Samsung D880 DUOS is GSM with two SIM cards
posted by Nanko R. / Oct 03, 2007, 6:24 AM
Samsung D880 DUOS is the first GSM phone from major manufacturer (earlier there were solutions from Chinese brands with contestable qualities) to work with 2 SIM cards at the same time. In standby both cards are active and when dialing, DUOS asks which one to be used. The two can have different tone for incoming call and when one arrives, the phone says which card (number) it is destined to.
Features of the DUOS include 2.3” QVGA display, 3.2-megapixel camera, Stereo Bluetooth and FM radio.
Samsung SGH-D880 DUOS will be available for about $700 among Europe countries in November.
Nextel has had two--line phones for years, with a single SIM. Their billing can be together or separate; you can arrange to have the bills for each line sent to separate addresses for payment. For example, an employee can use their company-provided phone with their own separate billing for their personal useage, but only have to carry one phone.

Hi all phonearena friends; Samsung D880 is really disapointing to me i bought it yesterday from a samsung dealer in my country in PKR 23000, and sold it today at PKR 15000. As a mobile its good but as a double sim mobile its get zero marks from me; Reason is that "two sim mobile means a mobile which receive and send calls from both sims at same time" but this one can call from one sim at once, if u want to call from second sim u have to restart the phone, then secondry sim become first. Every time u call from second sim u have to repeat the whole process. This mobile can only take or receive call at both sims at one time but when u want to dial a call from second sim u have to restart it and it take 35-40 seconds. Kashif, Attock, Pakistan

Hey Kashif, samsung did not really do the job of educating its users hence the issue. The phone is reaaly superb for the 2 sim facility. You are wrong that the phone needs to reboot, just select the no. u need to call, there is a switch above the volume button which helps to select the sim outgoing call, thats all - its so easy my friend!

I think you are wrong.. I have one and I am happy with it. it will let you choose which line you want to use without restarting it. just press a small button above the volume. Sorry to hear that you have to sell it to a much cheaper price. I hope I am the one that you sell it to

Hi Kashif, You did a foolish mistake to sold it out (loss of 8000 rupees)!If you had read the user manual, then you didn't sold it. Because Your mobile will only REBOOT automatically if you change PRIMARY SIM from MENU options. While to CHANGE your simcard WITHOUT REBOOTING the phone, is to press the little button (located above the volume button at the left side of the phone). just TYPE your desired phone number or SMS and then, press the little button on left side to select your SIMCARD (SIM1 or SIM2). Then press "SEND" green button which directly send phone call or message to your desired number without restarting the mobile. For full demonstration of this procedure, please watch this YOUTUBE video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
And ofcourse, you can receive phone calls and messages on your BOTH SIMs at the same time as well.
And goodluck next time!

Hi Friends, I have two queries regarding the Duos. Can any one tell me what is the SMS capacity of Duos and is there any means to increase it? What is the platform (firmware) loaded in this mobile and what are the possible softwares that can be loaded on this? Thanks a lot. D880 fan.

Slot 1 is triband and works in the USA. However, slot 2 always says NO SERVICE, no matter what SIM I put in. (even the one that was working in slot 1). In Asia, both slots are working

Yeah, I got the D880 hoping to use it in the US during my frequent travel here with my country SIM and a local SIM. Unfortunately, Slot 1 only works in the US Slot 1 Is tri band - (900 / 1800 / 1900) Slot 2 Is NOT tri band and only dual. (900 / 1800) Here I am , saddled with one more paper weight !
