There must have been times when iPhone users would have wanted to have a second sim card slot in their beloved iPhone. By the way, not everyone needs a dual sim phone but sometimes you do need when you are travelling in roaming or say another service provider gives a better data plan than your mobile operator. Since coming out first few years back, dual sim phones have become popular at least here in India. From dumb phones to Android mid-rangers to flagships dual sim phones have really got the attention of public.
While Android and Windows Phone both offer dual sim capabilities, Apple has still not thought of making a dual sim iPhone. Most of the iPhone users who need a dual sim capability either carry a second phone or simply switch to other platforms which provide the dual sim functionality.
I used to carry two phones while I was using iPhone 5; I never wanted to change from my iPhone. iPhone users would agree with me once you have used an iPhone you would not want to switch to another phone. While using two phones I had to always remember not to forget one of my phones at a dinner place, also always keep track of charging both the phones. Those were some pretty awkward times to use and carry two phones.
Also, there is a cost part with carrying two phones. I have seen users carrying two iPhones, but these are not some cheap devices and not everyone can afford them easily. Sadly I have to switch from my iPhone 5 as the primary one due to battery issues and I am presently using a dual sim Android phone. I miss my iPhone but now having the dual sim functionality and a need to carry one phone only I think it’s better this way.
To solve the problem of iPhone users who require dual sim functionality there is a solution and it is called Krimston Two. Krimston Two will turn your iPhone 6 into having two active SIMs at the same time. Krimston CEO Fouad Fattal said:
“This product is ideal for iPhone owners and travellers across the globe. We are eliminating the hassles associated with carrying a phone for work, a phone for travel, a phone for data, and another for leisure.”
Krimston Two looks like a battery case for iPhone and turns the iPhone into a phone with two simultaneous GSM lines. Not just that, the case also doubles as battery backup, mobile hotspot. Krimston Two project was opened up for funding on Kickstarter and till now with 404 backers the project has reached its goal of $100,000. The company is shipping out the first lot of produced 175 Krimston Two orders this July and want the users to provide feedback to the company for future improvements. The retail price of the device will be $199 when it hits the market, for other orders the device will start shipping in August later this year.
Using Krimston Two is easy too. You just need to insert your second sim in the side slot of the case, download Krimston app on iPhone and clip on the case to your iPhone and you are ready to go. All your contacts, phone calls, messages can be accessed from your primary sim. The Krimston Two will turn into a mobile hotspot by using data from the sim in the case to allow you to use data at local rates. The device also monitors your internet usage and adjusts Wi-Fi signals to get the maximum battery life out of your phone. There is one more trick up its sleeve the device can be turned into a battery charger for your iPhone by just a button using the Krimston Two battery.
