I know a few people who have a AT&T business phone and a Verizon personal phone.
"But in theory" once T-mobile gets done with their spectrum refarming, you could have two numbers one from AT&T for business and T-Mobile for personal, or vise versa, with the dual sim Xperia Tipo. Or would both numbers have to be both from AT&T?

Two numbers from any GSM provider would work. There is no restriction on which providers they are from. You can have both AT&T or both T-Mobile or one of each or use foreign roaming sims. It's all good.

Hmm, or you could have one sim with a wireless broadband plan on it, for JUST data, and another with pay as you go talk and text... the mind boggles with possibilities!

It has native USB tethering and WIFI hotspot capabilities. There is no other dual-sim android phone from a major manufacturer with USA 3G frequencies. This is looking like a real winner. I hope someone can buy it and try it and review it.

Most carriers no longer allow the 'data only' plan for smartphones.....if you have a data plan you are required to have a voice plan....

But for under $200, that's not bad for an unlocked phone running Android 4.0.

Well, it could also apply to a wireless broadband account. A lot of data sticks need to ahve a sim card plugged into them, in theory you could use that sim card in a phone and just get data. I know simple mobile offers wireless broadband, 25 dollars for 750 mb, and 45 dollars for 2 gb. And I know for a fact you can use it in a phone as well. I figure other companies might offer the same.
