    Hello please help me out. I have dual Sim in my infinix x551 hot note, Mtn and airtel. When ever I send text that is supposed to be powered by Mtn, the airtel network sends it instead of Mtn. How can this be corrected. I need each network to be responsible for its own messages. Thanks.


      Goto Settings,click on SIM management,click on messaging and select ALWAYS ASK.With that done,Next time u want to send sms,the phone will prompt u to select which SIM to use
