2 phone numbers 1 phone

Okay I saw the thread about 1 line on two phones....I know illegal. My question is....back in the day you could have dual NAMs (I think that is what is was called). I would really like to be able to put both my work phone and my personal phone on one device (legally of course) so that I don't have to carry two phones. Both phones are Sprint phones.

Anyone got any ideas...or am I just Boned!! LOL

Thanks

Re: 2 phone numbers 1 phone

Number Assignment Module (NAM) - The NAM is the electronic memory in the cellular phone that stores the telephone number and an Electronic Serial Number.

how is this any different than what the other thread was about? i told the other poster all i was comfortable telling him, but why isnt this identical?

kinda opening yourself up for flamming and mod interaction id think...

Re: 2 phone numbers 1 phone

It is different because I am not looking to "cheat" anyone out of anything. I pay for two seperate phone bills (one for personal and one for business) I am simply trying to find out if I can carry them on the same phone. The other thread he was trying to beat the system and use the same phone number on two devices...phone companies make money on services.

Back in the early 90's I had phone that I did just this thing leagally...through LA Cellular. At that time they actually advertised it as a service, to the best of my knowledge no phone company has ever offered that you can use the same number on multiple phones and since the begining of cell service that has been considered cloning.

I don't see where this opens me up for flaming...I am asking a legit question about what was a legit service at one time. At that time I could just progam the second number without even calling the carrier without breaking any carrier rules. That was the type of information I was looking for nothing more and nothing else.

Thanks for you help!

Re: 2 phone numbers 1 phone

I just got off the phoen with my Sprint rep and in fact it WAS a service that you get until a few years ago. Now you can have two number point to one line, but you can't actually carry two lines on one phone. So I guess this is dead question.

Thanks for the help!
