Each line is individually labeled to differentiate between numbers. These labels can be customized and may vary depending on the operating system and active carrier.
Both lines can be connected to the network at all times. While on a call using one line, the other line is on standby. If you receive a call on the other line while on a call using the first line, the incoming call will go to voicemail.
Both lines can access mobile data, but only one line can access mobile data at any given time to prevent duplicate charges. Your usage will reflect the line that you have selected to be used as the default at any given time. The default line can be changed in your phone settings.
