Nokia 7 Plus – Dual SIM settings
Note that both SIM slots support 4G networks and if you are unable to get 4G on any of the SIMs then you will need to contact your service provider in this regard. The phone will show both SIM’s when they have been inserted into the phone. When you dial the number you have to choose a SIM to use with the number you had just dialled. Note that both SIM’s cant be used at the same time. If you are using SIM 1 then SIM 2 will not be available hence you will need to setup a mail box later for both SIM’s so you can retrieve your missed calls later.
You can decide which SIM goes for which either for business or personal use. Maybe SIM 1 has cheaper data rates while SIM 2 has unlimited telephone calls. You have to decide which SIM you will use for which. Start with this:
- Tap Settings > Network & Internet > SIM Cards

- Under Preferred SIM for , tap the setting you want to change and select the SIM
You preferred SIM is normally tour default SIM and the phone will use this one as a first option. Depending on the data plans for each phone you should consider which SIM to use for each of the two data plans that you have.
