First of all, I will address Zello for Sonim Basic Phones (XP5, XP5s, XP3 flip phone)
These phones all support Zello without root, although, the apk has to be signed by Sonim. Follow the instructions below to install Zello on unrooted (XP5, XP5s and XP3 flip phone)
As of now Zello only has the link for the XP3 flip phone, but this works on all phones listed above. I just installed on XP5.
1. Go to Zello dot com (Can't post links yet)
2. Find "Accessories" and then Click "Ruggedized Devices"
3. Scroll down to Sonim XP3 and click "Setup"
4. On the the "Setup" page it will tell you about having to be signed by Sonim.
5. Click the link in 2nd paragraph to download the latest (v.4.66) signed apk.
6. Install and login
Sonim is one of the best basic/zello phones around. A bit difficult to work with, but once you figure out how to install Zello, They work well!!
Secondly, I am unaware of dual sim support on XP5s. I only have the XP5, so I am not sure.
Does the phone have 2 or 3 slots in back? If 2, one is an sdcard slot. If 3, I would assume that you have to unlock from at&t to make that work. As I said before, I don't have the XP5s, so I can't be sure about this.
Please post your results here, so I know if the signed Zello apk worked because I hope to be getting an XP5s in the coming months.
Hope this helps
Zello installation was a breeze following the instructions - it works. The AT&T branded XP5s has a micro SD, and two nano SIM slots (SIM1, SIM2). Mine is unlocked and I'm using Mint (a T-Mobile MVNO). The phone has dual SIM support, but AT&T disabled the capability. So, only SIM1 works- when you install two SIMs a pop up says something like (not exact words) "we've detected a SIM in slot 2 and will be disabled". I'll keep looking to see if there is a way to enable SIM2.
Thanks for the quick response.
