A dual SIM mobile phone is a mobile phone that holds two SIM cards. This allows the user to have access to more than one carrier or more than one phone number. Dual SIM phones can be used to keep personal contacts separate from numbers of business contacts. Although a mobile phone may have the dual SIM capability, sometime the phone is locked and cannot be used with more than one SIM. The mobile phone can be unlocked using an unlock code and your IMEI number.
