Is there a dual SIM phone available in the UK that lets you have both SIMs active at the same time?

What I want is a dual SIM phone that lets you receive calls to either number without specifically having to switch profiles. Is such a thing possible?

Yes, there are two types of these phones avaliable.

One is called "Dual Standby"- This means that both sim cards can send and recieve calls at the same time. BUT as soon as one sim in in a call then the other one stops working.

Then you have Dual Active- These phones do the same as the above so they both work at the same time. BUT unlike standby phones, both sims will work regardless if one is in a call or not. Hence the name active.

What's your budget?
What type of phone? (touchscreen?)
And which phone do you want from the above descriptions or do you not mind?
