Anyone ever bought one of these multi-SIM phones from China?

Such as ebay item 110648135864.

Is it a pile of crap? Looking for a multi SIM phone for very basic calls/texts only. Will not be used for internet/roaming or anything like that.

Wondering if anyone has had actual experience.

I bought one of these last year. They work ok, but the battery is absolute rubbish (lasts a few hours). They supplied two batteries and both were useless. It phone went to the recycle yard in February.

Any idea what price it is expected to be. Was looking at the C1-00 but not sure how ugly it is in person, plus only one SIM is active at once.

Just go onto Dx and buy a cheap duel sim one on there! then If it's no good you haven't wasted alot of cash on one.

Hmmm might be interested in one of those too, the c2-00 I mean, as a back up for if/when my smartphone's battery runs out. Just been looking at the specs etc, basic phone but apparently both sims in standby at once (which I think means both can receive calls without being switched to) and the second sim is hot swappable as it's a slot on the outside like a microSD..... price is expected to be about 50 euros by the way.

Hmm, so about £44 ... very tempted to hold out for one of those!

£86 here, I'd buy one for £44 but for £86 I can just super glue two cheap phones together.

Ouch. Although surely that website isnt correct:

Pre Order. Expected on 28/02/2011.

the problem is in most countries and most networks a single IMEI number needs to be active for the phone to allow any signal (not the case for t-mobile uk) . Most of the import Chinese phones have a generic Imei code and wont work
