.
I can confirm: the stop sign is in the icon, so very small, but it is there. For me it is not much of an issue: I can only talk to one person at the same time. And I get the "missed call" message when called called on SIM2 after hanging up my call on SIM1.
Didn't check the data connection yet on SIM2 while calling on SIM1.

Here some first remarks from my side:
battery is ok: one full day at work (but in the evening playing a lot) and it was stil 15% before I got to sleep

Build quality very good. Feels good in the hand

on/off button: a little small for my fingers

Google apps: working well!

GPS and WiFi: both smooth and fast

After 3 days of use I had to reset it once: after receiving a call, the display did not show up anymore. So I had to remove battery.

somehow I do not seem to able to get any data connection at all. maybe I am missing a setting somewhere (I don't have a good dataplan yet, so I hardly use it, that's why I tried so late). So I cannot try yet.
EDIT: Had to enter provider settings manually

Hi All!
Great to find this forum when I have changed jobs and will be living overseas for next two years. For last 5 years, I have been using Nokia 'plain old cell' and have had no data or web, so now I wan to buy best UNLocked, GSM/WCDMA Dual-SIM phone I can with 8Mp camera, Big display, Fast proc, 32Gb Mem exp and decent battery life. I found this:h**p://www.cnokfan.com/x18i-3g-phonegoogle-android-234-os41inch-touch-screenwifianalog-tvwcdmagsm_p4387.html. Please tell me what you think, If it will work in So America, NZ, Australia, Europe, Asia, India... and if I should buy 2-3 for family at (!) $155.00 + $20 post each. - PayPal of course :-)

- Maybe you know a better one?

Thanks!

I can confirm now: data connection on SIM1 switches off when calling on SIM2. Once the call is finished, the icon and the connection return.

gonna be a tough one unfortunately.

Motorola s quite stuck up with their boot lock.

from what I gathered, XT531 is already difficult to root, XT532 is effectively the dual sim version of XT531, unless the 531 gets wider dev support its hard to see that for XT532.

The best bet is wait for XT532 go widely available outside mainland China, but i m not aware of any immediate solution i m afraid.

Guys, I found an online seller of the XT532 in Hong Kong:
AST Global - Products [Motorola XT532]
Good thing is they have PayPal, and at 2100 HKD it is significantly cheaper than the ones on ebay (yupitek) and elsewhere (etotalk)
Bad thing is they haven't listed any of the specifications, so I'm not sure if this the UMTS 850/2100 or UMTS 900/2100 (makes a big difference in Australia), and this could possibly be the chinese ROM with google apps barred.

Anyways, I sent them an email with the above queries, so I'll let you know what they respond with.

i found (in XDA and chinese forums) two ways to root the xt532, are the same methods used for the Moto XT615 model (Android 2.3.7) : one is to use the famous XDAdev's Superoneclick latest version 2.3.3. (include Motorola ADB Patching) with (or without as told by one user) SUTLR_v1.7.5 and RootD3 , the second is to use MotorolaOneClickRoot developed by Framework43 and Psouza4 .
Be sure to have the correct driver for PC. Maybe this can be useful

I ordered 1 unit of XT532 from ebay Yupitek( ebay id:wifigadget88) last week and it reached me around 6days after I ordered.
Service and delivery speed is very excellent.
I checked the spec of XT532 and it is HSDPA 850/2100Mhz
XT532 supports Android market, Gmail and Google Maps without any problem.

One of my friends is Arabic and hopes to use Arabic interface on XT532.

Does any one know hot to makes Arabic display on XT532 ?

This is another known release that's officially on the shelf, in India that is. Not sure if it delivers to anywhere outside India. The two online store links below:

Buy LG Optimus Net Dual Sim-P698 (Black) at Best Price in India - Also find Specifications, Photos, Features & Reviews

http://www.flipkart.com/mobiles/lg/optimus-net-dual-p698-itmd4gcykfypace5?pid=mobd4gcxwjdbubaq&affid=INGaur av


From what I read about, this is the same as the LG P698 that went on sale in China not long ago. LG China's web link:LG P698 ????- ?????Android 2.3 ?????800MHz CPU?1500mAh ??????11.7mm ?????3.2 HVGA?????? - LG ????

However, I think the Indian version offer full Google Apps support, where the Chinese version offers no Google Apps support at the moment.

LG's India website has clearly listed some Google Applications (Gmail, G talks, Google Search, Youtube...) under "Extra Features" and "Communications". Link attached for comparison:
http://www.lg.com/in/mobile-phones/all-phones/LG-dual-sim-phones-P698.jsp

Also, just noticed there s ebay from taiwan based seller offering P698 that looks like similar to the Indian version.

Root almost any Android phone with Unlock Root (One-click solution) | AndroidOS.in

I tried the first 4 but all result in non-understandable chinese pages or hotfile links that do not exist anymore. If someone can provide updated links for the files needed, it would be great.
The fifth one claims success but during the process the logging states: fail to copy superuser.apk. access forbidden.

The last one results in: "failed to get shell root"
So no workable solution yet

Default back button of XT532

Although the XT532 is running smoothly and fast in general (fast compared to my HD Mini converted to froyo) there seems to be a hick up every now and then with the back button. It sometimes seems to stop responding. So if you want to go back within the application in which this happends, you have to kill it. Or just wait, normally it gets back to normal wihtin a minute. But still anoying. Is there anyone out there with the same experience (or better, a solution)?
thx

@ helmutderhaas,

I have a Simvalley SP-80. It is a nice and comfortable phone. Although the specs say UMTS , there is highspeed download (7.2). A larger RAM and ROM would be nice. All in all, a good dual sim

I checked the internet and found there is a XT532 user who uses MOTO XT615 root process on XT532 and it works perfectly.

I have uploaded the Root process and related files to 4share website.
You can download from below URL.
XT532 ROOT.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

Motorola XT 532 Root document:
Motorola XT532 Root process.pdf - 4shared.com - document sharing - download

Please make a testing on your XT532 and feedback for your testing result.

Indeed it works! Great and thank you!
Some additions to the process listed in the pdf:
1) first install the proper drivers (they are in the zip from the previous post) and enable USB debugging on phone (settings/applications/development)
2) install SUT1.75, it is in the zip file from the previous.

3) Run SUT1.75, choose the corresponding file (FXX_PR3_NV.xml) which is in the root.zip in the zip file from the previous post, when "Task 2 of 2 finished", click "Finish",
then your phone reboots
4) run superoneclick (also in the zip), press root and voila, your XT532 is rooted

Question Motorola XT532 or LG P698?

I was very tempted to buy the XT532 but it really seems as if this phone is not dual sim active.

LG's P698 (sometimes also called "Optimus Net Dual") seems to be full dual active. In one description it is said that you can receive and even take calls on line 2 if you have an active call on line 1.

Here's a comparison between these 2 phones. Technically, they're almost identical, the Motorola does have a slightly larger screen and considerably more internal storage memory, though.

So, the motorola seems to be slightly ahead if it not were for the full dual sim functionality. What do you think? Which of the 2 would you prefer and why?

sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this phone is quite rubbish.
I tried it for a few days, though it looks decent on the outside, inside of the phone is below acceptable standard. The UI is slow and not responsive. In fact, its not even possible to install most apps on this phone.

again, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but i think you should start looking into the return policy

The P698 has smaller screen but it also has higher pixel density, so I'd say the display quality is not far from XT532. It is also smaller and lighter than the XT532.

I m not sure if P698 is dual active though as it only has one antenna which is essential to dual active.

I read somewhere that the P698 has 2 IMEI numbers. Doesen't this autmatically qualify for 2 GSM modules and therefore dual active mode? Maybe I'm wrong here, I'm no expert...

Polm, did you already receive the phone?

If i m not wrong all dual sim phones need to have 2 IMEI numbers for the two sim to be operating at the same time, that's just a pre-requisit for dual-sim anything, be it dual standby or dual active.

any apps that demands processing powers that's more than basic phone features, including most games, even the testing app such as Quadrant and Linpack. And the UI was very slow in general.

Not sure if you have noticed the Processor speed was not listed on the specs. This is the case even for the official website. http://www.alcatelonetouch.com/global-en/products/smartphones/ot-918d.html

I did a hardware testing when having the phone and the clock speed was undetectable. That's when I concluded the quality was below standard and returned mine to Alcatel.

IT would appear that you are incorrect. I have experience of two dual sim androids, both of which only have a single IMEI.

As a matter of interest, Bruno Martins is working on building a ROM for the G11i Pro, sold by etotalk, which includes gingerbread 2.3.5

He has posted this news:

In this new Android 2.3.5 ROM there is a huge improvement: SIM2 is still reachable even if there's an active data connection on SIM1.

Default Zte u960

Hi
I booght it by Etotalk for US$466.00 all inclusive. The phone come with chinese language :-(. I'm danish ;-). I succeeded to change it to english after a while. The phone is very fast and smooth and SIM2 i working with 3G (europe).

BUT there is a BIG problem. Android Market crashing always with this error: 'the process android.process.media has stopped unexpectedly'. Also if I use browser. I have tried many versions of Android Market and some guides on Internet. Same error. So I can't get any applications from the Market. Because of that I think that the ZTE U960 is useless. There is some others functions who also crash.

I have also tried af factory reset. Same problems.

Manual I can install apps. whitout problems :-).

there is a program with the phone 'JOIN ME' who should could make contact with the phone but it can't see the phone and I can't se the phone's memory card in my computer with Windows 7 32 bit.

I send Etotalk an e-mail 3 days ago and they went back that Etotalk's engineers is working at the problem. I hope that something happend soon.

Anyway. I would make af video and put it on youtube later this week so everybody can se how fast it is etc.

Any question then ask me :-)

It is not an Android phone so no access to Market but to Samsung apps. It runs on Samsung OS
The specs look OK. Low memory 80MB limits the number of contacts. The screen is a bit small for my taste. But if it meets your needs, it seems a fair phone. I have included the specs her. You might also want to check here too as they differ slightly:
