Great questions, First dual sim phone will definitely work with at&t but with some conditions.

  • Phone should be UNLOCKED.
  • Since the phone is not from at&t data or internet may or may not work.
  • if in the future the phone is going to encounter any issues at&t may not be able to troubleshoot the phone for you.

 

The activation process is going to be the same  ACTIVATE HERE.

  • ICCID number (simcard number starting with 8901)
  • IMEI number (for dual simphone you will have 2 IMEI number) ie; IMEI number 1 and IMEI number 2 ( depends of what slot are you gonna insert your simcard)

Complete the activation. Test the service. Hope this will help.

Re: using new unlocked dual Sim Phone.

Hello Elesh 17,

 

Most Indoian phones are unlocked (I have yet to coem acros a phone in india that is locked to a carrier). So in theroy they will work, if 3G bands supported are 850Mhz and 1900Mhz. However only one slot can be used on AT&T sim, as the other by default will become 2g and AT&T does not support 2g bands anymore.

 

Data will work, yo may just have to manually add the AT&T apn settings (google and you will find the AT&T apn setting details).

Does AT&T sell dual sim card cell phones. I talked to five different people today and acted like I was a alien, when I mentioned dual sim cards mobile phones,. Most of Europe have dual sim cards, but AT&T agents are poorly trainined.
