Can you have two phones with the same number? Luckily, this IS possible!
You can make this happen thanks to the MultiSIM service offered by some of the mobile operators in the US, Canada, and other countries around the world. We’re going to address a few different phone types, and carriers including AT&T, Verizon, Bell Canada, Rogers, and other international carriers.
Presently, it is very common to have more than one smartphone.
This is especially true for people who use one for work and the other for leisure and personal.
Instead of having two different phone numbers, you may prefer to use the same mobile number on two phones. Naturally, you can do this if you’re willing to add extra money to your rate. This function is known as a MultiSIM service.
Now, before we dive too deep into this article, it might be helpful for you to watch the first 60-seconds of this YouTube video, and then continue reading below. This video uses T-Mobile specifically, but, this will work with other carriers as well.
The MultiSIM service allows you to have up to four SIM cards with the same number so that you can make or receive calls from any card. In addition, if you have an Internet rate, you can access the web from any of these SIM cards. The best thing is, you can send and receive calls and messages from all devices.
Make sure you don’t confuse the duplicate SIM card with this service, since when registering a new SIM it makes the old card unusable. This would prevent you from using each SIM at the same time.
Keep in mind that if you turn on the ringer for all your devices, any calls, notifications, or messages will ring out on all smartphones at the same time.
One thing to note, not all operators offer MultiSIM service. Vodafone is the only company in India with whom you can contract this service. Remember, it will definitely involve an added cost.
Use the Same Mobile Number on Two Phones
As this service is quite new, most of our Teleoperators are not providing such service as of this article being written. We’ve found that only Vodafone is allowing MultiSIM service at least for now.
Within Vodafone, the service has no upfront registration fee. The cost of the MultiSIM service is Rs.400 per month. According to the company website, the price of calls and other services follow the tariffs of the Price Plan of your Vodafone line. The minimum consumption of your contract is shared between all the cards. If you want to replace your SIM by multi-device service, you can do it through the Online Customers Area.
