You can recieve calls and messages simultaneously, but at a time, only one SIM allows you to make calls or send messages. You have to choose one SIM as default. Suppose you choose SIM-1 as default. Then, when you get a message to SIM-2 and try to reply, the reply goes from SIM-1. If you want to reply from SIM-2 itself, then you have to choose SIM-2 as default, where the phone reboots automatically, and then reply.
I bought a C5212 recently. It has only standby Dual SIM feature, which means we cannot make calls or send messages from both SIMs simultaneously, but can only receive calls and messages simultaneously. We have to choose a default SIM from the two and can make calls from that one only. To make calls from the other SIM, we have to go to SIM manager and choose the other SIM as default, after which the phone reboots in 2 to 3 minutes. Now, the second SIM will allow us to make calls and first one will not. In case this feature is not as I have written above, please comment so that I can know if there is a way to use both SIMs for calls without selecting one as default and rebooting the phone.
