Peculiarities of service use
Incoming calls, messages etc. can be taken only by one of the mobile terminals, in which SIM-card is in so-called “active” state. Accordingly, SIM-card in another mobile terminal is passive and any outgoing operations can be made from this device.
To transfer basic SIM-card into active state it is necessary to dial *107*1#. combination on mobile device keyboard. In this case extra SIM-card automatically transfers into passive mode. To transfer extra SIM-card into active state it is necessary to dial *107*2#. combination on mobile device keyboard. In this case basic SIM-card automatically transfers into passive mode.
To change any position of any SIM-card within “SIM-pair” service from active to passive or vice versa from passive to active, it is necessary to dial USSD-request *108# on mobile terminal keyboard. In this case second SIM-card automatically changes its previous state to the contrary.
Outgoing operations can be made from any mobile terminal regardless of active or passive SIM-card is in it.
In case of SIM-card loss, you can temporarily block the number by calling Directory Assistance Service or by applying to the Customer Sales and Service Center, and in this case both SIM-cards are blocked at once.
It is impossible to guarantee “SIM-pair” compatibility with “Mobile Manager”, “Static IP address”, «D-jingle», “Remote Divert”, “Who Called” services and when using “Tracker” or “Navigator” services only one active at the time of request SIM-card is monitored.
