I am looking fr a dual sim, Z3 seems good option, as far as it goes. my question is this - i have one sim for uk and one for europe, can i have one for calls and normal phone/data and one set to roaming for int calls etc, plus wifi active on both, regardless of whether ist live or simulateous? eg if i use whatsapp on both will i get message notifications for both numbers on wifi if home or data if out and about? thank you inadvance for answers!
Has anyone tested it on Three network(UK) as a second GSM calls and texts? I know that Three does not operate on 2G so would it be possible to use for example- EE sim as data LTE/3G card and Three as a calls only on a second slot?
I'm using it
Its SIM Performance is very well but only one thing is bothering me
Thatis when one of them is in calling mode, the other doesn't work and wate untill call finished; this is bad because if you are using internet in one SIM and want call by other or it rings, using Internet temporarily will cut off
I have couple of questions.
1)Does it weakens the signal strength of the SIM since its dual standby?
2) hows the battery life if u were to use ie SIM1 for phone calls and SIM2 for Internet?
Question: Since its a dual standby, does it weakens a signal strength of the two SIM cards?? I have never used dual SIM phones so i would like to know.
Josephkarthic, 13 Feb 2015Hi Everyone, Could someone please tell me if this phone is really DUAL ACTIVE phone? which... moreWell it's not Dual Active. It's a dual standby. But dont worry about missing calls. If David is still trying to call u on SIM 2 while it's in use he will still get a ring tone except that it is a call being forwarded to SIM 1 on ur device. Hope that helps. Cheers! Oh btw...since u've already waited this long why not wait for the Xperia z4 dual that'll release sometime in the next quarter.
Peter, 12 Feb 2015I've only had the phone for two days, but I have to admit after buying and using several diffe... moreAfter trying a silicone case that I'd have to keep removing everytime i docked the phone for charging, I switched to a bumper case that's readily available on some of those online shopping sites. i've never had to remove it since as it perfectly fits into the magnetic charging dock. It was so expensive either. But be careful to use a non-slippery/non-glossy skin on the back since it's made of glass to protect it from accidental falls
i have been using this phone for 2 weeks now, the only problem with it is once you switch it to LTE signal drops on the SIM card your enable LTE on to minimal or it keep disconnecting, i don't know if its just my phone or all have the same problem.
Kennyelfuego, 14 Feb 2015Does the micro SD card has its own slot or it uses Sim2 slot? Pls reply.SD card has own slot.
Does the micro SD card has its own slot or it uses Sim2 slot? Pls reply.
Could someone please tell me if this phone is really DUAL ACTIVE phone? which means if you are talking to someone on SIM1 and if someone called DAVID is calling you on SIM2 you should receive the call on SIM2 and DAVID should hear the ringing tone NOT THE WAITING TONE.
Could somebody please confirm the above scenario? I will buy this phone if thats working..thankyou.
I've only had the phone for two days, but I have to admit after buying and using several different dual SIM phones on the market, I find this one to be the best! I could be wrong, but from my research except the Huawei Mate 7, this is the only dual SIM phone that will work on 4G LTE most ANYWHERE. All of the other dual SIM phones I've looked at in Asia are missing AT&T's B4 1700 or missing certain frequencies in Asia. Other dual band phones from Samsung, Motorola, LG, Lenovo, Huawei are built missing a specific 3G or 4G band here or there for specific markets. Like I said, I'm happy to stand corrected from the forum. With respect to this phone specifically, the quality is solid, pictures have been clear, batter life great, speed is fast. It's a bit slippery, and I have yet to find a good slim silicon/rubber case for it. You can't use a standard Z3 cover because you will have a problem taking off the cover for the USB charging port. If anyone knows a website that I can find a slim cover or the 6633 dual version, I would appreciate it. If I find other problems with it, I'll report back, but so far I'm quite satisfied!
