Who the hell here telling that it is not a dual standby mobile set? It is a dual sim standby mobile handset (Not dual active) means that the mobile phone can receive calls in sim 1 or in sim 2 in standby mode. The sim switch is there for you to decide which sim you r going to use for the outgoing calls and for the internet. Thats it.. I think I have cleared your doubts. I have purchased this set and using it for 3 days.
I bought this phone after originally contemplating Karbonn A5. Let me summarize the pros and consnnProsnGood touch responsenSony PC companion makes transferring data from PC very easynGood SpeakernVery good call and voice claritynSensor with blue blinking light for missed callsnSony Smart Connect app is very good to create smart connections (you can create a profile to silence calls from 11 PM to 7 AM for example - check it out)nGood battery life and fast charging (less than 2 hours to fully charge from 10%)nAndroid ICS is very fluid with Sony customizationnLarge internal memory - you can install apps to your hearts contentnGood wifinnConsnScreen size being a little small can sometimes not register my touch accuratelynnFor those who want to silence an incoming call by waving their hand in front of their phone (near the ear piece where the sensor is), install SilentHover app from Android market. nnUse Organizer Widget (gives a neat dashboard of your calls and messages) and Go SMS widget for flipping through your messagesnn** For those who want to import contacts from a Nokia Phone**nI had a Nokia earlier and I was able to import my contacts by first creating a backup of my contacts (from within the Nokia phone using its backup manager) and then copied the backfile file *.nbu to my desktop. I then renamed the extension to *.zip and extracted the file contents. If you search the folder for *.vcf, you will the find your contacts listing. Copy this to your memory card in your phone and you will be able to import this from your Sony Xperia contact app.
Xperia Tipo Dual, cousin of Xperia Tipo is an outstanding creation released by Sony for the people who want to buy Android phones at an affordable rate. Of course people who want to use Dual-Core ones won't like the specification of this elegant and eductive masterpiece. My suggestion to them is: Before they superciliously reject this phone, they must know, not many people could shell out 25 thousand Quids to buy a smartphone and there are less fortunate ones who want to own an Android device and enjoy the most of it . It should be a worthy buy as it has a reasonable configuration and is also coming at an attractive pricenand also not many Dual-Sim smartphones are available in the market which run on Android 4.0.

1. Its a dual standby.. means,, when u r using one sim to make phone call/ using GPRS the other sim gets off. nSIM switch button is just awesome feature.Very easy to switch between sim's. n2. 3G is supported on both sim's but not at a single time.. i.e if u r using 3G on SIM1 den you can use only GSM mode on other.You can always switch d preferred sim for using 3G anytime.n3. Phone memory is 754MB+2.15GB i.e phone only(like whatsapp, GO sms) apps can be installed only in this 754MB space(This is sufficient).. 2.15 GB is as good an external card fixed inside d phone permanently.n4. Headphone output is below satisfactory,,,, Do get purchase a good new headphone with d handset. n5. Phone built quality is pretty good. n6. Touch screen is way above satisfactory.. nnnFOR THOSE WHO R IN NEED OF A DUAL SIM SMART PHONE.. JUST GO FOR THIS ONE.. U WILL NEVER REGRET OF BUYING THIS. nnAs this phone was out of stock from flip-kart from many days, I had to buy this from local market.
