SIMable unlocking chip shipped to 37 countries

[SIMable chip, used to unlock GSM handsets, reports being shipped to 37 countries since launch in late April.]

London -- It was announced today that the revolutionary mobile phone unlocking SIMable chip has been shipped to 37 different countries since launch in late April, to both end users and Distribution channels, and the website has been receiving up to 4,000 first time visitors per day.

SIMable is an ultra thin chip, that when attached to a SIM card, immediately fools most mobile phones into thinking that they have been unlocked. It is compatible with the majority of mobile handsets, including all Nokia BB5 phones, which are becoming more and more difficult to be freed from their original Network.

Introduced to the market by UK company 24/7 Mobile Solutions Ltd, SIMable can be installed and working in a Network locked handset in a matter of seconds. By using a customised manufactured cutting press, which comes with each unit, a tiny hole needs to be pressed out in the SIM card. Next SIMable needs to be aligned with the SIM and inserted into the locked handset. Using the cutting press, SIMable can be used more than once by transferring to any other SIM card.

Whilst mobile phone unlocking is not illegal, it will in most cases invalidate the handset's warranty. SIMable requires no handset interference and thus the full manufacturer's guarantee remains intact.

The company is keen to stress that unlike any other similar application on the market, SIMable enables 100% functionality on all phones, including full 3G operation.

The product, available at the company's website is launched at a retail price of £16.99, with a standard small delivery charge covering all destinations worldwide. Each package includes the SIMable chip and customised cutting press, which eliminates any need for messy SIM cutting with scissors.

The company has also reported a phenomenal Distributor response since launch with enquiries from around the globe. This highlights a trend in different countries where Network locking is more prominent.

The website also now includes full details of sister company CallKey's Travel SIM opportunity. CallKey are the largest MVNO supplying the unique Travel SIMs, which go a long way to abolishing roaming charges. This is a white label offering, where interested Distributors can brand SIM cards as their own, and generate customised tariff rate sheets. SIM cards come with a +44 UK mobile number and offer free incoming calls in over 50 countries, as well as discounted outbound.

Dealing primarily in the B2B sector, the company specialise in the analysis and eventual reduction in mobile telecommunications spend. The concept of SIMable was initiated with businesses in mind who change Network Operator and wish to utilise their existing locked handsets.
