    I need to purchase a new phone. I have no idea what to purchase. Too many choices. This is what I need it for.

    1. Use in Canada, Japan, China, Hong Kong
    2. Can insert at least 2 sim chips.
    3. Input English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese
    4. Can seperate telephone directories by region. (In China, want to see my China directory, Japan my Japanese directory etc)

    I have no preference between andriod, iphone or windows. I think I want to avoid Nokia's Ovi even though Nokia is dominant in China.

    This is a classic case of too much choice and not sure of anything. I am not a gadget freak. I just want a phone to make phone calls. Internet is not too important.

    This is the killer...only a Shenzhen knockoff of a smartphone would have something like this (It seems like you want a smartphone).

    I guess it is not that important. Been carrying a couple of phones everywhere I go already but I know I am not the only one that has multiple phone numbers.
     
  4. These have been for sale in OZ for a while - a friend has one for travelling and swears by it - he roams his home sim for receiving calls and uses a prepay sim for making calls.
