Motorola's Moto G is not just a great dual- SIM smartphone; it's one of our favourite smartphones. And with the announcement of the first Windows dual-SIM Phone, the Nokia Lumia 630, Android Advisor has compiled five reasons why the often overlooked perk could save you pounds.
1. The benefits of two plans
Di fferent plans o ffer di fferent benefits. Having a
smartphone that supports two SIM cards will allow
you to milk the value of both plans, while keeping
your minimum monthly spend low. One SIM card
could have a great plan for data, while the other
could be great value for voice calls.
2. Who wants to carry a
personal- and a business
The novelty of
carrying two phones
quickly wears thin.
Having a dual-SIM
phone allows you
to carry one phone that can
accommodate your personal
and your business line.
3. The Stinson
Dual-SIM smartphones can carry two SIM cards,
which means one mobile can receive calls from two
di erent numbers. People who don't want certain
phone numbers showing up on one bill can use the
other SIM card to make phone calls.
4. Global roaming
Going overseas? A dual-SIM smartphone is an easy
way to keep receiving messages from people at
home. Purchase a local SIM and pop it in the second
tray to avoid nasty international roaming charges
when you call people in the country you're visiting.
5. In case of emergency
The major mobile operators cover most – but
definitely not all – of the UK. Having the SIM cards
of two networks is like having a safety net. If one SIM
card isn't picking up a signal, there's a chance the
other one could.
