Probably just an iPod peel

Basically, a GSM phone that attaches to an iPod to turn it into a 2G phone. This must be the same in order to allow two networks to be active at the same time. Clever.

Rubbish

Can someone explain how this is different to buying a second phone and gluing it onto the back of the iPhone? I take it that you can't use MMS or data on the "second SIM"? Looks like an awful product.

I still don't understand why the networks ankd phone makers don't offer Line2 (even Orange has stopped for new customers).

From a network perspective it should be bringing in free money - just think of all those Corporate accounts who can offer their staff a cheap second number instead of them having a separate personal mobile probably on a different network.

AND THE POINT IS?

WHAT is the point unless you think it makes you more important, having two phones?

Err Work phone and personal phone?

Many companies, Mine included demand that you go through your mobile bill and mark off any personal calls so that they can demand reimbursement.

This despite the fact that it maybe takes 30-60 minutes to go through a bill, costing them £10-£20 in wages to reclaim maybe £2-£3 of calls... Ho Hum.

Most people just keep their personal phone as well.

Just because YOU don't have a need for 2 phones, doesn't mean there isn't one.
