Introduce Trio (3 in 1) Sims

By: xollobru | 11-10-2014 23:56

I received a replacement sim from 3 in the post today as my new phone uses a different size to my old one and the new sim is what they call a Trio Sim in that it is a standard/micro/nano all in one!

 

No more need to perform a sim swap if and when someone changes mobiles and they take different sizes obviously assuming that they remember to keep the spare bits but they do clip back together for safe keeping.

 

Just a thought in that any extra costs in sourcing and supplying these new style sims will hopefully help reduce the need for and cost of sim swaps.

 

Kudos this idea if you think that giffgaff should look at supplying these sims, thank you!

 

Edited to add: Obviously this would also help if someone doesn't know which size sim to order or makes a mistake when ordering

Fab, already saved me having to order a SIM just because new phone had different size SIM.

Thanks.

This is also helpful for people who use multiple phones for different country-sims.
Say I move between France and the UK for extended periods of time and have one smart phone and one simpler phone. I can then easily put my giffgaff sim in the smart phone for times when I am in the UK where I also use data. When I am in France my french sim goes into the smart phone to use the native french data contract rather than the more expensive international data roaming with giffgaff, but maintaining call availability on my giffgaff number.
Very useful.

Yes I had this experience with Mobilltel in Bulgaraia and when I switch to talk to talk was so unresponsible for the traf, also so difficult to ajust the cards

I can see the idea for suggesting trio sims, but I can see a drawback.

The sim slot on all the phones I have used makes it very fiddly to get the sim in and out and in the process my duo sim has fallen apart and  It is now held together with superglue.

I imagine the problem would be even worse with a trio sim.

I think this is an inspired idea and wonder why it has not been done throughout the industry as we have had duo sims for some time.Yes Giffgaff should do this as a good idea is still a good idea even if you didn't think of it first.

THE PROBLEM IS IT IS MUCH MORE LIKELY FOR THE SIM CARD TO GET DAMAGED

IN THIS WAY AS IT IS MORE SENSITIVE IN THE SENSE OF TOUCHING IT.
