cards. The main problem is that using multiple cards at
the same time is not really possible. There are almost no multi-sim-card
mobile phones and the ones that exist normally take only two (2) cards.
Although I don't want to use a specific multi-sim phone but rather any
phone (so I can always use the latest and greatest). I tried one of these
dual-sim card adapters but it sucked.
So what to do?
What I want is this:
I want to be able to have one (1) SIM card that does not belong to any
operator. Then I want X number of mobile phone numbers with either
a contract or without a contract (pre-paid). Then I just want to be able
to tell the operators to connect the contract/pre-paid numbers to
this one SIM card. The remaining problem would be what actual mobile network
to use, since the phone can only connect to one network at the time. Ideally
this would be solved through some roaming-like-agreement where each provider
just provides bare network access and just deals with the service/contract providers in order to charge for usage.
I guess this kind of idea is not new but today I'm somehow pissed again because
of all the stupid different SIM cards I have.
