I was browsing thru and online auction a few weeks back, when i came across a ad for a 2gsm phone. Its made in china/taiwan, and you can use 2 sim cards in the phone, and both numbers are active at the same time. Seller was selling it for about $300. Its seem this phone has been in the market for a while now, and i was wondering, has anyone has bought one? whats you feedback on the cellphone?

I dont know how your service provider works there but here in Nigeria you will still be charged by the two sim card provider it like diverting your calls, unless there is a change in the system . I have used it before, i have to purchase another phone for my other sim card.

What i am saying is that if you are called on one active line your other call will be diverted to the active line and you will be charged for using another line to answer the call so the paerson that calls you pay automatically for calling you and you too pay for receiving the call on another provider. If you dont have "credit" or money on your line you will not be able to make or receive calls, so on the long run it is not economical to having two phones. I am talking about Nigeria i might not know what operates in other country(s) as we are always ripped off in Nigeria by service providers! with our govt supporting them because they have cut in it.
