This SIM card-friendly iPhone case is perfect for travelers

Do you travel abroad often? Maybe it’s for business, or pleasure, or both. And if so, do you use the same unlocked iPhone everywhere you go? If you answered yes, to either question, you might want to check out the SIMPLcase.

The SIMPLcase is an ultra-slim iPhone 5 case—3mm in the center, 1mm at the edges—with a couple of cool features. In addition to protecting your phone, it can also store extra SIM cards, has a SIM tray eject tool, and more…

First, let’s talk about SIM card storage. The case has cutout slots for 3 additional SIM cards. The first run of the case will be for the iPhone 5, so that means Nano SIMs. But the developers say that an iPhone 4/4S case is in the works.

Next on the list is a built-in SIM tray eject tool. It looks like you’d expect it to, and should really come in handy as you switch between SIMs. And finally, the case can be used as a kickstand, by placing a credit card in its rear slit.

The SIMPLcase project has only raised about $5,000 so far, of its $20,000 goal. But it still has 40 days left to go. If you’d like to pick one up, a pledge of $12 or more gets on the pre-order list. They’re expected to start shipping in March.

This is yet another great example of why Kickstarter is what it is. These guys had a need for something, it didn’t exist, so they created it. And while I don’t personally need a multi-SIM card holding case, I’m sure there’s plenty that do.

What do you think of the SIMPLcase?

    I feel so honored to be the first comment. All of my hard work and dedication has paid off. Getting the top comment has been a dream of mine for many years, and i would like to thank those who have helped me along the way. First and foremost i would like to thank god for giving me this opportunity. Next i would like to thank my parents. I want to thank my friend Josh Arcaro, for being really skinny and always there for me. I would also like to thank my pet tadpole for surviving against all odds for over a week. Next i would like to thank the squirrel that lives in my backyard for climbing trees because that gives me inspiration that i need to get through the day. This is a special moment in my life and i would like to thank any of my unmentioned friends and family that have helped me along the way. This moment will be a moment that i will never forget. I just remembered a few other people i would like to thank; facebook, the fish i caught in the third grade, my light in my room bc i wouldn’t be able to see the keyboard without it, the internet for letting me go on facebook, my house because without it i would be homeless, and last but not least i would like to thank all the people out there that actually took time out of their day to read this. I cannot stress how much of a big deal to me this is. I have been trying to be the first comment on a post for years, but that has not been possible until this amazing day. Hopefully my good luck will continue, but this is undoubtedly a rare occasion. If you asked me how i did this, i would say, you can achieve anything u set your mind on. To all the kids out there reading this, i would like to tell them to follow their dreams. Being the top comment is amazing, thank you everyone

    Good news for phone thieves Once the sim card is out, findmyiphone won’t locate the phone.

      Thats why I have no passcode on my iPhone. Thieves can insert their own sim or connect to a wifi ;)
