One last question - is it possible in Android to designate Sim2 as the only data sim to be used?
Thank you again!
If you go for a MT6575 / MT6577 phone, yes you can. On those phone you have the option to choose what sim that will use data and 3G service (the other sim will operate on 2G). You can also choose to use a default sim card for SMS/Calls or to be asked for each SMS/Call.
You can see the dual sim menu that is standard for MT6577 here on the ZTE V970: ZTE V970 Review (User review)
