Hi there,

 

I am thinking of getting a dual sim Microsoft Lumia 640 with two other numbers on it for my two businesses. If I get a dual sim phone, will it say which number/sim the call is for? This is so I can answer the call as a different company eg. I will answer the phone as "Hello this is (A buissiness)". A quick reply would be much appericiated. Thanks.

If you have a dual sim phone then you will have two number and two accounts.

Let's say you have a giffgaff sim and a vodafone sim.

If you get called on the giffgaff sim then the call will indicate which sim slot it is on.

HI Jev. The phone will indicate which SIM/operator the call is being received on.

You will probably have to import one from France as they don't seem dual sim in the UK. Microsoft do have a house to use dial sim on windows phone 8.1 tutorial on their website however, this should show use exactly how it works

Hi everybody,

 

Thanks for all the quick replies. I will take this into consideration and think about buying the phone now! By the way, if anyone is looking for a cheap Microsoft Lumia 640, i've found one on mobicity for only £119.99 here. And it is in the UK.

 

Thanks

Hi there.  Mobicity are fronted in the UK but they are not a UK organisation.  Have you seen the trust pilot reviews:

https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/mobicity.co.uk

 

Also you need to check it is EU stock otherwise no warrenty, i would suspect HK stock.  They are also showing out of stock too.
