From my experience with dual SIM 3G phone your going to be out of luck if you want both SIMs on at the same time..

There might be the odd one out but the majority of them.  One slot is 2G and the other is 3G/4G.  For phonecalls or SMS they are fine but if you want 3G internet ..... only one would be 3G.  The other I would gather be 2G internet like GPRS.   For most people it shouldn't be an issue cos if you get your data allowances you would probably use that (1) SIM, you don't really need half a gig of data on SIM1 and half a gig of data on SIM2 .... 

Also that most are on standby so if you are on one conversation the other SIM would be off so it goes straight to your voicemail I think or call divert if you have that set up.  I the active ones SIM2 would beep while you are talking on SIM1.  I think there might be one other when you are on a call a diff ringtone would ring for the other but it might be rare.
