    And it will let us see either of our SIM cards. It appears that I've got a message here. Facebook is downloading some goodies as well which is nice of Facebook. Anyways, which ever SIM you have, you can simply use that SIM and then click on messages, for example.

    So this lets you know which of your SIM cards you have, which SIM card you are using
    .
    And it will make it much easier for you when you are trying to manage two phone numbers. Depending on what you are doing with two phone numbers, it can keep you out of trouble too. You may inadvertently answer a work call on a personal number, or a personal call with work stuff, and you want to try and avoid that. Thanks for using VisiHow, we've just shown you how to get your second SIM card installed on your phone. We did not end up needing the PIN and PUK codes, but sometimes you may need them, so it's always good to have them, just in case. Again, thanks a lot, have a great day, and I will see you in our next video.

Questions and Answers

If I add a second SIM to my Samsung mobile, Is my new number displayed to others on WhatsApp registered with first SIM?

Is my new number displayed to others on WhatsApp registered with first SIM?

The new (second-SIM) number will not be displayed in your WhatsApp.

If you wish to show or use it, you will need to reinstall WhatsApp (or clear its cache and data) and register it to your new number, losing all of the active conversations. Your friends will need to add your new number to see you in WhatsApp in that case.
