Two Networks?

Is it possible to use two different networks on the same iPhone?

What were you trying to do?

If you really need two networks at the same time you could always use a hotspot/MiFi from the other network...

Technically, your iPhone is connected to two different networks. 1x for voice and EVDO/LTE for data. (if you're on VZW, Sprint)

dual SIM phones

In China and South Asia I have seen many cell phones with dual sim cards. I bought a cheap GSM phone during my travels and one can run a phone on 2 or 1 network at the same time.
