    Using a Dual SIM device

    A Dual SIM device enables you to do the following:

    • Receive incoming communications via both SIM cards.
    • Select the number from which to send outgoing communications, or have the option to select a SIM card each time you place a call.
    • Forward calls received via SIM 1 to SIM 2 when SIM 1 is unreachable, and vice versa. This function is called Dual SIM reachability. You must enable it manually.

    Before using multiple SIM cards, you need to enable them and select a SIM card which will handle data traffic.

    Hint

    A Dual SIM device works with either one or two SIM cards inserted.

    To enable or disable the use of two SIM cards

    1. Find and tap Settings > Network & internet > Advanced > Dual SIM.
    2. Tap the SIM 1 and SIM 2 switches to enable or disable the SIM cards.

    To rename a SIM card

    1. Find and tap Settings > Network & internet > Advanced > Dual SIM.
    2. Select a SIM card and enter a new name for it.
    3. Tap OK.

    To select which SIM card handles data traffic

    1. Find and tap Settings > Network & internet > Advanced > Dual SIM > Cellular data.
    2. Select the SIM card you want to use for data traffic.

    To set the default SIM card for placing a call

    1. Find and tap Settings > Network & internet > Advanced > Dual SIM > Calls.
    2. Select an option.

    To enable the Dual SIM reachability function

    1. Find and tap Settings > Network & internet > Advanced > Dual SIM > Dual SIM reachability.
    2. Under Dual SIM reachability, tap the switch to enable the function.
    3. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the procedure.

    Hint

    If the Dual SIM reachability function does not work after you enable it, check that you have entered the phone numbers correctly for each SIM card. In some cases, the numbers are detected automatically during setup. Otherwise, you are prompted to enter them manually.
