If you ever wanted two numbers on your iPhone then folks at UNEASYSilence have a solution which involves hacking your iPhone to help you achieve this.
Before you proceed to get the details available after the jump I must add that the method it is not for the faint hearted.
The hacking method involves using a dual SIM card holder and some SIM cutting to fit the cards into the adapter.
There are basically two different methods to get two numbers on your iPhone.
1. They call this the all AT&T (hacked and unhacked) method.
2. The other is the mixed network method.
In the first method i.e. the all AT&T (hacked and unhacked) method, apparently there is one type of adapter in which the active SIM card automatically switches each time you turn the phone off and back on. If you want to have two AT&T phone numbers (meaning using two AT&T SIM cards) you don’t have to do anything else to get two number support on your iPhone.
In case of the other method i.e. the mixed network method, in which you want to use non-AT&T SIM cards then you will need a different adapter and then you will need to jailbreak unlock and activate your iPhone. For this you can either use ZiPhone 3.0: New version of Popular tool to JailBreak and Unlock iPhone or iLiberty: Easy to use Application to JailBreak, Activate and Unlock iPhone.
The cool thing about the second method is that Apple has apparently already built dual SIM support into the iPhone’s firmware. So once you are done hacking your iPhone you’ll be able to switch between the SIM cards via iPhone’s Settings as can be seen in the screenshot below.
Under the SIM applications menu option you should see two options SIM1 and SIM2, and you can select any one to be the SIM your iPhone uses to make and receive calls.
It is important to note here that folks at UNEASYSilence have the following warning before you try out this method "We are not responsible for any damage you do to your SIM’s or iPhone. I’m not kidding, you have been warned!" and possibily could also void the warranty.
