How the SIM control lock policy works on dual-SIM supported devices?
Last updated July 26th, 2023
- Knox Guard
Knox Guard’s SIM control has 2 main features:
- Mobile Country Code/Mobile Network Code (MCC/MNC) lock
- Mobile number lock
On single-SIM supported devices, the device can be locked with MCC/MNC or a mobile number lock. However, this process is different for dual-SIM supported devices. This article provides guidance on how to lock dual-SIM devices.
SIM control with MCC/MNC lock
The following behavior occurs when an MCC/MNC lock is used for dual-SIM supported devices:
|Lock conditions||Lock behavior|
|MCC/MNC lock applied to both SIM 1 and SIM 2||Device locks if either SIM is removed|
|MCC/MNC lock applied to SIM 1, but not SIM 2||SIM 2 works as long as SIM 1 is in the device|
|MCC/MNC lock applied to SIM 2, but not SIM 1||SIM 1 works as long as SIM 2 is in the device|
SIM control with mobile number lock
When using the mobile number lock with dual-SIM supported devices, as long as SIM 1 remains inserted in the device, SIM 2 works and the device remains unlocked.
