Where to Buy LG Android Phones
an affordable dual-SIM phone from LG
LG GX200 supports two SIM cards. Both SIM slots support quad-band GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz. This means you can have two phone numbers in one phone. However, the problem with LG GX200 is that it is not dual-active, which means that you cannot receive calls on both lines at the same time. If a caller calls you on your standby line when you are receiving or making a call with your active line, he/she will be told that your phone is switched off. This might make the dual-SIM feature useless for most people. The call divert feature can be used to achieve dual-active capability, but can be very inconvenient if you switch between SIMs frequently.
A dual-SIM phone empowers you; you can take advantage of reduced call rates, without losing your existing line. If one network is erratic in a given location, you can switch to another network with better signal, keeping you in touch with those that matter to you. You can also use one line for your personal life and the other for your professional life.
