SIM #2 - does it work in Australia?

Customers that reside or intend to use this phone in Australia should be very CAUTIOUS. I've had no confirmation that SIM #2 will work in this phone.

Australia is progressively switching off the 2G band across ALL NETWORKS and the issue here is that most dual SIM phones only have 3G & 4G enabled on their #1 SIM. You won't even get voice on the SIM #2 card - effectively you are buying only a single-SIM phone.

That is my concern GinaLi

It's definitely NOT 4G on Sim #2. It may be 3G - if so I can still use both SIMs for voice calls in Australia. If it's 2G only (like my DG700) on SIM #2 then it's effectively a single-SIM phone in AU.

Nearly all the existing dual-SIM phones in Australia had the SIM #2 as 2G-only and are effected by the switch-off for that band. At present there is only 1 remaining network that has a 2G service (Telstra) - but that has only a few remaining months before 2G completely disappears.

I've sent an email to Tomtop about this same issue/ question and got the following response:

Generally, SIM 1 is 4G enabled and SIM2 is 3G. But network frequency varies from countries to countries.

Please ensure local area network is compatible: 

  • 2G GSM: B2/3/5/8 
  • 3G WCDMA: B1/2/5/8 
  • 4G: B1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/19/20
Note the word "generally". I haven't actually been able to get confirmation of which band(s) SIM#2 uses on the S60

So just like what you said: nearly all the existing dual-SIM phones in Australia had the SIM #2 as 2G-only! pity, buddy.
