    So far, I haven't found a way to disable Sim 2 from the notification bar or text. I'd love to disable it completely so it acts like a single sim phone.

    I don't need the second SIM and the icons are getting annoying.

    On Windows Phone 8.1 you go to Settings>Notifications & Actions. Then turn off phone two and messaging 2. Not sure if it's the same on WP10 but worth a shot.

    Nice thought, but it's not there on Win10...or at least on mine.

    There is, go into the Phone or Messaging app, open the menu/options bar, and hit Link tiles. It'll combine the tiles into a single one and hide the extra ones.

    I'd mainly like to get the extra icon out of the status bar at the top.

    I am kind of disappointed about the empty 2nd sim notification taking up valuable real-estate too.

    I've never had a dual sim phone, so please excuse the dumb question. If I buy one of those pre paid sims and install it along with my T-Mobile sim, will that allow me to make calls from two numbers on the same phone? That would be cool, but I'd need to develop some nefarious motive for doing so.

    You can turn it off once you have a SIM installed. You can't turn it off if there isn't one installed.

    That is exactly what having dual SIMs allows you to do. You can use two different phone numbers (like a home and work number).

    do you have the phone?....if yes, Can you toggle off either sim?
    I have a Canadian phone number and a US phone number. When I am in Canada the US phone number need to go off and vice versa....

    Yes, I have the phone. And yes, there is a toggle in the settings. It is disabled when there is only one SIM, but there it is there. You can enable/disable the SIM from the settings.

    You can also link the messaging and phone tiles respectively. It the. Only shows one tile for each and you can select the sim you want to use inside the app.

    Not only do I want to get rid of the empty sim in the status bar but also the labeling of "sim 1" in all text messages and calls.

    And the other downside of a dual-sim is the lack of VVM. If my back-ordered 950 comes dual sim I think I will send it back and pay more for the AT&T version and try to get it unlocked.

    Did it work? I tried this on WP 8.1 on a dual-sim L640 and I could not disable the icon even after inserting an active and also an expired sim card from a different operator. If this is sorted out in W10M than I'll be one happy camper.

    I never said you could disable the icon only the active SIM card. It will probably still show the icon.
