How do Dual Sim phones work?

    Don't they drain the battery?

    If you have 2 different sim carriers / networks don't they need two radios constantly searching?

    If you have a decent data allowance on one sim, and a tidy allowance on t'other can you swap your data source?

    I'm considering one as a needed second phone, but also as a handy single device for both numbers when hiking or days out. Also my Nokia 7 Plus is having charging issues.

    I'm thinking of a Nokia 5.3, dual sim only (cheap - good spec, 4000 battery) or a used Motorola. I'll probably use one sim most of the time. Dual Sims are very popular here, but I don't know anyone with one.

    Answers on a postcard to Old Fogie, London - - or on this forum if you wish. :thinking: :)
