Dual SIM feature on the Samsung S4 mini I-9192

Hi Guys,

I'm new to a dual SIM feature.
So a couple of simple questions;

1) How does it work?
I'm guessing (hoping) that you insert two (micro?) SIM cards, activate both and if anyone calls either SIM number the phone rings? Is it that simple?

2) Has anyone used dual SIM's on international roaming? One UK and one Middle Eastern SIM used in Europe for example.

How dual SIM feature works?

Here are my two cents:

1) You're pretty right, but I would say that you will be able to select with which of both SIM cards you want to response. To do that you have to set up the dual SIM feature at your convenience, this is if you have SIM cards of two different telecom carriers and you want to take the most of their networks.

2) You can use two SIM cards internationally, the idea is "avoid" roaming charges. To do that you have to buy SIM cards for the companies that have better coverage over the zones that you're planning to moving around, then you can switch the SIM cards in a way that allow you to save money.
