it would depend on the phone and its operating abilities, without looking at the manual I couldn't say it was possible, although some are marketed as being capable of just such a thing .....
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

If @torpic is actually referring to a dual sim phone I been using them for several years, on my 3rd handset. Only one sim will work at the higher data rates and this sim will be the default for MMS and video calls. The other sim will use the lower rates. The first 2 handsets the SIM had to be in a particular slots for selection of the higher rates. The current handset I can select through the setup menu.

It is most likely going to be the Huawei Y330 I posted about in a different thread including the usermanual.pdf linked with a load of FCC information, which atm goes over my head untill I get time to read & absorb Wink
