  1. 1

    Buy a Dual SIM card adaptor kit, there are specific kits for specific models. Find the one that goes with your model of Blackberry.

  2. 2

    Switch your phone off and remove the battery. Open the adaptor kit and place the cutting stick on the table. Place the cutting sticker on top of the SIM card.

  3. 3

    Cut the SIM card very carefully, following the guidelines, and make sure you are cutting the outside edge of the SIM. Do the same thing with your other SIM card.

  4. 4

    Put the SIM cards down on the stencil that came with the kit. Cut off any frayed edges.

  5. 5

    Place one SIM card into your phone to see if it works, then do the same with the second one.

    Peel off the adaptor's protective sheet. The protective sheet is the clear plastic film that protects the adaptor from getting scratched. Slot both SIM cards in the areas that are clearly marked on the adaptor.

  7. 7

    Push the adaptor together carefully. Push the adaptor carefully into the SIM card slot in the BlackBerry. The phone should now work as a dual SIM card phone in standby.
