Anybody using a Xiaomi mi A2 with a data-only plan and regular calling plan?

Hi, I have the 3gb/$15 Fido tablet plan but need more reliable calls. I'm considering adding the Petro Canada Mobile $15 for 100 minutes and unlimited texting plan. If I got the Xiaomi mi a2 would I be able to use one sim for data and the other for phone calls and texts? I don't need picture messaging. My only concern is, since the mi a2 is dual standby, can it still receive phone calls and texts while my data is being used? Also does the second sim slot support at least 3g? Finally, I did check the hot deals forum and didn't find anything, but if anybody knows of any better deals out there that accomplish the same thing (at least 2gb data, 100 minutes, unlimited texting, pricing around $30/month), I'd be happy to hear about them. Thanks

All phones are pretty much dual standby so you won't have problems. As for a $30 plan with 2GB data and talk and text, you are likely not the only one looking for what doesn't exist.
