Beyond ridiculous... outrageous. This is not some new thing for these guys. I would not have purchased this phone on release day if I had known dual SIM wouldn't be available.

My friend flashed the Android 11 preview on their IN2017 (OP8 TMo) , and it enabled dual SIM, I'm assuming it'll come with the 11 update.
Has anyone tried flashing the European firmware to see if that enabled dual SIM?

Wow, that is *very* interesting. Still, A11 is a loooong ways off. This is something that should be been working on release day, period. Either that, or there should've been a banner under the order button that said dual SIM support was "coming soon" or something.

True, I should have my IN2025 by Wednesday, I'll tinker around and try to get dual SIM going on it, I'm thinking just flashing the euro fw should be enough, I'm sure there's a way since the IN2023 and IN2020 both already support it.

I am contemplating updating to A11 to see if dual sim will work on my 8 pro.

I tried it with mine, but it didn't allow me to use Sprint data on Android 11, so I downgraded back to 10, it did seem to enable dual SIM but the secondary sim I have is inactive and didn't pick up a signal, but it recognized it as being inserted and that it was a TMobile sim and the phone number on it.
