    FYI, the current run on 950s are single SIM. I chatted with two MS Experts to find that out. I'm still waiting.

    It appears to be official. The unlocked Lumia 950 from the Microsoft Store is Dual SIM.

    The AT&T branded Lumia 950 is just Single SIM:

    P.S.Expat-GAD picked up his unlocked Lumia 950 at the Microsoft Store today. Here is his post, including a photo of the box which says "Dual SIM" on the side.

    Do you know if the UK ones from the Microsoft Store are single or dual sim? Just so I know whether or not I'm importing from Denmark. I can import from Denmark and still use my warranty thanks to EU rules, but I'd rather get direct from UK if possible.

    I had a conversation with MS Support, and they actually told me that currently both att and unlocked version have only one sim. When I asked about that web page that says "dual sim" support person told me that it's just a mistake on the page and it's a single sim. And they are going to release dual sim phones, but release date is unknown yet. The conversation was on 11/24/2015.

    Many Windows Central visitors picked up their Lumia 950s at the Microsoft Store this week. They picked up Dual SIM models, so it is definitely shipping and available today from the Microsoft Store.

    Unfortunately I only know about the phones delivered in the USA. Other countries may get the Single SIM version or the Double SIM version or have both available, depending on the country.

    One more important note...it looks like Dual SIM/Unlocked Lumia 950s may not support some of the AT&T features like Visual Voice Mail or HD Voice.

    Maybe. So far all I know is: those features don't work AND someone said it was because they are dual SIM. It sounds plausible but I still haven't seen any reliable confirmation of that. Anyone have a link to a known reliable source? Hate to see everyone stop looking for the cause or the solution because they think its a dead issue.

    VVM is baked into the OS. No firmware is special to the AT&T model in terms of VVM.

    AT&T branded handsets are having hit and miss issues with VVM set up. See this thread: http://forums.windowscentral.com/mic...-new-post.html AT&T users are showing fixes to configure VVM. Try these with a Factory Unlocked before throwing in the towel.

    Likewise HD voice. It is baked into the OS. For it to work your APN must be configured properly (nxtgenphone), your present location needs to be enabled via ATT for HD Voice on the towers and both the sending and receiving phone must be capable and configured phone side + carrier side for HD Voice. Otherwise you get an old school connection.

    Those functions have been folded into the standard Camera App in 10. At least that is my understanding. So they would not be available through the Store. However, if you developer unlock your phone and sideload it may work. No way to tell until someone tries.

    I know but some settings are missing in the new app. On my 830 I was able to install Lumia camera classic and also Lumia camera beta, so I wonder if 950 owners can do the same.

    Looking at getting a dual sim 950 so I can combine my work/personal numbers.

    Can anyone tell me the specifics of using dual sim vs a single sim(Aside from the 300mbps vs 150mbps indicated in the OP)? I know some dual sim phones the second sim operates at 2g, is that the case here or do both sims support LTE? I'm not finding much info on this. Since I would be occasionally be switching which line is my data connection(which I'm lead to be believe is possible) it would be nice to know.

    On Windows Phone, only one SIM at a time may access 3G/LTE. It is user selectable in the SIM settings.

    After reading this on the dual sim inquiries,
    I just wonder if MS is releasing a said quantity of these to market.
    I would assume that they are targeting businesses needing these and an in field test in use by us months ahead.

    I don't know why MS decide to release the dual sim version in Canada, I don't know anyone need that in my life, and it is reallyy annoying seethe no sim icon at the notification bar. hope they can add the option to remove that in the future.

    Where is the space in the 950 gone for the dual sim in the 950 dual sim. Does it have a bigger battery or is the speed of LTE download the only difference.

    This is unlikely the reason MS is selling the dual sim in Canada, but consider that the majority of Canada's population resides close the US border so a dual sim phone would be useful in reducing roaming fees for those traveling regularly to the US.

    Only SIM 1 supports LTE, while SIM2 supports 2G only on my 950. Kind of useless feature on a dual sim device.
