    A8 tech,

    Proving the absence of something is trickier than proving its existence.

    It is fair to say that several of us have tackled all the main providers - Vodafone, T-Mobile/Orange/EE, Three and O2 - all say they don't do it.

    If you search the web for dual SIMs in the UK you will find some references to a service provided by Orange to large business accounts, but that is not available to the consumer.

    You cannot get Dual SIMs in the UK.

    This from Vodafone:

    "We stopped
    the 'Dual SIM' service about one year ago now. This was due do the service
    becoming less and less popular for reasons such as cost and also the fact that
    customer were simply using another number and performing redirects on the
    numbers.
    "

    This from T-Mobile:

    "We used to use a system called multi sim which is similar to the one described
    below but due to on going issues we stopped doing it a couple of years ago."

    I spoke with Orange this week and they still offer Single Number, which is two sims for the same number, however this is only available to business customers!
    I argued this long and hard to no avail.

    The problem with this is firstly it is for business customers only and secondly it cannot be part of a wider business package that has inclusive or shared minutes. So even if you happened to work for a business that had an orange account, you are unlikely to be allowed this option anyway.

    Not a solution.

    Hi all

    Is there any solution to this yet? I have just come from a BMW where there was a data SIM in the car as part of the BMW Connect subscription; this got the online services to the car and I could still use my iPhone via Bluetooth for contacts, and calling via handsfree, with the contacts appearing in the car display.

    I've just got an A6 Allroad C7 and cannot believe that a separate car SIM a) is required, b) is not provided and c) disables the iPhone Bluetooth for address book and phone calls! How stone age is that?

    I do not particularly want to go to a Galaxy S3, but is there a fix for the MMI software from Audi that gives the same functionality as I had in the BMW?... Not holding my breath!

    Many thanks

    No. Audi don't appear to be particularly bothered.

    I went to the galaxy S3 and haven't looked back at all, only my view, but the S3 is loads better than iphone 4, 4S and 5.

    I hated the only Galaxy S3 I have tried, and also, if you are committed to the iPad, you are committed to the iPhone.
