Question about Cell Phones
Welcome to FixYa
The phone features a dual SIM mechanism that allows you have 2 SIM cards in your phone simultaneously.You can make or receive calls with whichever SIM you choose as long as there is call credit so essentially, you will have redundancy in terms of service – if you are out of credit on one SIM, you can use the other SIM card or if there is no service on one service provider, there may be service on a different provider.Other noteworthy features are Mobile TV (does not work in the US), dual Bluetooth (so you don’t need one Bluetooth headset for each line), MP3 and FM radio, a 2 mp digital camera. Lastly, this is currently the only dual SIM handset on the market with FCC approval. I hope this Link[See this video] can Help you.Also check this Link Thanks for Connecting FixYa..

company that sells and rents mobile phones to international travelers, is currently featuring the National Geographic Duet travel D888 phone, the first FCC-approved handset that supports two SIM cards. The Duet D888 phone comes with National Geographic's prepaid SIM card, which offers free incoming cards in more than 70 countries and outgoing calls at competitive rates in 200+ countries.
The multiband GSM phone works with mobile networks on six continents--and because it's "unlocked," you can use it with a SIM card from your existing GSM carrier (such as AT&T or T-Mobile) as well as the National Geographic talk abroad multi-country SIM card or single-country cards from Cellular Abroad and local vendors. (The price for the phone plus the Talk Abroad SIM card is US $179, which includes approximately 30 minutes of outbound calling time.)
The Duet includes other features for travelers, such as dual-line Bluetooth, a camera, an FM radio, mobile TV (outside the U.S.), a plug-in memory card, and National Geographic content such as travel videos and ringtones. However, the phone's real claim to fame is its support for two SIM cards, which can be useful in several ways:
I should mention that I've been using Cellular Abroad's multiband phones, single-country SIM cards, and first-generation talk abroad package for more than five years. Having an international mobile phone in my pocket offered a lifeline to home (and made it far simpler to rebook my homebound flight) when a minor stroke induced by the strap of a heavy camera bag pressing against my neck landed me in an
Should you buy the Duet D888 phone? I'd say that depends mostly on how much you value the convenience of having two SIM cards. (If you're an infrequent mobile-phone user like me, you may be just as happy with a simple, minimalist, big-buttoned cell phone from the early 2000s--providing you're willing to live with incredulous stares from today's more sophisticated phone users.)
Thank you and thanks for using fixya.
