    Note that on this settings option there is Slot 1 and Slot 2. If the device has dual SIM activated (that means having 2 SIM cards inserted in the HTC One M8), then different sounds can be chosen for each SIM card, which helps with identifying which SIM card is being contacted. Using Slot 2 works the same way as selecting Slot 1.
