With the correct firmware installed, the dual sim will work. The dual sim was not working on my phone at first and Cat UK told me that my phone will not work as a dual sim phone. But the Cat supplier where I bought the phone simply loaded a diffirent firmware version and it has been working perfectly since then.

hans, 02 Oct 2016how to enable 2 sim cards, mine see only 1 sim, i have inserted 2 working sims but only works ... moreWhat appears as a dual sim variant, may well be a single sim variant which is only for North American market. The second SIM module that you see, is installed in the phone, but it may be disabled or not working.
To check the simple way which phone model you have, look at the sticker on the top SIM slot. If it says "SD CARD", it probably is the single sim variant. If it has picture instructions for how to remove the top SIM card, then it may be the dual sim variant.
Some sellers sell the single SIM version as a dual SIM phone, but do not mention that to the customer. In the US, the single SIM variant is cheaper in general from the dual SIM model(which is not sold in the US), which is how they make profit - on the difference between prices and on the customer's unawareness.
To check the complex way if it is dual SIM model, first check to see what is the service provider band (in MHz) frequency for the country that you are in, then insert the 4G/LTE SIM card provided into the bottom slot, and turn on data and observe if the 'H' appears in the notification bar. If it does, then you should be able to insert the same SIM card into the top SIM slot and make the same observation.
If the 'H' does NOT appear in the notification bar, then it is the single sim variant.
I have a big problem with my CAT S60.
I just use one SIM on my phone ant it is inserted in the first slot.
I set the preferred network type of the first SIM in the settings menu on automatic mode.
My phone connects to the LTE network. As the LTE signal is not good in my area, the phone loses the connection often and then switches to 2G network instead of 3G and then it will not switches back to LTE when it's available. I should change the network type to 2G only or 3G only and the change it back to automatic mode to connect to LTE or I should turn the cellular data off and on to connect to the LTE.
I have a CAT S50 and it works fine in the same situation. When it loses the LTE signal, connects to 3G network and shows H or H+ and when the LTE singnal in fine, the phone switches back to LTE automatically.
I bought the phone in Iran without a warranty. I asked the CAT support team for any help and they told me I should call my original retailer and ask them if there is a problem with the phone or not.
I want to know if this is a software or hardware problem.
Is there anything I can do to solve the issue?

No real feedback on the phone. I am in the US Virgin Islands and have spent four days trying to buy the phone and get it shipped here through Expansys - the US rep for CAT. They are a bunch of idiots and I have given up. I'll get some other phone. They have been trying to tell me that the U.S. Virgin Islands are a- not in North America, and b- when I pointed out the stupidity iof that comment, that they were not in the U.S. even though in their ordering system the Virgin Islands can be selected like any other state. I am on a luxury charter yacht and do serious wet and climate tough work so this might have been a great product for me, but apparently they don't want to actually sell it.

My CAT60 is now 1 month old and all is working just fine. Dual sim is working after a firmware update. FLIR camera works well. Used it the other day to spot isolation gaps in my roof. If you manually set or lock the max and min temperature range on the FLIR app, you will be able to detect warm/cold objects better. Camera/photo quality also very good, except for night/low light photos, flashlight works well for portrait photo's at night, but make sure to adjust the ISO setting to 100 for better clarity. Battery lasts a full day and up to the next morning with extensive use. The touchscreen is a but over sensitive and it makes typing sometimes difficult, except if you use it in landscape orientation. Wish there was a way of adjust the screen sensitivity. What I also like about this phone is that it is different from the rest in terms of looks.
hans, 02 Oct 2016hello Deon, does your S60 work already with dual sim? i also cannot get mine workingHi Hans, my dual sim is working without any issues. Rugged SA in fourways did a firmware update on my phone.
AnonD-593378, 05 Oct 2016I liked my s60 but had some major Issues and had to return it.
The battery never lasted even... moreMaybe you got faulty phone ?
At first my battery also did not last a day - that's because at first when people get new phone, they tend to play with it a lot, and new batteries need to go through several loading cycles before reaching their maximum capacity. I have had my CAT S60 about 6 weeks and now my battery lasts 3 or 4 days easily.
The FLIR image is not very sharp because it has only 80x60 pixels sensor. (0,0048 megapixels) But consider this, that even professional FLIR cameras have only 0,3 megapixels sensor and they cost about 37000 euros (about 41000 dollars)
That is why this phone uses MSX technology - using regular camera for sharpening FLIR image. (in the dark you can activate flashlight)
As for temperatures being different than actual FLIR camera - try using several actual FLIR cameras simultaneously - they all show a little different temperatures.
The result can be influenced by many things - including your fingers too close to the FLIR lens and reflecting inrfared (ir can reflect like regular light) In controlled test environment i have been able to get quite accurate readings with my phone. But that is not the true purpose of FLIR camera - true purpose is to find differences in heat dispersion and using this info to detect heat pipes, house insulation defects, and many more things.
You also said your phone was ruined by water ? This is strange, because i wash my phone under a tap every day. (gets dusty on construction). I can confirm that this phone is absolutely waterproof. So your phone was defective i guess.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2016The manual from S60 says there are two versions, My FLIR Standard and My FLIR Pro but how to t... moreI do not know about different versions, but regarding CAT S60 thermal camera - it can clearly see underfloor heating pipes or cables if they are heated. (i work on constructions and need to know where to drill holes)
So, if pipe (filled with heated water) is not thermally isolated from the wall, it is visible with thermal camera.
My only complaint after a few weeks of owning the s60 is that the aluminum cover is coming unglued from the rubber charge port cover. It happened and I sent the phone to be repaired under warranty. They considered it DOA and shipped me a brand new phone. A couple weeks later, the same problem is happening with the new phone, even though I'm now taking extra care to avoid stressing the glue holding the charge port cover together. For an otherwise great phone, this is a very frustrating design flaw.
