    Any Dual SIM Phone W/ Band 71 & 2 Physical SIM Card Slots?

    Yes, it's a new question in my ongoing search for an acceptable dual SIM phone.

    This time, my only question is, are there any dual SIM phones with 2 physical SIM card slots with LTE Band 71 support?

    Thank you for the above suggestions.

    Unfortunately, I just don't think I can bring myself to pay ~$700 to ~$900 for a phone.

    But again, I appreciate the info.

    Just wondering, are you using T-Mobile? I think band 71 is only useful on their services.

    Which phones on this list fit your qualification?

    The new umidigi F2 will have 71 and dual sim. Sticker price is $249.99 but you can get it for $179.99 right now as a preorder. It will be launched in about a week. If you don't like buying from aliexpress then usually they list them on amazon in a few weeks.
    https://www.umidigi.com/page-umidigi_f2_activity.html

    As a bonus it should also work on verizon if you swap in a sim.

    Chances are they will launch a cheaper phone in the next 6 months with 71 and dual sim. They usually launch several a year at different price points.

    Edit Also the Umidigi X has 71 and dual sim.

    Yes, I do use data only SIMs for both the T-Mo and AT&T networks. If I pursue a dual SIM phone at this time, which is questionable, I may give up the idea of Band 71. To spend so much money just to get Band 71, especially since there's no way to know what T-Mo's future holds, doesn't seem prudent, at least not for me.

    Or, if the Pixel 3a goes back down to $200, like it was at one time several months ago with Sprint activation, or perhaps $250 outright with no required activation, during the upcoming holiday sale season, maybe I'll buy that, even if it's mostly just for the excellent camera. Then I'll hope/wait until T-Mo will be willing to use the Pixel eSIM for one of their data only plans AND/OR until MVNOs are able to use the eSIM. I just wish the Pixel 3a had 2 real physical SIM card slots instead of 1 SIM card slot + 1 eSIM. Oh, well...

    That's good to know. At this moment, I can give a vote of confidence to Umidigi.

    I would wait til you can get it on Amazon prime though in case you need to return it. There's always a chance you might get a lemon.

    I have 3 in service on Verizon mvno - an F1, an F1 Play and a S3 Pro and all have been going well. The dual sim was working fine with a freedompop AT&T sim.

    The OnePlus 7t launches on the 18th at $599. Also swappa 7 pros are down even cheaper.

    Does anyone know how the $179.99 preorder works? I'm trying to do it, but when I add it to the cart from https://www.umidigi.com/page-umidigi_f2_activity.html, it looks like the price ends up being $249.99.

    If I have to wait until 10/14/19 to order for the $179.99 price, why does https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000...c00FSwOBd&mp=1 show that there have already been 450 ordered?
