GT phone

Hi all,

I have a GT with built-in phone which works fine, but it is of course a pain in the a**e taking my mobile apart, removing the battery, inserting the SIM into the car slot etc every time, and reversing the process at the end of the journey.

As Orange do not apparently issue duplicate SIMs any more, does anyone know any other cunning way of utilising the built-in phone that does not involve getting a PAYG SIM with a different number (and the obvious confusion that that causes)?

Thanks in advance

Re: GT phone

Unfortunately, according to others who tried,
UK networks do not issue gemini/twin cards.

Perfectly easy technical solution, they just refuse
to do it.

So you need a 2nd card and number or continue
as you are.

Hint: The SonyEricsson k850i is a great phone if
you need to play with the SIM cards a lot.

Re: GT phone

Would you be able to get another Sim card for the car, then have your mobile divert to that number it if its turned off. So when you get in, turn your mobile off.
BTW I have orange dual sim cards for mine, but I got then a couple of years ago
