GLOBAL – Holidays are for giving and connecting and now Dual SIM gives you several phones in one. These holidays you might be visiting your family in a different part of the country, or even the world. With a Dual SIM you can swap between SIM cards, so you get guaranteed good coverage. Or, if you are overseas, you can reduce roaming charges with one SIM for home and one for wherever you are.
Take control of your time by swapping between SIM cards. You can split your phone between business calls, and family and friends. If you’re a busy salesman in Lagos, for example, sometimes you might want to have dinner with your family without taking lots of calls from suppliers or customers.

Or it might even give you the edge. In China one owner of a popular electronics store kept a separate SIM card for his best customers, so that they felt privileged and could always get hold of him.
Sometimes you just want the best deal to get you where you’re going. Like if you’re travelling to work in Mumbai every day on the train, and you want to swap your SIM card to get the best coverage along the way.
Or you might be a student in Brazil who needs to manage the cost of the phone by using one number to get onto the internet as cheaply as possible, and the other number for making calls and sending messages.
You could even be getting your first family phone and sharing it between you, so you can all have your own numbers, contacts and private browsing history.
There are lots of reasons why a Dual SIM phone makes your life better and easier, and Nokia Dual SIM phones pack more memory, better battery life and far richer SIM change and entertainment features than other Dual SIM products. In fact, a Dual SIM is the perfect way to tailor your phone so that you get the most out of it, and use it as much as you want to. Here are a few Nokia Dual SIM phones to think about this holiday season. They make for great gifts too:
You can keep the conversation going with the Nokia 101 with a Dual SIM that remembers the settings for five different users, a month of standby battery life and an MP3 player.
You can fit your entire music collection onto a Nokia 101 and it has features like one push playlist creation, shuffle and repeat. Then you can listen to your music on the stereo headset provided, or share with friends over the loudspeaker.
Chat with your friends, send holiday’s greetings and access Internet to find great ideas for your celebrations – with no battery compromises.
The Nokia C2-00 remembers the settings for up to five separate SIM cards, and it features Easy Swap, which offers you the convenience of changing SIM cards without needing to turn off the phone or remove the battery.
This phone supports a whopping 32GB of memory, so you can store thousands of photos, videos and music files. The 32GB SD card is not in the box, so you have to buy it separately.
The Nokia X1-01:
This is a great music phone.
You can store and shuffle thousands of songs, create your own playlist and show all your DJ talent to your friends on the Nokia X1-01.
Then you can play your music out loud and clear for up to 36 hours.
Nokia C2-03 and Nokia C2-06:
Go to new places, find new routes – and take great photos, with these phones.
The Nokia C2-03 and the Nokia C2-06 remember the settings for up to five separate SIM cards, and have Nokia’s Easy Swap feature, so you can put the new SIM card in without needing to reboot.
The Nokia C2-03 and the Nokia C2-06 also have the Nokia Browser which compresses data to lower costs, letting you have as much internet and email as you want for an affordable price.
The Nokia C2-03 also comes with Nokia Maps preloaded. Local maps are pre-loaded and can be used offline, so you can find out where your friends are, or that shop you’ve been looking for, without breaking the bank. And you can also add all the maps you want via Nokia Suite before going abroad to save your money.
And if you live in India, China, Indonesia and Nigeria you’ll get Nokia Life Tools too.
