    Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

    Using multiple SIM cards

    Your device works with either one or two SIM cards inserted. You get incoming communication to both SIM cards and you can select from which number you want to place outgoing communication. Before you can use both SIM cards, you need to enable them and select the SIM card that will handle data traffic.

    You can forward calls that come in on SIM card 1 to SIM card 2 when SIM card 1 is unreachable, and vice versa. This function is called Dual SIM reachability. You must enable it manually. See Forwarding calls.
