Max, 31 Jan 2012It is quite usual for some people to carry 3-4 phones here in Romania too.
Let me explain:... moresame here in indonesia.
i think only american can't understand why GOOD QUALITY by BIG VENDOR dual sim and triple sim will be a hit.
already released... triple sim before.... by gfive phone i am using it since 6 mon
Not interested. I don't use a lot of sim for texting. I'm more likely to use internet and games.
It is quite usual for some people to carry 3-4 phones here in Romania too.
Let me explain: an official one to conduct business on - this is the number you can afford to give anyone, or the one your boss/company more or less requires you to carry around and answer; two private ones for the two major networks, so you can call anyone cheaply regardless of their network (subscriptions here tend to include lots and lots of call-time within the network, but very little outside it); and finally, since at least one of our cable/net providers formed their own "network" and offers 3G handsets/SIMs to use on it for free (included in your cable subscription, including some call time), some tend to carry that one around too as a fourth phone to use when time is low on the previous two.
So yeah, two or three phones is fairly common. To put this another way: at any given assembly of friends, the number of phones present is guaranteed to outnumber the number of people...
as usual ugly looks......boring like chines device,,,, some indian brands like micromax, karbonn, lava, zen and others gives the smart looks to the handsets....and they are better and popular but, lg always goes same....somebody needs to help lg..if they want to create their brand value as an international brand.....
really? were dual sim phones in so much demand that they had to go and make a three sim phone? that's just stupid. it's exactly like those articles where they say that nokia w7p sells like crazy, but i ve never seen one on the street or in stores :)))...just stupid!!!
HateU, 31 Jan 2012Triple-SIM? Are you kidding me! I want quad-SIM! Otherwise I have to buy 2 different phone to ... moreI hope that Nokia will make an octagon-SIM phone with eight SIM-cardslot. Triple is way too few.
Triple-SIM? Are you kidding me! I want quad-SIM! Otherwise I have to buy 2 different phone to my 4 SIM-cards. Same on u LG!
hi, 31 Jan 2012why does all these dual/triple/quad sim card phones have such a horrible spec.I too would like to know the. very same thing
Three? That's odd, they need to make good one sim smartphones/phones first.
Huey Err, 31 Jan 2012I don't see the point, If the phones battery dies all three numbers can't be used.
How do yo... moreSimple,
In Lagos we have a similar mobile that dedicates each sim with 1 of the 3 batteries inside (like one semi partitioned block 2000MAH). You can also use all 3 batteries with one sim if you wish.
The solar power cells behind the screen can trickle charge the redundant cells if they are not in use. A nice idea if the phone is not in your pocket most of the time!
We have had these for almost 3 years now, so us Africans are obviously not so far behind like you might think.
The answer is that - there is a market for it. Predominantly in Africa. People carry arround 2-3, even 4 different mobile phones, as network coverage is very poor in most areas, so they have 3-4 subscibtions with various providers.
The phone specs are poor, as the device is inteded for a poor market - Africa.
It is a huge selling point for Africans to have a device where they can insert 3 sim-cards, instead of carrying around 3 devices. This one device will connect automatically to 3 different networks and give them much needed connectivity/availability at all times.
In Africa - it will be a huge sales success
one sim for work, one for the wife and one for the several girls on the go... ;-) nice on LG
Becouse it is ment to be used as a PHONE not smartphone ;) You need it to talk, nothing more.
I don't see the point, If the phones battery dies all three numbers can't be used.
How do you plan on dealing with that?
