The dual SIM variant Xperia M2dual lets users set up both SIM cards independently with custom ring tones, and select between two SIMs before making calls or sending messages, while Sony’s dual SIM management technology keeps both SIMs active.

    Just to share, I made a site for my Sony Xperia M2 at https://www.facebook.com/Sony D2303 to highlight the good, bad and ugly of my experiences with it.

    You like save on SD card? WHATEVER YOU DO DONT UPDATE TO ANDROID 4.4.2.
    If you already updated to Android 4.4.2 then you know it ONLY “File commander” works properly.

    If you got Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean MR2)
    This is the only working version.

    I got this phone and after I updated to version 4.4.2 ALL icons
    disappear from startmenu if i “moved app to SD card”

    Thinking of rooting phone just to be able to use the SD card again, damn you google.

    If you dont belive me google this Android 4.4.2 SD card

    Such a shame the dualsim doesn’t support 4G… Why is that?

    Are there any Sony Xperia phones that support world networks ? so that one can travel around the world and can put in any sim cards and its able to use whatever frequencies available either LTE, HSDPA+, or even CDMA/EVDO.

    and a bit of information, in Indonesia there is only one high end phones for CDMA networks, and that made people imports from Verizon. You might want to work with Indonesia’s CDMA provider like Smartfren which is notable for their phone bundle business.

      Hi Andre,
      There are no Xperia phones that have worldwide support, only separate variants for particular markets.
      Best regards,
