Hi mobile phone fans and users ....
I have this phone from 07.2015
Phone is great BUT :
1 battery is a crap - now use a nokia bl-5c from grandma old phone . From the begining phone last one day not much !
2 Second sim has a bad time management : when is used intensively it may occur low quality audition . This means this phone is no 1/2 of dual sim - dual standby
Using only SIM 1 3 G is ok
3 No dedicated software for backup , small android kernel . No support on CAT 'S websites.
Half a selling price was a better choice ...
Do not recommend , use China Blackview rugged smartphone
"dual sim" here means dual micro sim with one of them wcdma compatible, the other is gsm only

This is not a smartphone, so how did you plan on running whatsapp?
Erkis, keep warning, 2G is more dangerous system for radioactivity exposed.
Just received my B30..................... no watapp??? Cmon CAT you can do better than that surely!!
To get better battery life switch to 2G at settings so battery last up to 1 week
The B30 phone is a piece of Junk. Cat should go back to building big machines. Battery life is poor. Phone is rubbish. Just wasted money on this unit.
I have just buy the cat b30 . The battery life is lasting 8hr with out calling. The phone is a joke.
How the hell do you set up MMS on this phone! I'm on BT mobile, have had SIM settings sent and stored, checked the MMS settings and internet settings and all correct but still wont send and receive MMS! even bought a PAYG SIM from GiffGaff but still not working?? phone calls and SMS work fine??? please help as i'm pulling my hair out!
Jon, 22 Aug 2015i just bought a cat b30 and it is actually drinking the battery. I have to charge it after 8 h... morei have just bought a b30 and have the same problem. drinks battery very annoyed just have contacted the person whom i bought it from.
10 days in standby... What a joke: with only one SIM card, phone not moving (just sitting in one place), after a 12 hours full charging the standby is only 6 days until the phone stops because of flat battery.
Just bought this phone and can clearly see that you need a Micro-SIM. My previous simcard is a Mini-SIM but with a small chipsize so you can cut it to Nano-SIM if needed. What I am wondering about is if I can cut this to Micro-SIM and be able to use it even though the chip size is too small compared to the connection it has to touch?
I'm not talking about the size of the plastic around but the chip that makes the connection. I tried ordering one of these old Micro-SIMs but seems they don't make them anymore?
