Dual Sim Phone
« on: September 21, 2012, 07:23:56 pm »
For various reasons I use two phones.

One is O2 as this is the best at wrok, and Orange because the est of th efamily is Orange.
Both are simply PAYG

What I want is a cheap dual sim phone that has both active, i.e. it will take a call on either sim.

Anyone had experience or can recommend a phone?

You can't get a phone that will have both SIMs active, you will have to switch between them manually meaning that if you are on O2, the Orange (now Everything Everywhere) will be switched off as far as the network goes.

Interesting...

This is what I need to know. I was under the impression that more modern ones could do this.

For instance the Samsung E2152 claims dual standby, which according to the blurb provide the ability to have 2 active SIM simultaneously, using only one transceiver.

It will switch to the other SIM when there's no NW coverage.
