(i). You can receive calls on either sim. Both are active.
(ii) When you make/receive calls the software shows which sim is being used.
(iii). There's a default sim which is used to make phone calls. But if you'd like to use the other sim - * go to contacts * , then press the change sim button on the right hand of the mobile. Voila - the other sim is selected. This is the tricky part to figure out at first as you can't select sims unless you go to contacts and then press the button !!
It reboots if you change the default sim in the 'sim selection manager' - although one doesn't need to use this option often due to (iii) above.

Roland, 18 Mar 2010Yes Cucci, it is possible to use mp3 as sms tone. just go to phone menu-settings-phone profile... moreTo select an mp3 ringtone, if the mp3 track is on your CARD (MUSIC FOLDER), you can set it as ringtone for Caller ringtone for Sim1 or 2 or even as message alert for sim1 or 2 as below:
Settings - phone profiles - normal - options - edit - Voice call ringtone (separately for sim1 or 2) or New message for sim1 or 2 - Voice call ringtone - select Music - options - more - select options - 2. more.
Now open your external card - music. Your mp3 files will be listed for you to select the tune you want.
You can even select individual mp3 files for every single contact as below:
Edit contact - ringtone - 3 music - options - 2 more - card - music.
Voila - there you have all the ringtone settings. I wish Samsung had given all this in the manual. Difficult for Nokia - Ericsson users to handle but otherwise a superb phone - used it now for almost a month.

B S, 15 Mar 2010i am facing pc synchranisation with 5212, how to solveDear B S
I was also facing this and asked three times but could not get any reply finally I deleted all contacts from phone and reloaded and found if we assign any photo ID music then we will get error so you also check and remove photo ID it will sync.
I am 100% satisfied with phone but 100% dis satisfied with PC Studio it even takes minute in refreshing/loading messages in system even phone will show faster then this App. and message also it supports only 160 chr. which is old generation?
this phone is not showing picture messages sent from nokia phone and indicating them as 'incompatible messages" can any one tell how to receive such picture messages properly in this phone
...my wife using tis SS ,send -receive but waste on many features. Whoever like her,office clerk, should try " H2O V816" a good cheap Chinese fone.You'll get a 2.8"touchscreen,FM,,Duosim,TV,MP3+MiSD,2.0MP (?)camera,VDO clip etc. at USD 80.00.Hate only have to charge battery quite often!!
