Re: Smartphone

I've just been looking at Samsung.

What does Duel sim mean & why would I need it? Isn't one sim card enough?

Re: Smartphone

The easy explanation is, of course, a phone with two SIM cards. To put it simply, it’s much like having two separate phones in one device. Each SIM can be connected to a different provider, or a different phone line from the same provider, and both will be active on the same device.

More info on this website.

I agree.

I have only ever had TWO smart phones.

The first was a Google Nexus (made by LG), which still works perfectly. Its battery failed to retain its charge after a few years, so I replaced the 'non replaceable' battery and it still works.

Marge decided I needed a new phone, so I got a Samsung S8, which is an excellent phone, though expensive.
