    If I understand the specs correctly WC reported wrong information in the articles about 640XL being a Dual-SIM LTE capable. Microsoft mobile website does not mention that.

    It seems we will have to wait an year to get the true Dual SIM phone with LTE bands for each SIM.

    Do we know if it's LTE for *both* SIMs? Many 3G dual-SIM devices are HSPA for one and 2G-only for the other. I hope something similar isn't the case here!

    I have a Dual Sim 640XL. I have not tried two LTE sims at once but I have had my LTE data sim in port 1 and got LTE and switched it to port 2 and got LTE also. I currently don't have a voice plan with LTE. I use a pay as you go calling and texting only sim and a data only sim. So I can not test if both ports can have 3G/4G/LTE at the same time.

    Even if both SIM slots are LTE capable, only one will work at a given time. Having both working at the same time will fry your skin cells and battery will deplete drastically.

    I bought the Dual SIM LTE version from Expansys USA, it's listed at just 640 XL, but I received a Dual SIM LTE. It gets LTE for AT&T in New Jersey. You can select date for either SIM, and I have an LTE SIM in SIM 2. Both are not concurrent LTE, but when switched, I get LTE on SIM 2 and the other just says "G".

    Oh man, wish I would have known Expansys 640XLs were dual sim. I paid $304 off ebay. It came from HK in 2 days though. Oh well, it's still a nice phone.

    I ordered 2 Dual Sim LTE 640 XLs from Microsoft France. Been waiting over a month for this blinking phone. Really 2 months, but I wanna cry. Microsoft still have it as PROCESSING even though the launch date was today and I was hoping to get it by today. Grrr. Even the Microsoft agent didn't know why it had not been processed already. It has been Processing for 2 days so far. And I am getting so fed up. Just want my new phone. No. I am not buying the single sim option from the UK for 185 or 219, I am paying 180 for the Dual variant from France so It is worth getting the upgraded version.

    But WHY? Microsoft. Why are you not sending this blinking phone to people who have waited weeks to get this phone. France is like the last place to get the phone at all. It is so annoying. Anyone have an idea why Microsoft is taking so long?

    Preordered 2 from France & never turned up. Finally got an English speaking agent to look into it for me. She turned out to be a lovely German lady who phoned me back on Monday to say they had run out of phones. I had already been told on Friday by a really rude English speaking French agent that the French people would get theirs first and other European orders would be sent out later. Even Amazon can't send them out.

    Am so disappointed in MS. My order says "Processing" but it is just sitting there and my 925 is gaining problems daily. I can barely make a call without it cutting off and it will no longer update at all ever again cos it refuses to sync with the time server as the updates. Half the time it stops typing and it has a tendency to slow down and then suddenly reboot to black with Nokia on screen. I need my new phone and it has to be dual sim and it has to be LTE.

    An update. As of right now Amazon.fr has them available for next day delivery. I bought my phones from there and rang Microsoft on 08000260329 with my order number and asked them to cancel my order due to being able to purchase it from Amazon in stock and no date from MS store. The advisor had sent a cancellation request to the fulfillment centre and will phone me back when it is definitely cancelled. I hope this helps.

    I received my Dual Sim LTE model today but when I put my AT&T SIM card in the device only showed 4G up top. Is this normal? Is there somewhere else to check for LTE? Underneath "bands" it listed the relevant AT&T ones and in device info it says "Lumia 640 XL LTE"

    Ducky, I have the same issue, with T-Mobile AND AT&T. I'm a US user with an international version from eBay. Definitely LTE model though. I do get LTE speeds when I test.

    Got mine from Expansys as well, I'm with Tmobile and in NYC, the best I've gotten so far using Microsoft's Network Speed Test is 29.5 Mbps download and 10.5 Mpbs upload with the phone showing 4G connection.

    Hi All,

    My 640 XL Dual Sim is on its way and it will be here tomorrow. It is now readily available on EBay for $249. It is RM-1096 version.

    BTW Outside US 4G = LTE. Hence all phones made for outside world will show 4G for LTE speeds.
