The idea behind this device is fantastic: put 3 SIM cards and switch between then in software on your iPhone, enabling you to use the provider of your choice. However what sounds great in theory does not work so well in practice. Firstly, the iPhone SIM tray closes very tightly and this product requires a long connection ribbon to protrude through the tray. This is impossible to achieve because there is simply no clearance for the ribbon. Secondly, the SIM cards to not sit very tight neither in the device nor inside the phone and the normal use of the phone makes them shift and disconnect, causing "No SIM" messages on the phone. What you end up with is something that works for about a week and then breaks, because it's so fragile.
Product is so flimsy, it worked for less than 1 minute, and several hours later, with mutiple attempts it still shows No SIM. Not what I expected for $20 when others are as low as $6. Plus the cradle was designed for a larger SIM than the iPhone 4.
Within 1 hour of trying to install it, it was broken. The super thin wires are meant to pass thru the super tight gap withing the sim card slot of iPhone. The super tight construction of iPhone actually shears the thin wiring of this gadget. I had real rough time trying to fit the receiving end of the piece correctly within the sim card slot because when you try to close the slot with the sim card in it this piece will not stay in place. You will have to try it many times before you install it correctly. In the process, the thin wiring of the gadget will be sheared off. I was not even able to try it before it broke off into two pieces.
