Martin I am amazed at all of the SIM driven devices in Europe. A block heater?! I'm still waiting for vending machines that work on the network here in the US.

Cheers, Tom

I'm astounded by this. How on Earth do you manage to keep track of what SIM card works in which country and whether it is still in credit? I used to switch SIMs but kept forgetting to forward numbers etc. I currently use a UK O2 SIM with 'unlimited' BlackBerry data roaming and and a 'free' incoming calls add-on in Europe. It's not a solution for data on my netbook, but I try to find cheap WiFi where I can. Opera on the BB is OK for many websites plus GoogleMaps/Facebook etc are acceptable (thanks for the Opera tip by the way). Single SIM saves me hassle and friends and work can reach me where ever I am. I saw an Austrian (Orange) deal that looked good for voice calls, an call inclusive Europe-wide package - I hope we see more of those and that they include data too.


Hi Dominic,

yes, SIM card management at times is not so simple but what can you do :-)



You seem to be ideal candidate for new business idea, which may be related to something like myTelco concept ...
All your SIMs somehow connected and controlled together.
More and more people start to use more than one SIM.
Anybody interested ?
