How to set up and use Dual SIM on your iPhone — Apple Support


With iPhone XS,
XS Max, and XR, you can add a second phone line and use both numbers
on a single iPhone. This is handy if you need
a separate business number, or if you’re traveling
out of the country and want to use
a local plan while you’re away. Here’s how it works. To activate dual SIM, you have
to buy a plan from a carrier in the form an eSIM. Setup may vary
depending on your carrier. Some may require you
to download their app to purchase and activate
the plan, while others will provide
a QR code. if you’re adding an eSIM
using a QR code, open Settings, tap Cellular, then tap Add Cellular Plan. ♪ Music playing ♪ From here, use your iPhone
camera to scan the QR code.


When your iPhone
detects the QR code, you’ll see this screen appear. Tap Add Cellular Plan, and then label
your phone numbers so you know which is which. Tap Primary to label
your original phone number. You can pick
a suggested label like Personal, Business,
or Travel, or create your own
custom label. We’ll change this one
to Personal. Now tap Secondary to label
the new number you just added. We’ll use this one for travel. ♪ When you’re done,
tap Continue. Next, select a default number. This is the number
you’ll use for iMessage and to call or send messages to contacts that are not
in your address book. Your other number will still be
available for calls and SMS.



Then tap Done. On the Home screen,
you’ll see two cell signal bars that pair with
each of your numbers. Swipe down from the top right
to open Control Center, where you can get a better look
at the cell signal strength for each number. Need to make a phone call? Open the Phone app as usual
and select a contact. If you haven’t assigned
a preferred number to the person you’re calling,
you’ll use the number from your last communication
with this person to start new phone calls
and messages. To assign a preferred number, tap Last Used
under the contact’s name, then select a number
to always use. ♪ If you dial an unsaved number
like a new pizza place, your iPhone will select your
default number for the call. You can change
the number you’re using by tapping this gray bar
with your default number right above the number pad and then selecting
the line you’d like to use.


When you receive a phone call, you ‘ll see an icon under
the contact’s name or number that tells you
which number the call is for. Looks like Uncle Dave
is calling my personal number. I’ll call him back later. Sorry, Uncle Dave. Let’s send him
a follow-up message. In Messages, your default number
will be used automatically when you start a new message. To change this,
tap the green or blue bar with your default number and select which number
you’d like to use. You can only change the number
when starting a new message. It can’t be changed
in an existing message. Then type out your message and tap Send. You can tweak the settings
for each number at any time. Just open Settings
and tap Cellular. And that’s how you use two phone
numbers on just one iPhone. For more helpful tips like this, subscribe to
