Would I recommend crap to you? ;-)
Anyway please note this is a test-adapter not designed for rough trade every 
day use. Also the receptacle on phone is designed for 500 rounds of 
insert/plug. There were no tests done on what will break after those 500 
plug-actions. Might be the adapter doesn't click in anymore, may also turn 
out it's the switch that fails to connect to *internal* antenna when no jack 
plugged. Be warned!

opening the card-holder.
