    I'm thinking since the Surface tablet write off fiasco Microsoft has been very careful to not over produce a product, which means they sometimes under produce. That's my theory.

    Or they just under produce everything to make it looks like so popular which will some how make people want it more. Kind of a market strategy (hunger marketing) in which way both google and Apple has used before.

    The dual sim have a cat4 lte for 150 mpbs rather than cat6 lte 300 mbps.
    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but what exactly does that mean? Does it mean the data connection will be slower on a dual-sim device compared to a single-sim device?

    It depends on the combination of networks. Telus and Bell for instance don't work together but Telus or Bell paired with Rogers works fine if the Telus or Bell sim is set as the one with data.
    I have it working with TELUS as data, and Rogers as secondary. however, I much prefer the other way around. I made a pinned shortcut so I can change data to Rogers since that is my non work sim and is faster /better reception outside of work.

    Anyone notice that you can't use two sims working on a different network frequency? One of the sims won't have reception example Koodo and Wind won't work
    Forgot to mention this, but I did go to a Wind store a few weeks ago to see if I could get a Wind sim to work at the same time as my Telus sim. No luck.

    The Wind sim works by itself, but when we put in both the Telus and the Wind, the Wind sim would not initialize.

    Odd I tried my Rogers and wind the same time, it worked fine on both sim. And if I put both Rogers sim, it worked fine too.

    EDITED @10:55 : so the thing is the phone only can use one sim for 3g/4g connect at a time, since Rogers is the only Canadian carrier (nationwide) has 2G GSM/Edge network, dual sim for Rogers will work. But not for other carrier. So to be able to use your wind sim, you have to set "use this SIM for cellular data" to Wind to be able to use that sim, so is the TELUS sim too. So, you could try to see if you can setup in smart dual sim setting to make the phone calls automatically transfer to the other sim.
    This is really not good, I was against the dual sim version releasing in Canada from beginning. Now I was proved right that the dual sim version almost useless and not benifit at all.

    Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand what you mean here. I understand that only one sim can use data, but both should be able to make phone calls and send texts. So are you saying that if I set Wind to "use for cellular data", that I won't be able to make phone calls with my Telus sim?

    Sounds like it. I have Rogers and TELUS, and when data is set to Rogers, TELUS doesn't work. I swap it when I need to have TELUS at work, and Rogers will allow phone and text even when not set to data.

    I guess it was silly of me to expect that a dual sim phone would just work with any two sims in any configuration. I guess it's more complicated than I thought.

    congrats to those who have been able to procure one!
    I am on the fence myself (not that it matters because they are not in stock)

    for those lucky few Canadians that have one, how are you liking it?

    I guess it makes sense they are sharing the same radios and you can't have one radio used at the same time by different sim. And just for us, we don't have a lot of options for gsm providers with different radios

    First dual sim phone for me too. I'm just surprised that no other carrier in Canada has 2G/EDGE coverage other than Rogers. I assumed when a service can provide 4G, they must be backward compatible with 3G and 2G. Guess not.

    seems the setup is mainly for switching between two networks, rather than simultaneously, at least in Canada. but it was still good for me, since I no longer carry two phones at work. I finally got rid of the work iPhone 6. cant stand iphones.

    Read a post from European saying that many people over there use data plan separate from their cell, since it's much cheaper that way there.
