Galaxy Note 3 Dual SIM Adaptors
To avoid international phone roaming charges
- There is a chinese version of phone, from Samsung
that takes 2 SIM, but not the
international version in UK, India etc.
- One could use IP call packages/services, but you'd
still need a local data supplier, whether that WLAN of
local building or a SIM enabled
- I went off the idea of buying a SIM doubler, after
writing this section, but before that I'd already
researched sections further below, so that info is
retained, possibly for others.
- Inside phone on moulding it says Micro SIM
- Inspection of inside of back of case shows a narrower
micro SIM will fit a little deeper
into the aligned curved long cylindrical depression, thus
less chance of case being pushed out a bit.
- Inspection of phone shows after a flexible ribbon
comes out from under SIM, it will need
a sharp kink up, to get over top of battery. If battery
is slid down to base of cavity, there still only a thumb
nail gap for the PCB. Then it will need another fairly
sharp kink to get over top of battery. Those sharp kinks
wont be good for reliability of PCB I guess.
- I taped in a mini (not micro) SIM card (0.83mm 0.032"
thick) on to battery, aligned directly but some way below
socket one side along edge of battery label. Presumably
aligned with curves of cover (I have the fold over cover
that covers front of screen), it all clicked back
together, but I could feel it bulge a bit, and on left of
phone it was a bit difficult getting final lugs near the
SIM to engage cover to phone, and phone no longer sits
flat on table, (with gap between end of phone and table
considerably more than one some height, as the sim
protrudes in the middle of phone, so slope is amplified
by the end, which would be a wobbly annoyance using
screen with phone on desk.
- To simulate the extra thickness that a ribbon and
steel clip would bring, I had previously taped 2 SIMs to
the battery, then the cover would not even click seal on
left near the double SIM height, so damp and dust could
ingress. OK, I guess a ribbon and steel clip would be
thinner than a second SIM card, but even so ...
- That was with normal thin (type) translucent adhesive
plastic film tape, (eg: German Tessa, British Sellotape
or American Scotch tape, or Australian Durex), so no
substantial thickness compared to SIM card.

10.69 for a double Or triple. I dont like the
look of the triple, cos line (hinge effect?)
between 2 SIM pads will be at 90
degrees to depression on back of phone, so may
require more clearance as it cant sit in depression
as the Double could.

SIM adapter. Extension SIM seems full size not Micro ? Type in
samsung galaxy note 3 and it lists both "all
models" and "neo" I chose all models, then
neo, still same web ref and still 35 EUR.
That's the "No Cut" Model I vaguely recall
they had more choice before, and that No Cut was more
expensive ? Maybe it's all they've got in stock and
trying to clear it.
