Both SIMs can only be 3G or 4 G but the guide says one has to be 2 G.
Also how do you switch between SIMs?Do they function independently, eg you can have one SIM with a What’s app function and the second SIM with another WHats app acct?
Is it something to do with the User set ups? I am having a v. Confused hour?
If you meant 4G: You have to set both SIM cards to 2G before setting one to 4G. This can be set in “Settings” → “More” → “Mobile networks”.
The SIM card for data and outgoing calls/SMS can be chosen via “Settings” → “SIM cards” for each of the three categories.
Incoming calls/SMS will always appear regardless of the SIM card (if you don’t disable one/both).
No, because you can only have one number inside your WhatsApp. It’s a limitation of WhatsApp.
And WhatsApp is working completely independent of the SIM card. You can even use WhatsApp without any SIM cards inserted, use a number from a different phone or a landline number.
The account setup works as follows:
- Open WhatsApp
- Enter the phone number
- Receive the confirmation code on that number you entered
- Enter it in WhatsApp
- Voilà – you have registered WhatsApp with that number
No, the phone user accounts are working independently from the SIM card.
Thank you so much. That has made it clearer. I was going round on circles before but think I’ve got it now. Really helpful.
And I never knew you could register for WhatsApp with a landline number. Every day is a school day.
