hey, is it really dual active? i mean if u're talking on say Sim1 and someone tries to call ur Sim2 number at the same time, is it reachable and u can put Sim1 call on hold and pick up Sim2? Also, what if ur browsing internet thru data connection on Sim1 and then someone tries to call Sim2? what happens then? I'm really in need of a dual-sim so I wanted these details...

HTC DESIRE V Bought Desire V yesterday. The good points : 1. Looks very good. 2. Fits snuggly in palm. 3. Quite thin. 4. The latest Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Wow!! 5. Nice Camera. 6. Good Battery life. 7. Dual sim. Dual active!! Not just standby. 8. Good touch experience. Temple run plays real good. 9. Beats audio ! Sound is really really good ! 10.Comes with 8 GB Card free and free (2 years)25GB space in cloud. Bad : 1. Price (Indian Rupee 20550) 2. Opening the phone is tedious. 3. No full HD video recording. 4. The charger is odd, the headphones average. 5. Takes more than 2 hours for a full charge. 6 Single core processor. 7. No front camera. All and all, it is the best specked 2 sim phone in smart high end category which was very overdue. If you need dual sim smart phone, go for this one, even though it could have been cheaper by a 15 %. After Samsung B-7722, this is really a good 2 sim phone.
