The iPhone 5 is rumored to include a Qualcomm Gobi cellular/data chipset that allows for both GSM and CDMA connections in the same phone

The iPhone 5 is rumored to include a Qualcomm Gobi cellular/data chipset (just like the Verizon iPhone) that allows for both GSM and CDMA connections in the same phone. Perhaps this is what they mean by dual SIM-cards? Perhaps, but they add that the iPhone 5 will support dual phone lines. Dual Phone lines come in handy if you have a personal and business line that you want coming to the same phone.

According to iDealsChina the iPhone 5 will not hold one, but two SIM cards to support dual phone lines. This sounds very strange and we think iDealsChina could have misinterpreted the information from their source.

What if you could have service from both Verizon and AT&T in the same device, and use the service with better coverage at a respective time? Would you find this useful?

No it does not support dual sim as its supports 3g and as it is costly too having 2 3g sims in phone will make the user spend much money on his dual internet bills and he would need to spend almost some percent of his money for 3g service

The Verizon iPhone 4 got the tear-down treatment today, revealing a Qualcomm Gobi chip that is both GSM and CDMA compatible . Since the Verizon iPhone doesn’t have a SIM card slot, it can’t be used on GSM networks, but there’s talk the upcoming iPhone 5 could use the same chip and offer true dual-mode functionality. And the updated smartphone might not even need a smartphone to accomplish this. REGARDS- ANKIT

No, the iPhone only has space for one SIM card. The iPhone 4 only holds one Micro SIM card. Creative developers have enabled dual and multiple-SIM solutions for the iPhone, however these are unofficial hacks that likely violate the Apple warranty and cellular carrier terms of service. Having more than one SIM card makes it possible to use one iPhone on multiple carriers or have two phone lines on the same mobile device.

Actually, the iPhone doesn't support dual sim cards. But there is a Dual SIM Adapter available for this purpose. It is priced around 30$ for which you can get the adapter and a case that can host dual full size SIM cards on the back of an iPhone 4, while running an adapter to the iPhone 4's micro SIM slot. You can then switch between the two sim cards from the iPhone's own settings menu, though unfortunately you can't use both sim cards simultaneously.
