I have an LG G6 with a dual SIM slot. Due to extra data requirements I purchased a WM SIM card in order to switch to when I ran low on my 2D SIM Card.


However even though WM is provided by 2D, I found data performance to be "terrible" with it constantly dropping out requiring the phone to be restarted in order for data to work - which is not ideal


I have however never really known if it was WM causing the issues, or something on my phone




So I thought I would ask .. anyone else who uses WM have issues with data?

Does the LG G6 support 4g in both SIM's?


As I have heard some dual sim phones only support 4g/lte on the primary SIM, and the secondary SIM defaults back to 2g or 3g speeds for data.

Try the Warehouse mobile SIM in a non dual SIM handset and see if the data issue still happens

Yep I am currently on wm and occasionally it will say I ran out of data and I had to restart the handset.

Was using oneplus 3t. Recently switched to a xiaomi mix 2s haven't encountered the issue yet but will see.

I would also suggest swapping the SIM around to check whether it's a restriction/issue related to the second SIM slot.

I have tried WM in the past and found it pretty poor, but I havent used 2degrees in a long time to be able to compare it with them. That was also as the only sim in my old note 4 as well as second sim in my dual sim phone.

Can't say I've had any issues, got a WM sim in an S8 Plus for testing and other than the initial APN setup it's been fine since - haven't had to reboot (not that I can remember anyway)
