efonwang, making sure that you have the best plan that meets your needs and budget is a must. I would like to help provide you with some plan options that may cut down your cost. For a more wide range of plan choice options, please click on the following link for more details here: http://spr.ly/6587DvegW

 

Another great option is to see if you potentially qualify for a military or employee discount off your plan cost. Please click on the following link for more details here: http://spr.ly/6588Dvego

 

I hope this helps!

Hey Verizon, It's time to support a dual-sim phone!

All the big-name phone manufacturers make a dual-sim phone - it's time for Verizon to support one of these phones on your network!

Many of the articles on the web say that there isn't a need in the US - well, there are LOTS of people who carry two phones, a work phone and a personal phone, and this would be perfect.

I really appreciate your feedback about the availability of a Dual SIM phone, BD100001. I agree. Having two phones with two numbers can get to be a bit cumbersome and it would certainly make life a bit easier to condense your cellular services to one device. And I have really good news! With the arrival of some of the newest iPhones, your ability to use this technology with the Verizon Wireless network will be here soon. You can find out more about this new technology and find out any updates on when it will be arriving by visiting https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/dual-sim-with-esim-faqs at your convenience. Is everything working well on your existing device? What model phone do you have now? Are you already with Verizon Wireless?

Oneplus 6t, 7Pro both worked with dual sim. My verizon sim worked and the international sim too. Good Luck!

Not sure if this is still a question anyone has, but there are many dual SIM phones that work on Verizon. There is only one "approved" one however. That's the OnePlus 6T/(7?)...and technically I guess the iPhone XR and XS as these have eSIM support for Verizon, which can be paired with a 2nd physical SIM.

However I personally have used the following unapproved devices with success on Verizon, including use of VoLTE though not WiFi calling...

 

1. ZTE Axon 7

2. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

3. Xiaomi Mi Note Global

4. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S

 

Basically, any VoLTE-capable phone with band 13 LTE support will work with Verizon, generally. One may have to do a little tinkering to get things to work perfectly, such as entering a dialer code to disable VoLTE carrier checking, but all in all I've had great success with all of the devices listed above.

Hi Flyer Randy,  I've been using an Mi Mix3 with success on both Verizon and TMobile. Band 13 is supported and I have the correct APN setting.  Calling, texting and internet all work fine on both carriers.  Couple of problems with VZW and wondering if you have any thoughts.  First is that voice mail notification is not working reliably on VZW.  Second is that any mms messages sent to the VZW number are not readable.  Works fine on the TMO number though.  Verzon isn't interested in helping.

I'm sorry to hear you feel that we don't want to assist you with your dual SIM issue. However, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 device is not carried by Verizon, and is not one of the listed dual SIM devices that we currently support (check out #3 here: http://spr.ly/6608EtawI ). When you choose to use a device that isn't officially supported by our network features, there will be instances where you experience things like your MMS and voicemail notifications having problems. As only a few phone models have proven to work with this new dual SIM ability so far, you would need to work with the manufacturer of your phone when you use something that hasn't passed our requirements yet.

When will non-iPhone devices sold by Verizon support Dual SIM functionality?
