Default Dual Sim? Mpeg video problems?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

I was just wondering if anyone is using dual sim on the 8900? If yes, maybe you could give some comments on its function? Example: would it be able to receive calls from either one from the sims? or just simultaneously receiving calls from the two sims?

I m having trouble watching mpeg videos on my BB, can anyone help to solve this problem?

Your help and kind attention would be greatly appreciated.

warmest regards

I dont think the 8900 has the ability to use 2 sims at once.

All the dual sim adapters I've seen are fairly expensive. Maybe $60 or $70. I've considered them, but I think it's easier to just carry my old Razr with the other sim.

They all only use one sim at a time. All the adapter does is select one or the other. And the phone acts as if only that sim is in there. Given the slow boot time of Blackberries, I can't imagine they'd be pleasant to use.
