Never heard of it. I know there is an internal chip that is phone # specific...maybe they make one with two chips.


Why not just buy two cell phones and duct tape them back to back.:rof:

Never heard of this either. You could have another line and have it forwarded to your one cell phone. Set up distinctive rings for the people who call on the forwarded line.

This begs the question of why you would want to do this since you can only talk to on one line at a time? You know who is calling when you answer so you can answer appropriate to the call being received.

I have a Verizon Voicewing main office line with two different phone #s... one for my PA clients and one for my DE clients (sorry, all of my other clients have to bite the bullet and pay LD charges :icon_mrgreen:). I've never heard of a cell phone with 2 different numbers, though. When I'm out of the office, I have all of my Voicewing calls forwarded to my cell phone... so, in a sense... I have 3 different numbers coming into my cell phone.

Look at google's Grand Central. It allows you to forward to any phone or mutliple phones. I also use Callwave which forwards the call and will email a text and mp3 of the message. You can also screen the message and pick-up if you decide it's important. Multiple numbers going to one phone (or mutliple phones).

I used to own a bag phone which held 4 NAMs in the early days ~1991. I was working in an area where my cell on US Cellular was local to that area whereas my cell on ALLTEL worked at my house. This saved a bundle as Roaming charges were $1 a minute then. I was paying that and $50 for a McCaw Communications (MCI) radio telephone which had the RCC channels. It had a dial pad on the microphone and you could simplex it (that is you couldn't talk and listen at the same instance and people had to hesitate before speaking when you finished). If you missed a call, the operator took a message for you. It honked the car horn when a call came in.

I would be surprised if anyone makes such a phone but OTOH, a retired radio shack cell phone seller and electronics junkie I know said you can get phones that allow you to be on the internet and take a phone call at the same time.

I have two phones...Verizon is business and US Cellular is family. I would love to have just one phone, but last I checked, it wasn't possible (which was a couple of years ago). Maybe the iphone? I would love to have an iphone, but then I would have three phones!

I remember back in the 1990's when cell phones started getting popular. Your phone had an A and B chanel or something like that. Different providers were allocated to the A or B in your area. You could have an A # and a B # if you wanted to switch your phone back and forth. I don't think you can do that now.

There is a cell phone that holds two SIM cards, however; the phone I saw (I believe it was an iClone) required that you determine which one is "ACTIVE" through a menu setting. In other words, if someone called Line 2 and Line 1 was ACTIVE, you would not be able to take the call. It still provides the convenience of having 1 phone for 2 separate numbers.

Hope that helps.
