    I am considering buying an Xperia 1 III Dual SIM. Is there a way where you can specify (and store) which SIM should be assigned to each contact so that the phone uses whichever one you specify when ringing a particular contact?

    Thanks.

    I don't think dual SIM phones have this function. Sorry

    Hi. I have an S21 Ultra at the moment, Dual SIM, and it does have this function. I'm really keen to try the Sony but this feature is a deal breaker.

    On the Samsung, if I go into Contacts, select a contact, then hit info there's an option to stipulate which SIM should be used for that particular contact. That way I can separate my business contacts from personal and use the right number for each.

    Any users of the Xperia 1 III that can check and confirm whether the Sony has the feature please?

    Thank you.

    I haven't seen this function in my S10+. So I really couldn't say if it is like this on a Sony.

    I can do this on my Sony. In the contact settings there is an option to chose calling sim.

    Thank you very much. Can I just make sure that the menu is available for each individual contact on the phone? Is that an Xperia 1 III?

    Really appreciate your help.

    This is very interesting - Sony themselves confirmed that this feature is NOT available on the 1 III - can any other users confirm?
