Dual SIM China Mobile Phones

Chances are very slim that you will buy one of those beautiful China phones in the market and you are able to configure GPRS Internet and MMS settings. GPRS Internet and MMS settings handily works in china mobile phones with failure rates as high as 75%. China mobile phones are very attractive to young people because of their elegance appearances, the ability to run dual SIM cards, the low prices and the ‘lie’ that they have features to support GPRS Internet and MMS capability.

Configuring GPRS Internet and MMS Settings on China Phones

Dealers in china phones knows very well that the phones have no capability for GPRS Internet and MMS but will keep on selling the phones with the promise that the phones have the ability to run GPRS internet and MMS just because they want to make ‘unfair’  profits. Once the consumers have paid for the china phones, the trouble starts when .they does not get what was promised. The consumers, usually young gals and guys, are tossed from right, left, centre, backward, forward and finally they realize they have to learn to live without GPRS internet and MMS. GPRS internet and MMS are crucial features for a young person’s phone as the features are highly useful for textings love messages accompanied by ‘live’ photos among lovers and youth.

No Support Websites for China Phones

One would expect that clone phones may be ‘exact copies’ of the original phones, made legally, and or, illegally from the original documentation using reverse engineering and usually cheaper than the original phones. This may not be the case with most of the China phones perhaps because what you input is directly proportional to the output. China phones are very frustrating especially because the manufacturers of China phones handily provide any support websites and when they do its usually in scarce details and in a language you can’t understand.

China Is Taking Entire Market with Dual SIM Phones

But you may call China phones anything you may want but the truth is that China is about to take the entire market with their dual SIM phones. They have been doing this for the past few years whilst favorite mobile phone manufacturers like Nokia and Samsung have been watching and doing nothing about it. To people living in first world, it is indeed very difficult to understand why one would be interested in a phone with two SIM cards whilst one SIM card is adequate as call can be made from one network carrier to another. This may not be the case in the entire planet. There are valid reasons why people need dual SIM card phones, namely:

1. First mobile phone carrier will have a strong network signal in one region but a poor network signal in another region whilst the second mobile phone carrier has a strong network signal in that region.

2. Marked discrepancies in pricing rates for different services across different mobile phone carriers - one mobile phone carrier maybe very good in mobile phone money transfer whilst the other mobile phone carrier is very cheap in making calls across all networks.

3. Reliability – when this mobile phone carrier is down the other one is up and running, and vice versa.

4. Ability for phone users to assume different identities at any time for whatever reasons.

GPRS Internet to Browse Facebook by Mobile Phone

It is because of these factors that has made dual SIM card phones very popular with people, especially in Asia and Africa. But when a phone can not last long enough before sleeping dead like a dodo, or when you can’t get supportive website in a language you can understand, or when young people can not send s*xy texting accompanied by real images of themselves through MMS, or when young people can not configure GPRS internet on their phones to reach Facebook, then there is bound to be a question whether these china phones young people are buying in millions are the right phones for them.

Dual SIM Nokia C2

And now, after years of soul searching, Nokia has come up with Dual SIM Nokia C2 which means there will be no more fuss in configuring GPRS Internet and MMS Settings on China Phones. With Nokia, the gimmicks of tossing people from right, left, centre, backward and forward with unworkable configuration of GPRS Internet and MMS Settings on dual SIM Phones will be no more, partly because Nokia has a name that they have to protect at any cost, and partly because Nokia has a professionally run websites that are dedicated in support of Nokia’s products in languages that are understandable by people in different regions. One good plus for Nokia phones is virtually all mobile phone service providers/carriers have ready GPRS Internet and MMS configuration settings for Nokia phones ready to send to your phone for you to save without you having to lift a finger.

Hot-Swappable SIM Card in Dual SIM Nokia C2

The new Nokia C2 phone will keep the two SIM cards active at the same time. This in essence means that calls and SMS texts can come to either of SIM number as long as the phone is on. In Nokia C2, one SIM card is under the battery and is the primary SIM. The other SIM is the secondary which is ‘hot-swappable’ – meaning that secondary SIM card can be removed and inserted when the phone is on. This is a feature which is very attractive for those who have multiple SIM cards – Never worry yourself wondering why one person should be having five or six SIM cards at the same time because if people are having them they must have reasons. Nokia C2 phone is indeed a phone that, like China dual SIM phones, will allow you to answer one call while you keep the other call on hold. Nokia is professionally putting it that you can have one SIM card for work and the other SIM card for home account or share the phone with your besty sweetheart. No, the crude way of putting it is that you can use SIM card number one to make calls at times when mobile network A is charging the lowest rates per call and you use card number two to make calls at times when mobile network B is charging the lowest rates. People need to teach those mobile network carriers a lesson so that they can bring calling rates and charges down.

Nokia C2 as GPRS Modem to Connect Your Laptop to Internet

Nokia C2 comes with FM radio and music player. The storage space is massive in this Nokia C2 plus the phone has the ability to support micro-SD cards of up to 32GB which is a large storage space as hard disks of yesterday computers. Nokia C2 has a battery standby time of a half a month, a VGA camera, GPRS and Bluetooth meaning you can use it as a GPRS modem to connect your laptop computer to the internet. Nokia C2 is priced at a price that is very competitive to China phones. At about $60 per Nokia C2 phone, that price is a real bargain to a phone of such features. Sooner, you should be able to buy Nokia C2 from Amazon stores and any other stores near your area.

Nokia C2 Configuration for WAP, GPRS Internet, and MMS Settings

Once you have bought your Nokia C2, call each of your two mobile phone carriers to send you Configuration for WAP, GPRS Internet, and MMS Settings. This should take you one minute as virtually all mobile phone service providers/carriers have ready GPRS Internet and MMS configuration settings for Nokia phones ready to send to your phone for you to save without you having to lift a finger.

This is a good phone, but is not entirily true what you seid about china phones. I work in a company name BCS Computers that manufacture China Phones their brand is call XphoneX and we have dedicated the time to fight with supplier and to have better quality in our phones. We improved the batteries that is true most of the other china brand give you 2 or 3 but they don't work. We use a UL approved battery with an MDSD number for USA. Also charger in under UL approved and the phones some are FCC approved. We make sure that our software can be set to use GPRS settings and MMS texting. I used to have a blackberry but I swapth to an android XphoneX 708 this phone is fast reliable and work super fast in a AT&T network. I can go to facebook, msn, take picture send then either with what'app or MMS. So to aswers you I really believed that Chine will take over but remember that they only have 5 years making phones and they are taking over market. Wait 5 more years and you will see how chinese phones take over the entire market!

my email addres is

nmonjane on March 14, 2011:

Thank you for this advice because so many people have been tricked with these china phones and i'm one of them. I have a Blackberry from china they promise me that the internet is working but its not instead when i open it, it shows the blocks. And they attract people with their tv's. So what i want to know if i get a person from china can he set for me because here in South Africa they do not have the china settings for these phones. Or what other options i can do.

Hi aslm jws,

You have a phone that can not hold a battery for more than half a day and you say it's a 'best buy'. Perhaps you may want to compare that with Nokia C2 that will hold battery for half a month.

Actually, the issue here is a reliable phone that has a dual sim cards and its easy to configure GPRS Internet and MMS Settings. There are good phones from China alright by the problem has been configuring GPRS Internet and MMS Settings and the support from the Chinese manufactureres has not been forthcoming. Why we are very interested in this Nokia C2 phone is partly based on the past track record of Nokia Company in providing in their phones exactly what they state is provided in addition to professionally run support websites.

aslm jws on October 30, 2010:

am in India. Recently got a touchscreen mobile phone, unbranded, but it looks and performs very well. There is a nice camera with multi functions just like a real digital camera, a video recorder with multiple speeds-sound-snap shooter-pause,image viewer in different formats, quick view of album. Bluetooth functions well. SMS and MMS too is good.2 sim card player has nice sound-jump to next song-volume control. GREAT. the only flaw is the battery, that does not hold half a day. And spare battery is NOT AVAILABLE.At Rs.5000/-its a best buy. Looks just like apple, with the apple monogram and original type etching on the back cover.I'm very happy with it.

hi on October 28, 2010:

Best phone in the market till now
