The latest Microsoft Lumia 535, the ultimate selfie smartphone Lumia 730, as well as the Lumia 630 and Lumia 530 offer two SIM slots. They’re not just ordinary dual-SIM phones, they’re smart.

Remember when we explained how Dual-SIM works on Lumia?

Well, here’s a quick recap.If you own the Lumia 730, the Lumia 630 or the Lumia 530 you’ve probably noticed two sets of phone dial pads and messaging tiles on the Start screen, one for each SIM, both sets color-coded.

Your Lumia with dual-SIM offers you seamless switching so you can manage your social life with ease. Your phone separates the calls and messages between different SIMs and presents different accent text and call tiles for each account.

And now the smart bit: To make sure a call is never lost due to network connectivity, your Lumia makes it possible to divert calls between the SIMs (forwarding costs involved).

If different-shaded tiles weren’t enough, you can also change the names of the SIM cards. It can be as simple as “work” and “personal” or “friends” and “family.” These names are displayed on the tiles.

Within each contact, you also have the option to call from either SIM 1 or SIM 2. Further, if you always call a work colleague from SIM 2, you can make that the default for that contact.

Here are five reasons how the Microsoft Lumia 535, the Lumia 730, Lumia 630 or the Lumia 530 can make your life simpler:
