Good news concerning the new mediatek chipset in regard to dual sim:

With the MT6575 dual‐SIM solution, consumers will no longer have to worry about dropped calls while active data transfer is happening on either SIM card, and will experience automatic resumption of data exchange once calls on the other SIM card have ended, in addition, with the hot swap feature enabled, the SIM card can be inserted without switching off the mobile.

It's clear because it's written everywhere that sim 2 is available to receive while data run on sim1

Thank you all for feedback, first of all, I did that test:

I was downloading a lot of pictures on SIM1 so there was a huge traffic and only once of five attempts I managed to disable signal on SIM2, I got the message from my GSM provider after then, that I had one missed call.

Otherwise it worked well even if I used my SIM1 data connection, but true is that it happened, so if you are downloading big data it easily can happen. (But who did it with limited data tarification like me? )

Then I tried to make call on SIM2 only with switched 3G on SIM1 and no internet surfing (just with messengers switched on). It was OK with no problems.

Update to battery life: yesterday I finished charging at 2PM = 100%, now I am still at 20%. I used my phone a lot and 3G was on during all night and day. So 1,5 day could be a good prediction.

Regards,

Petr

I've installed FastBoot on my PC & am happy to have a go with that, but as have no real experience of doing anything with a command line I would very much appreciate step by step instructions.

Would you be so kind?

Default XT532 or U960

Hi, just before you will buy it, FET T8888 was not much bigger/heavier than motorola with twice as big resolution, display is simple perfect and I really got used to it , smaller resolution is my little setback I must say, but I had some good reasons and I needed to buy it quickly.

But there are many good comments about ZTE U960 so far and if:

- android market is fine
- google apps is fine
- 3G Europe support is fine
- true dual sim feature is inside
- some kind of brand (good fabrication) is there
- national support is OK (at least english environment)
- reasonable battery life for zte (bigger screen is real consumer), minimum one day
- no spyware inside
- no power sucking apps inside

Then it can be tough to decide!

It seems XT532 and U960 are two reasonable options - till Galaxy Y duo is launched. I am not too keen on U960 as it is too big for me and though am used to HTC Desire screen, I can live with 3.5" of XT532.

I am all the more inclined to buy XT532 now. Feedback from others would be great!

Thank you once again polvo!!

Guys, etotalk has a new promo right now. ZTE U960's price got cut --399 now plus shipping. The weird thing is that it says now that it has 8MP camera, hmmm.... I still haven't decided about it since i'm so hooked on SUPER AMOLED screens... i wonder how the phone's screen compares with a galaxy phone? anyone?

The LCD screen is a really good screen, way lbetter than the one used on Droid 3 or 4, on par with the one used on Droid/milestone 1,2, but with better white balance.

Amoleds screen are more amazing at the first look, but when you will use one of them for awhile you will realize that they are still not on par with a good LCD, looking at the color fidelity, the white balance and the durability.

Only the ZTE is full dual radio, btw looks like the XT532 has the SIM2 available when the SIM1 is doing data transfer.

Cheaper android phones , based on MTK6573 have the SIM2 unavailable when sim 1 is busy either with voice calls or data transfers.

So, I'm afraid that the re isn't the smartphone you want at the price you want (yet).

You have to look at some featurephones to have a full dual radio for a more reasonable price.

quality/price is always a problem ...

If this h t t p://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i929_galaxy_s_ii_duos-reviews-4387.php (remove spaces between http) become real in WCDMA (for now is only cdma ev-do), it will become my next definitive phone ... maybe ... regardless of the price (almost) ...

Have you tried any custom roms yet. Cyanogenmod or other custom rom support might be an important thing to consider.

Secondly, XT532 is not available at all, at least not in India. Any pointers where I can get it in India.

Also, what do you guys think about XT532 vs LG Net Dual?

I have been using XT532 for over a week now, very solid little phone by itself.

custom rom support is very limited with XT532 at the moment, Motorola's tough stand on bootloader makes it not a popular choice for the dev. also the fact that not many owners of XT532 out there.

LG Net Dual seems neck to neck with XT532. I read before at least 2 online dealers in india sells LG Net, but i cant be 100% sure as I dont live in india.

if you set ur heart on XT532, there is a ebay seller from taiwan that sells XT532 globally.

Unfortunately not quickly enough.

BTW, as far as I know, only the dual standby based on the MTK CPUs are affected by that annoying problem.

I asked to some XT532 owners to confirm that the SIM 2 is available during the data transfer over SIM1, before buying the ZTE, but no one replied to my question.
I have not had any problem on my XT532 sim 2 signal while sim 1 is on data.

While one of the sim is on call, the other one is disabled, as the phone only has 1 radio.

I think data is fine, sim 2 is clearly active (black colour in the notification bar) while sim 1 is on data. Sim 1 is up to WCDMA and Sim 2 is Edge only, that could be the reason.

Better to do a real test than guess on icons (the icons are there on affected phones too).

If you can, try to download something (or launch a speedtest) and call the sim 2 from another phone.

- You need to have a custom rom in http://bbs.malshenzu.com/thread-htm-fid-80-page-2.html, after extracting that you have all the tool you need. (you need: the Rom "U960_B13.zip"; tool "一 键 U960 root.exe" + "一 键 recovery_cn.exe" in "一 键 工具"
- Then you install the default driver of U960 (Join Me), you need to download the USB drivers for fastboot in here: Deposit Files and run it (the driver in ZTE TU960 without this, it's problem, this driver is of the other ZTE android phone ... and it is compatible with the U960 ..., you can find the driver of another ZTE android phone in ZTE home page if you failed to download ....
- Connect your phone to PC and wait full connection, before you run the tool "一 键 U960 root.exe" , after successful hack root, you download or copy the app "Rom manager" and install it on your phone, you run it on the phone and online settings "ClockworkMod recovery" with the first option (Commtiva Z71 (Boston, Blaze, and more)). You must do it because you "recovery-cn.img" based on ClockworkMod (will be much simpler if ClockworkMod support ZTE-U960 )
- You unzip tool "一 键 recovery_cn.exe" in any folder and only interested the "recovery-cn.img"
- You download the tool "ADB Made Easy (2)" in ADB Made Easy - xda-developers and install on your PC, connect your phone to PC, run the tool, select "flash recovery to phone", select path to "recovery-cn.img ", tool will automatically flash recovery to your phone, this is the Chinese version, the language of recovery is Chinese, but that's okay, you can understand, because the English version are the same
- Complete the steps that you can install custom rom, google applications (in the ROM you downloaded) and free to use your phone ...
wish you success...

Today I was downloading with SIM1 angry birds file (19 MB), while downloading I tried to make 3 calls on SIM2, all were successful, I saw when call appeared on my phone that downloading was stopped for a while and then continued again. Is it satisfying test?

LG Net Dual XT532
800 mhz ARM6 800 mhz ARM6
512 MB ROM/RAM 512 MB ROM/RAM
3.2 inch 3.2 inch
CGM 9 (ICS) Available No custom rom
200 usd 350 usd


XT532's big screen is a plus but no custom rom and high price, tilts the deal in favor of Net Dual.

However, I took Net Dual in hand and it is not very appetizing though I was comparing it with Motorola Defy+ which is not a right comparison.

The Oppo with its qwerty keyboard looks really like a dream, but is really hard to have first hand informations.

The dual sim users are used to cheap phones and usually don't mind to get something of expensive and the users used to high level phones, usually don't care about dual SIM ones.

Surely I don't like it's idiotic iphone like UI, obviously this can be fixed with a custom rom, but in the future, maybe far future.

Have a look at the official site (no mention of dual sim what so ever)

Is written everywhere that is a dual sim, since the day it was presented.

Then is possible that was an initial mistake or misunderstanding on the release notes and everyone copied them

The good part, at least for me, is that the Zte is again the best dual SIM smartphone on the market, w/o any viable contender, w/o any doubt.

i bought one month ago the xt532 from Taiwan , Yupitek. I confirm all positive feedback over this phone, and recommend it to all people who want a quite good android dual sim. Very stable, confortable and useful phone!

Hey everyone, been reading the posts heaps of good info.

Looks like for me I rather the xt532 as I can't be bothered with customising much this time, got sick of it on my last phone so the xt532 sounds like easier out of the box.

My problem is I'm with Optus so need 900/2100, is it possible to get the XT with that?

Don't think so, which means I'm stuck with the ZTE but now I have the problem that my work sim (sim 1) will undoubtedly be 128k and I don't believe I will be able to get that changed work's line on phones is: here you go, if it breaks we get you new one, but no you can't pay extra for diff phone or have this or have that etc etc.

Th solutor did you solve your 128k sim problem? (I was reading on the ETO talk page says sim 1 only accepts 64k?)

There isn't a problem with 128K sim, there is a problem with the 128K SIMs from Vodafone Italy, anything else I tried works perfectly, no matter if 128k or not.

BTW I haven't solved the problem yet, I tried everything obvious and less obvious.

I tried the B10, B12 and B13 based ROMs,I tried even a turbosim clone, and I tried replacing the android radio and SIM related libs with the ones taken from the Gsmart from gigabyte, and other single SIM phones.

Using the libs from a single SIM phone, the second SIM became (unsurprisingly) inactive, but the first one wasn't fixed (worked with 64k only).

So I'm reasonably sure that the problem is not in the android part of the phone.

The problem must be in the baseband section, so pretty hard to discover w/o the help of ZTE technicians or from a very skilled developer with a very good knowledge of that section.

I don't know why etotalk mention the 64k SIMs in general, likely is because is pretty hard to explain what SIM work and what doesn't, but is possible they had other feedback from users from other countries.

I asked about that notice on their website, but I got no reply so far.

P.S. I still haven't tried an updated baseband, it's available on some Chinese forums as (hidden) attachment, the problem is that, usually, being registered there is not enough to see the hidden sections

mmm, so you reckon I'm reasonable safe with my Telstra 128k sim in slot 1?
Is there a way to check prior to forking out 400$?

I believe you're reasonably safe, but not 100% safe.

I remember the N900 had problems with the SIMs from three UK and three Sweden, but worked fine with anything else, including the SIMs from Three Italy, Three Australia, Three HK and so on...

So my guess is that those Vodafone.IT SIMs are more like an exception rather than a rule, but I can't exclude other not working SIMs given there are hundreds of providers, each one with SIMs built from different companies, and coming from different generations.

What about inverting the SIMs, I can't because both SIMs are identical, are you in the same condition ?

what does inverting the sims mean?

I currently have my personal phone number (data/personal calls)
and work mobile (no data, just work phone calls)

edit: hope this inverting sims isn't a solution as I just hit to go button @ etotalk

edit 2: just realised what you meant by inverting the sims. you really could of used the word switched, I assumed you meant something fancy I didn't know about. Nah I can't switch them as I only have data on one of the sims and can't change that. (again the whole work not allowing individuality on the mobiles thing)

Really interesting. Seems to me, the only one "proper" manufacturer with DualSim phone. Donīt want to offend Viewsonic or Gigabyte or any other with this one, but .... we know

Sure it will by nice to have some reviews and experience with it, sooo.. anyone? As I said in my previous post - the only truly choice for me ist Dual Sim Dual Standby. Nothing else is no "real" DualSim.
hi ,I was a proud user of NEXUS S /ICS 4.03 until I bought Dual sim Lg P698 in Russia last month ..super phone ,although it is a bit small in size after the nexus S ,I am very happy with it .gingerbread 2.3.4 is running like a gem ,BATTERY life compared to Chinese made dual/androids ,it is very good, lasting 2 days . Now I ,do not know what to do with my Nexus S ? Very comfortable to carry one smartphone with dual sims.. till my first Nexus one ,i have always used android phones ,and now will be looking forward to bigger sized android phone with ICS ..soon

Haha, please take in account that my poor English is used to get worse in the early morning, Italy has the bad habit of being on the other side of the planet, so was around 5am when I used that false friend word.

Ok, my point was that (likely) the worst case scenario is not using two phones, but using the sim in the other slot. You can use data on sim 1 or sim 2, obviously on sim 1 you will get GPRS/EDGE only.

Anyway I hope you will never have the problem at all

Hey Firuz, wanted to know exactly the same. I had posted the same question in a different thread.

http://androidforums.com/android-lounge/500860-lg-optimus-net-dual.html

Any reviews would be really (greatly) appreciated.

You can use the market fron PC even with crap chinese clones.

The only problem is the error returned trying to intsall a payd app (even an already payd one).

With that ZTE there aren't problems at all.

Market works just like on an HTC or Motorola phone.

Overall I'm very pleased with the phone. It took me just a couple of minuts to get both sim's working properly. To make the G3 internet connection took me a little longer, but by trial and error I was able to manage.

The touch screen gives a good response and the battary life seems ok.
I've used it very intensively for 1 day and at the end of the day the battery still had 60% left...
The pre-installed flashplayer works, it's no problem to view items from youtube.

The only problem I encounter right now is that the Android Market is not working properly.
On my request the supplier already rooted the phone and installed the market a couple of app's..
I can open the market but as soon as I wanted to accept&download something from the market it displays the following message:
"Sorry, the application market has stopped unexpectedly. please try again"
I also bought and started working with my P698 2 weeks ago in Moscow .Very happy with . using 2.3.4 from the time being ,all is smooth .especially working with 2 sim .cards . I was a proud owner of a Nexus S with ics.but now I do not need it,except for the big screen and ics ... .looking forward to something Android 4inc+ ICs ,DUAL SIM of course .
