    I know all that- bought the phone from Natl Geographic. Problem is the manual is hardly readable with NO diagrams of where anything is on this phone. Can you find a diagram or more info on how to use it???

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:

  • You can use the National Geographic SIM card (or a single-country SIM card) for outgoing calls and for free incoming calls from friends and family while traveling, but other people--such as business callers--will still be able to reach you via your regular number if you've enabled global roaming for your domestic phone plan.
  • If you plan to spend considerable time in one country, you can use the National Geographic SIM card in one slot (for incoming calls and calls from other countries) and a single-country SIM card in the other slot (for cheap outgoing calls and free incoming local calls within the country where you're doing most of your travel).
  • When you're back in the United States, you can use the D888 as a combined "two numbers in one" personal and business phone if you have accounts with carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile that use the international GSM technology standard.
In 2009, I tested the Duet D888 on two separate trips: a cruise in Scandinavia, and another cruise in the Eastern Mediterranean. I encountered only one minor problem, which was easily rectified by turning on "extended roaming" for Italy, as suggested by Cellular Abroad's customer support. Otherwise, the phone and the current-generation National Geographic Talk Abroad SIM card worked perfectly, once I figured how to open the phone and insert the SIM card. (The instruction manual should have included the sentence, "Don't be so nervous about breaking the phone when you slide off the battery cover.")
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.

I plug the USB from the D888 to my laptop (Toshiba Satelitte with Windows Vista) and nothing happens. The USB button is turned on.

Not a solution but a question that might get you closer to resolving this. Have you attempted to connect to any other computer with your D-888. Did this work?

D888 recorder/mixer wont boot up. Screen says "power on failure" initialize" appears that hard drive has failed. though I hear it running

The hard drive has probably failed. In spite of it rotating, the head servo and electronics has to work. I would recommend testing the drive in a computer to see if it works. You will likely have to reformat it after if it does work. FIRST look for obvious things in the D888 like cable that is partially off or loose.

I am trying to unlock my lgkp 107, the puk code is bolcked and it says i must contact my provider. I have unlocking code i just dont know how to enter it. can you help?

I don't know where you get LG KP107 unlock code, since if you have that lg unlock code usually you have the details instruction how you enter it even you get that code from provider they always send unlock code with details instruction. I think you buy that code from unknown source and I doubt you have correct unlock code since you don't have details instruction from them.

hello. there is often a diagram which shows u how to insert the sim card. it will be a little diagram of a box shape with a **** on one side, as ur sim has a **** on one side too. try looking for it. the sim insertion can be under the battery, or more rrarely- thru the side of the phone. dont get confused with where the memory card fits, it is much smaller in size.
