Problem solved, as in option 2:

I fear that having two GSM modules does not make sense in a general
phone. (Despite the fact that I do have SIMs from two countries ;) )

> 2. Have a slot for a second SIM card, and make the owner choose which card to activate when turning on the phone. (I've heard there are some existing phones that do this.)
> 3. Have a "storage" (i.e. no connectors) slot for a second SIM card, and make the owner switch the locations of the SIM cards to activate the other one.  (This at least solves the
