Dual Stand By: It simply means that your mobile will be in connection with both mobile service providers at the same time and you can either place or receive a call on either of the mobile numbers. But, as you are busy with one number, the other number goes "Not reachable"

Dual Active: Your calling party will never hear "Not reachable" message if he calls you on second mobile number when you are busy on talking on first number. He will be just on "waiting" that time ....

Reason: Dual Active mobiles use TWO processors to handle both SIM where Dual Stand By mobiles uses only ONE processor to handle both SIM

i thought i will get the answer on wiki....but no 1 has answered it yet:(The difference between a dual ACTIVE sim and a dual STANDBY sim cellphone is in the ease in switching sim cards.In the dual ACTIVE sim cellphone, the user can easily change from sim1 to sim2 in one press of a switch. User can return to sim1 again by just pressing the switch sim key again.But in the dual STANDBY sim cellphone, the user has to do the following:1. User presses switch key to change from sim1 to sim2;2. User has to specify that the new default sim is sim2;3. Cellphone will show message that the change in default sim will restart the phone, and asks for a confirmation from the user;4. Once the user confirms, cellphone restarts, and user waits for the cellphone to become ON again;5. Once the cellphone is ON, user can use the cellphone using sim2.In case the user wants to change back from sim2 to sim1 again, the user has to go through the above-mentioned steps once more.Thus, a dual ACTIVE sim cellphone is more convenient to use.

UART is abbrevation for Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter.Dual sim phone usually need to set up UART. You can choose Sim1 or Sim2.when the phone is dual sim cards,dual standby: if you choose Sim1, then Sim1 may have more functions than Sim 2. For example, some phones do not support dual blueteeth, and at that time only one card can own this function.

N, it is not possible to convert the iPhone 4s to a dual sim.

User Avatar

Absolutely ! I have a dual-SIM phone, but only use ONE SIM card in it. The phone simply alerts me that SIM 2 is missing when it's first switched on.

There is nothing like a dual sim card, but rather a dual sim card phone. A phone with two sim card slots, allowing you to carry two numbers and switch from one to the other. This is super popular in China.

Apparently you can have just one sim card even if the phone is dual sim compatible.EDIT: 'Dual SIM' - simply gives the user the option to use two different numbers in one handset. It's a users choice - not mandatory.

User Avatar

No. They only give you dual sim slots so you can have a vodaphone and a telecom sim in it at the same time or any other network. But you can have only one sim in it at a time
